On July 23rd ArenaNet will release a new update for Guild Wars 2 called Cutthroat Politics. After the recent Dragon Bash events, War hero Ellen Kiel and Black Lion Trader Evon Gnashblade are both determined to claim up the empty seat on the Captain’s Council of Lion’s Arch.
As you play Guild Wars 2 during the two weeks of the Cutthroat Politics release you will earn support tokens that you can use to help your favorite candidate win the election. Your choice will change the future events and the Living World of Guild Wars 2. The winner will also show his appreciation by reducing the cost of certain goods or services and will host a permanent rotation of well-loved mini-games.
Beside the new campaign, Cutthroat Politics will bring three new activities: Southsun Survival, Aspect Arena and Candidate Trials PVE Challenge where you can earn exclusive rewards like a beautiful Desert Rose, a stylish Zephyr Rucksack or a little miniature Ellen Kiel or Evon Gnashblade of your own.
