Guild Wars 2 : The Nightmares Within New Content and Contests

 Another update is to hit Guild Wars 2. Guild Wars 2: The Nightmares Within is set for release on the 12th November and will follow on from the October update Tower of Nightmares. Having breached the defenses of the tower players will now have to team up and challenge the creatures within the stronghold. 

This new update also includes several new events and rewards:

New Events: 


  •  Lingering Poison: Though the Tower of Nightmares has been breached, the Toxic Alliance’s nefarious presence remains. Players will find that Kessex Hills and the surrounding countryside still are befouled by poisonous pollen.
  •  Face The Nightmares Within: Special encounters await players brave enough to enter rooms within the Tower of Nightmares. What will they find? Agents of the evil Scarlet Briar? Or something much more insidious? Only one thing is certain: strength, determination and resilience will be required to survive.
  • The End of Nightmares?: Marjory Delaqua, the human detective, developed a special antitoxin to destroy the deadly menace at the heart of the Tower of Nightmares, but the team she dispatched to inject it never returned. Players will get their chance to pick up the fight and succeed where those before them failed.

New Rewards:

  •  Antitoxic Fashion: Players completing the meta-achievement for The Nightmares Within will unlock a special Gasmask Skin that features the latest design in air purification and toxin prevention. This universal skin can be applied to any piece of head armour.
  •  Exclusive Looks: Players can complete their wardrobes with a new Air Filtration Device – a dry-land version of the starter aquatic helm – or get the new Toxic Spore back item.
  • Minis: Players can earn two new Toxic Krait minis – one by destroying Toxic Alliance foes, the other by killing a special enemy hidden deep in the heart of the Tower of Nightmares.
  •  Tri-Key Chest: Players collecting three keys – either from foes within the Tower of Nightmares or by bartering for them with Marjory Delaqua’s helper, Dee – can open the chest for a chance to win special treasures.


Rock the Nightmare Music Video Contest:

On-top of this new in-game content Guild Wars 2 will also host a music video contest. From now until the 26th November players can submit their one minute music video to “The Nightmares Within” song which is available at the AreaNet SoundCloud. 

Those who come up with the most unique ideas will win SteelSeries gaming gear and a £1,000 prize winner will also gain a unique 3D-printed Guild Wars 2 guitar from Sygnus Guitars. All rules related to the competition can be found here.
