It’s the Beginning of the End in Guild Wars 2: The Origins of Madness
Scarlet Briar isn’t going out without a fight.
The Guild Wars 2 arch-villain has been wreaking havoc on Tyria since the MMO’s launch over a year ago, but now ArenaNet pr0mises an “epic end” to her storyline. That ending begins with The Origins of Madness, the first content update of the new year, which is set for release on January 21.
Scarlet is once again up to no good, and in Origins of Madness, she’s unleashing her Twisted Marionette. It may sound silly, but it’s actually a massive Voltron-like robot hell-bent on mass destruction. Over on the Bloodtide Coast, Briar has also unearthed the Great Jungle Wurm, a multi-headed creature that ArenaNet says is “so powerful that only an army of players can challenge it.”
There you have it. Epic battles and the beginning of the end of Scarlet Briar is coming to Guild Wars 2 next week.
