The Living World in Guild Wars 2 is ArenaNet's official term for changes to the game intended to bring the world of Guild Wars 2 to life. Each major game update includes NPCs, events, and sometimes new instances that tell the story of Tyria's ongoing evolution. Although most of the Living World content has been temporary, these updates also have included permanent changes to the in-game world.
