After continuingly adding new content to their buy-to-play MMO Guild Wars 2 in the form of monthly "live" updates, with the latest going live today in the form of Sky Pirates of Tyria, players can now expect even more content being delivered in a shorter time period.
Lead content designer Mike Zadorojny has revealed in a recent interview with GamerZines
that fans of the MMO can expect updates to new content every two weeks, instead of the usual three week deadline. "It’s a marathon not a sprint and we've been getting better with each of our releases, in terms of how we budget, how we plan it out, how we manage personnel etc," Zadorojny said. "Now we have four full ‘Living World’ teams that are building these content updates, so that we can stagger releases and make sure that people [developers] can decompress and get the quality time necessary to build a good design document before going back in and trying to implement it all over again."
According to Zadorojny, these consistent updates and the ability to even do fortnightly updates is thanks to the dynamic gem store that is in-game, which offers various cosmetic or small boosts for real-life cash.
Currently players anticipate new content for the MMO every month in the form of "living" content, where players will complete a number of new dynamic quests, events and dungeons, some of which unlock only after a certain percentage of completion. For this month ArenaNet revealed Pirates of Tyria, which has you once again partnering up with Inspector Ellen Kiel of the Lionguard as you spearhead an investigation into the Lion's Arch murder.
