ArenaNet teased us a little bit with some random screenshots showing off Wintersday in Guild Wars 2, but it's not the same as seeing the holiday in motion. Today they gave in and posted a full Wintersday trailer, narrated by what must be an asuran reciting a holiday poem. It probably doesn't help that asurans are quite a bit terrifying and adding in a giant hovering golem-ship full of presents doesn't help at all. I am as excited as I am fearful for Winstersday this year in Guild Wars 2.
The new trailer shows off a ton of exciting new content for the holiday, including new (and likely premium) winter coat costumes, a new Lion's Arch snow globe statue where the Mad King had erupted out of the ground, and what looks like an epic jumping puzzle. Seriously, I think I saw a billion little platforms with two giant snowmen looming in the distance. Hopefully the Clock Tower from the Halloween event was just a sampling of what ArenaNet can do with jumping puzzles.
Wintersday begins on December 14 and runs through January 3. Look for the giant floating golem-ship and quaggans throwing snowballs soon! Guild Wars 2 delivering another epic content update, no subscription needed.
