Guild Wars 2’s Fifth Expansion Arriving in August

ArenaNet and NCSoft announced the fifth expansion for MMORPG Guild Wars 2. Guild Wars 2: Janthir Wilds will release for PC on August 20, 2024. It will be priced at $24.99 and some with three major post-launch updates in the period until summer 2025. In addition, the game will be made available on the Epic Games Store later this summer.

Janthir Wilds’s story takes place following the events of previous expansion Secrets of the Obscure as players make contact with the pastoral Lowland Kodan in the rugged region of Janthir while discovering the secret of a primordial magic. There will be two new maps for players to explore at launch, with a third to be added in a later update. The expansion will also add the new two-handed spear weapon type, the Warclaw mount to single-player exploration, a new raid, the new Homesteads player housing system, and more.

Guild Wars 2 is set 250 years after the events of the original Guild Wars. It was originally released in 2012, becoming available on Steam in 2022, and currently has four expansions: Heart of Thorns, Path of Fire, End of Dragons, and Secrets of the Obscure. The game and expansions are available as buy-to-play titles.
