ArenaNet's first expansion for its popular MMO Guild Wars 2
has just been announced at PAX South. It's called Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns
and expands the endgame experience, all while maintaining the current level cap.
rnWhy isn't the level cap being increased? The studio didn't want players to have to worry about their current gear being rendered obsolete. Instead, players will get a new character progression system called "Masteries," which provide new skills required to survive in the expansion's jungle setting.
