April is almost upon us, which means that the first day
of April is almost upon us, which means that April Fools' Day
is almost upon us. In the past, the folks at ArenaNet
have proven themselves fond of celebrating this occasion, which has given fans high hopes for continued trolling in the world of Guild Wars 2
. Since March's patch, strange things have been appearing that all seem to hint at some sort of April Fools' joke: Super Adventure Box achievements on the hero panel, mysterious Continue Coins falling out of chests, and a new range of weapon skins added to the sPvP weapon pane.
Of course, it's been pointed out to me that perhaps the most delicious joke of all would be to put in all those clues and then have no actual prank. I can almost taste
the rage of fans who had compulsively run characters through jumping puzzles for days in an attempt to stock up on Continue Coins that suddenly turned out to be worthless.
Fortunately (or not, depending on your sense of humor), that's not the case at all. The Super Adventure Box is real
, and it's almost time for you to start playing it. Let's talk about it, shall we?
