ArenaNet has revealed a new trailer for their buy-to-play MMO Guild Wars 2, this time featuring the very cheery and quite snowy Wintersday event being held from December 14th through to January 3rd. The new event will be celebrating Christmas in many ways, including the the asuran Toymaker Tixx who will be making his way around to all of the racial cities, with a final stop at neutral city Lion's Arch.
The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.
This year the city of Lion’s Arch will host the asuran Toymaker Tixx as their special Wintersday guest of honor. Before Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch in his massive airship toy workshop, he’ll visit every major city in Tyria to deliver Wintersday toys and holiday cheer.
The event will introduce a variety of new events and additions including but definitely not limited to new Wintersday items in the Gem Store, a new jumping puzzle titled Winter Wonderland, Snowball Mayhem and a Bell Choir. Beginning on December 20th players will also be invited to take part in an event titled "Toypocalypse" where the toys in Tixx’s workshop have gone haywire and must be stopped.
