You can say what you will about ArenaNet and Guild Wars 2, but you can’t say that they’re not punctual. The developer vowed to deliver content updates on a schedule of about every two to three weeks and they’re doing a good job of keeping to it thus far.
The last update, Sky Pirates of Tyria, deployed on just one-week ago on June 25th. Today ArenaNet revealed details for the next update coming on July 9th with the Bazaar of the Four Winds. The update will continue to evolve Guild Wars 2’s Living Story with merchants converging from all corners of Tyria to sell their wares complete with shady characters and the mystical flying Zephyr Sanctum. The update also includes the chance to earn new rewards with the addition of the Skyhammer PvP map, Belcher’s Bluff minigame, Sanctum Sprint competitive race, and a scavenger hunt in the Labyrinthine Cliffs.
