Tequatl Rising update arrives next week

Good afternoon,

Something has been gathering power in the depths of Tyria. It is faster, stronger, deadlier… and about to return.

NCSOFT and ArenaNet today officially unveil Tequatl Rising, the next release for Guild Wars 2, scheduled to go live in the game on Tuesday, 17 th September.

The update features the return of Tequatl the Sunless, the fierce dragon boss who rises from the water to destroy and devour. New and more challenging combat mechanics from Tequatl will require players to work together and adopt creative strategies to prevail; the fight promises to be epic and one of the most difficult encounters yet!

But that’s not all. The update also includes an improved Looking For Group (LFG) tool to help players more easily find groups within the game.
