Scavenger Hunts And Improved Reward Systems Are Coming To Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 offers a pretty big world for players to explore, and one incentive for players to walk off the beaten path is to engage in the game’s on-going scavenger hunt.
Game director Colin Johanson provided a brief update on the status of the scavenger hunt, as it’s a topic that’s been brought up time and time again by players on the game’s official forums. He stated that the studio isn’t currently working on building “any sort of legendary precursor scavenger hunt”, but added that it’s something they’re planning to work on in the future and that they’re in the midst of figuring out how it would function. The update follows news that the game will receive an “expansion’s worth” of content in February.
He clarified that as no one at ArenaNet is working on the system, players shouldn’t expect anything in the updates for the next three months.
“We are however working on expanding reward systems to make them more re-rewarding across all parts of the game, making the open world more rewarding, and adding new ways you can earn precursors as rewards via new reward systems taking advantage of our open persistent world,” added Johanson.
“Some of these additions will come as early as the January release, and will get covered in more detail in the next week or two as well release all the details about this release once testing has signed off it’s all ready to go in January.”
Johanson says that the studio will provide a bigger summary of their goals with reward systems, which will be out next week.
Roughly translated from someone who plays Guild Wars 2, what this means is that the game’s open world events will offer collectible tokens to serve as reward system for participation.
