Super Adventure Box Coming To Guild Wars 2
NCSoft continue their reign at the top of the free-to-play MMORPG game world with yet another content update for the critically acclaimed Guild Wars 2. NCSoft have become known for introducing bizarre and entertaining updates for their top titles on April Fools Day and today is no different as they announce the immediate introduction of the Super Adventure Box.
The latest in an impressive line of free updates for Guild Wars 2, the Super Adventure Box introduces players to a whole new side of Tyria. The popular game world has seen a complete overhaul as its now infected with trends from the 80s with pixelated rabbits, mushrooms and even retro music.
“It started out as a fun side project idea”, laughed Colin Johanson, Game Director at ArenaNet. “Originally, we were going to have a laugh with a fake 8-bit update, but the more the team worked on it the more we realised we had something really cool on our hands. We figured; the gaming community are really going to love this, let’s expand on the concept of the Living World in Guild Wars 2 and make it for real”.
“We’ve turned the clock back 30 years”, joked Daniel Dociu, ArenaNet’s multi award-winning Art Director. “With retro-style videogames such a part of the Zeitgeist, we’re excited to marry Guild Wars 2’s cutting-edge gameplay with childhood nostalgia. The results are hilarious!”
The Super Adventure Box includes:
- Cutting-edge graphics from the 1980s, featuring over 256 colors. A visual feast of nostalgia.
- Three brand new levels that combine various features from popular 1980s titles
- Tons of new items
