Guild Wars 2 Shadow of the Mad King Event Starts Tonight

Guild Wars 2‘s first major update, Shadow of the Mad King, drops today. The titular Halloween event that comes with the update will begin tonight and run until November 1st, spanning four acts.

Act 1 begins tonight, Act 2 on October 26, Act 3 on October 28, and the final act begins on October 31. The story follows an old folktale of a tyrannical Krytan king that was slain by his own people after making them suffer for years under his mad reign. The king’s body was allegedly chopped into pieces, and his spirit was banished to the Underworld — but he can return to the mortal realm for just one day a year: on Halloween.

I love Halloween events in my games! Been looking forward to the one in Guild Wars 2 since I first heard of the event, never really had a chance to check out the one in the original GW though, might be a good time to check that out too.
