Snowballs, candy canes and presents can only mean one thing…the holiday season has officially arrived in Tyria as the Guild Wars 2 universe kicks off its annual in-game event, Wintersday, today! ArenaNet invites you and your readers to join the celebration of this long-standing and beloved holiday tradition now through Jan. 2nd.

This year, players will be able to enjoy some new surprises, including ice castle-themed guild hall decoration pieces and the “Secret Lair of the Snowmen,” a 10-player instance with unique rewards, including Wintergreen-themed weapons. There will also be new additions to the set of candy cane themed weaponry, several new minipets, rare items from the Wintersday gift boxes and new meta-achievements.

In addition, players can look forward to the return of their favorite holiday festivities and activities:

  • The Winter Wonderland jumping puzzle
  • Mount races through Divinity’s Reach
  • Toypocalypse: Band together with other players to defend gift-bearing dolyaks against an onslaught of malfunctioning toys
  • Tixx’s Infinirarium: Enter and help the jolly Toymaker Tixx prepare to share the wonder of Wintersday with all of Tyria
  • Bell Choir: Take center stage and make beautiful music to celebrate the season
  • Snowball Mayhem: Gather as many gifts as possible in this PvP snowball fight

Best of all, Wintersday content is free to all players. For more information about Wintersday, please visit:
