This timeline is independent of our announcement and release plans for Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons, but we’re excited to reveal more information on those as soon as the time is right! For now, let’s take a look at what you’ll find in The Icebrood Saga: Champions.
The devs promise players that they can look forward to an earth-shattering story finale that will be felt throughout Tyria – and even across the seas, replayable Dragon Response Missions, which can be tackled solo or in a group of up to five players. In these encounters, you’ll head to invasion points to shore up defenses and protect the area from rampaging dragon minions. Work together with allied reinforcements to neutralize powerful dragon champions—the ultimate threat at the heart of the assaults.
During global faction mobilization events, players can pitch in to train, rally, and build trust with factions both familiar and unlikely. You’ll be rewarded for your efforts, and your allies will begin randomly appearing in Dragon Response Missions to lend their special strengths to the fight.
