Contents

A release is a game update that introduces content pertaining to a theme or event. These themes include holiday events and narratives that tell a story of the world of Tyria. The releases are often accompanied by other changes to the game, such as bug fixes, profession rebalancing in PvP, new activities, and themed items in the Gem Store. ArenaNet currently has a schedule of releases every two weeks.[1]

[edit] Notes

  • The company generally refers to non-release updates as hot fixes, updates, or patches.
  • Before a release, ArenaNet publishes a preview of the content on the game's official site. They also publish official release notes on the News and Announcements forum in a new post. Subsequent patches are added to the post for the most recent major content update, which has almost always been an official release.
