Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga Episode Three Is Coming In Late May

ArenaNet announced this morning that Episode Three of Guild Wars 2: The Icebrood Saga is coming on May 26th. The episode itself is called "No Quarter", and much like the title suggests, there will be none given as two codes enter into a civil war. The episode will open up a brand new part of Tyria: the Drizzlewood Coast that's never been seen before, as it has been tucked into the viridian forests of the Woodland Cascades. This is totally going to be a World vs. World game mode scenario where you'll be thrown into one of the biggest maps they've ever created for the game in what is essentially a meta-event of epic proportions. You can check out the trailer for it below, along with a complete list of all the additions thrown into this new episode of Guild Wars 2.
