On November 19th, "Whispers in the Dark," the first episode of Guild Wars 2's Icebrood saga, is released. An atmospheric trailer and a host of official screenshots make the wait a bit more enjoyable.

So far, the much-anticipated ice-cream saga in Guild Wars 2 has been (buy now for 39,95 €) not really started yet. The entertaining Prologue "Bound by Blood" was not yet a proper episode. But that changes on 19 November, then appears namely "Whispers in the dark". The first trailer and a bunch of new screenshots definitely make you want more.

Guild Wars 2: Creepy Trailer for the episode "whispers in the dark"

New trailer builds horror mood in GW2

Already in the first seconds it becomes clear that this is no longer a light-hearted snack, but a bitter cold region, which demands the first victims before our arrival. In the second half – after introducing the features – it gets really scary, with the previously announced Monster Boneshawk, which will make life difficult for us.

The new features of the GW2 episode from the trailer

  • New area: The Bjora Marshes
  • New mastery: Raven Tuning (opens new passages and protects you with its light)
  • New mastery: Essence Manipulation (unlocks different powers to deal with these enemy weak points)
  • Three assault missions – in weekly rotation
  • Upgradeable Boreal Weapon Set

In addition, the developers have a press release yet new exotic scepter announced that it will be raven-style (maybe like the legendary weapon Nimmemehr?) and a "sweet bonfire treat for toasting over the fire," suggesting a new buff food.

In any case, the numerous types of enemies that we encounter in the Bjora swamps also look impressive: Wild Norn, who roam in their werewolf-like transformations, sons of Svanir who are infested with ice, but also otherwise friendly Kodan glow with a disastrous Fire.

Unfortunately, these features are missing

Although the trailer promises great new content that many have been expecting, some players are also disappointed: It's been more than ten months since the game got a new fractal, so the hope was great that the Eisbrut saga would be great right now comes with a new adventure of this kind.
