The Icebrood Saga's next episode is just a week away and Guild Wars 2 players will be able to pick up more than one episode for free this time around.
Guild Wars 2 Living Story episodes normally cost 200 Gems or the currency's equivalent in Gold or real-life money but they are also free during the launch week for everyone who logs in. The Icebrood Saga's finale, Champions, will behave differently since it will allow players to grab four episodes in a single go, provided they log in upon release, which will happen on March 9, 2021.
Three new Dragon Response Missions will become available at this time - located in Caledon Forest, Bloodtide Coast and Fireheart Rise. We will be facing the minions of both Primordus and Jormag and Braham will be taking the story spotlight.
Furthermore, three new factions will become available for recruitment, with Tengu looking like the first ones to join us. A new faction will become available on a bi-weekly basis all the way until April 20, 2021.
As far as the gear goes, Dragonslayer weapons will be available in their new appearance once again and it looks like this is their final form.
Once all the new factions are up for recruitment, it won't be long before we get the fourth chapter, Judgement, which is expected in late April. The only requirements for picking up these episodes for free are to log in upon release and own Path of Fire expansion.
