Season 3 of Guild Wars 2's Living World begins

The third season of Guild Wars 2's Living World—a free, episodic series that adds new story and other content—has begun, the first episode of which has been detailed over on the official site. Out of the Shadows takes place after—spoiler?—Mordremoth’s death, adding a new environment, the Chaos Isles, which seems to comprise a load of island chunks floating in a mysterious void. There's also a new PvP map that includes an appearance by a spooky ghost ship.

If you can't remember what's happened in the story before now, have a watch of this recap video, then tilt your head downwards for the latest trailer for The Living World season 3.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
