ArenaNet has announced that its latest Guild Wars 2 content update is coming your way on January 28th. It's called Flame and Frost: Prelude, and it's the prologue to a "multi-stage narrative that will bring big changes to Guild Wars 2 in the months to come."
What does that mean in terms of actual features?
Well, there's an improved achievement system, new laurels, and guesting. The dev team is also "adding a wide range of new gear," and various performance enhancements like WvW tweaks, side-kicking balancing, and UI improvements. There's more, too, and full details are available on the GW2 website.
