Guild Wars will be turning 4 years old. In true ArenaNet fashion, the game has kicked off an epic event that will last until Noon on April 29th. There is much of the usual festivities we've come to expect from Guild Wars, such as sugary treats, fireworks, Rollerbeetle Racing, the Dragon Arena and much more. Those characters turning four will receive their special four-year birthday mini pets on April 28th, but as an added bonus, those characters celebrating their 1-, 2- or 3-year birthdays will also receive a mini pets from their corresponding year.
If that's not enough, there's the brand new April update, just released last night. This update isn't a simple skill balance or bug fix, it actually introduces new mechanics and exciting new features to the game. We were given a teaser about this update earlier this month, but now the complete details, and some new surprises have arrived. Read on past the cut below to find out more details on these features.
