Expansions, short for expansion packs, are paid content upgrades for Guild Wars 2. They introduce new content only available for those who purchase it, including zones, masteries, and elite specializations. They work as standalone products, so you can buy them separately, without needing to own the previous installments to activate the latest release.

Purchase of expansions also provides access to the current Living World content, through which further instances and zones are periodically added to the game. Previous Living World episodes (excluding Season 1) can be purchased for play at any time through the Gem Store.
