Guild Wars 2: Secrets of the Dark in Trial

Only 540 days, or a year and a half, passed between the release of End of Dragons and Secrets of the Obscure, the two most recent expansions for Guild Wars 2. A complete change from the past, when players had to wait several years . for new expansions. But to compensate there was the “Living World”, mini-addons so to speak, divided into episodes and seasons. They were free when released, but you had to pay for them later if you “missed it.” That’s over now: more frequent smaller extensions with free post-release updates. Secrets of the Obscure is the first content pack based on this system. Consequently, we first wanted to wait and see what a post-launch update would bring in this new era.

“Lifting the Veil” on November 7, 2023 was the starting signal for us to give SotO a review. This was already a major concern for us before, because the new expansion represents a new beginning, not only in terms of the payment model, but the story and the game world also leave behind ten years of dragon hunting.
