Fan-favorite dungeon offers players more retro-style fun in latest content update
BELLEVUE, Wash. – Aug. 27, 2013: ArenaNet today announced the return of Super Adventure Box, the wildly popular, 8-bit-inspired dungeon, to Guild Wars 2 starting Sept. 3. The new and improved version of this “game within a game” offers more zones, modes and rewards, and will go live with Guild Wars 2’s next update, continuing ArenaNet’s pattern of delivering players exciting new content every two weeks, a pace unparalleled by Western competitors.
Super Adventure Box originated as an April Fools’ Day joke earlier this year, but quickly became a fan favorite with its pixelated 3D graphics, retro music and nostalgic gameplay that stirred memories of video games from yesteryear. Designed in-game by Moto, a crafty asura, to be a virtual reality simulator to educate the younger generation, Super Adventure Box will take players back to school with new and more difficult challenges.
Players can get an early look at the update by joining a livestream with ArenaNet developers on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at noon (PDT) on the Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel: http://www.twitch.tv/guildwars2.
Among the events, rewards and features that will be included are the following:
