What you need to know

  • Guild Wars 2 is a very popular MMORPG that has existed for eight solid years now.
  • In that time, it has had two major expansions, and is about to add a third with End of Dragons, due in 2021.
  • In the meantime, Guild Wars 2, along with both its previous expansions and content, is coming to Steam for the first time.
  • You can watch the trailer for End of Dragons now, which will bring players to the island nation of Cantha.

Guild Wars 2, a popular MMORPG from ArenaNet, is celebrating its eight anniversary with gifts, sales, and more for its players. However, the team also had a few more surprise announcements, including a sneak peak at the game's third major expansion with End of Dragons, which brings players to the island nation of Cantha to the south. End of Dragons is expected sometime in 2021, and will join Heart of Thorns and Path of Fire as expansions packs for Guild Wars 2.

Almost more exciting than the announcement of new content, however, is the announcement that, for the first time, Guild Wars 2 will be coming to Steam, along with all its prior content and expansions. This is a huge deal, and will open up the game to many new players on the world's largest single gaming platform. If you're interested, make sure to stay up to date by following the Guild of Wars 2 website for further details on the End of Dragons expansion, and when exactly this massive online adventure will come to Steam.

In the meantime, you can enjoy the new trailer above, as well as take advantage of new sales and celebration events in-game, like a new ability for your mount if you already own the Path of Fire expansion.
