The next monthly Guild Wars 2 event has been announced and is titled “Secret of Southsun Cove”.
Set after the events of the war in “Falme and Frost” event, Secret of Southsun Cove takes the refugees of the said war to Southsun Cove. Players get to explore the cove and attempt to solve the problems plaguing the island.
The Guild Wars 2 blog gives the following description for the upcoming event:
“Trouble is brewing on the tropical island of Southsun Cove. The merchants and traders of The Consortium have given shelter to refugees driven from their lands by the Molten Alliance, but many of these new arrivals feel more like prisoners than guests. With the new settlers on the verge of rioting and someone—or something—driving the local wildlife to new heights of aggression, it’s up to you and Lionguard Inspector Kiel to quell the violence and discover the Secret of Southsun!”
The event offers a slew of new content including a brand new quest requiring players to partner with Inspector Kiel to protect the settlements on Southsun Cove and uncover the source of the mysterious animal attacks.
This content also introduces features like new world vs. world traps which include anti-stealth fields, traps that remove supplies from enemies as well as other tricks that will be announced later.
Moreover the event also features a new mini game called “Crab Toss” in which the players can blow off steam by capturing hermit crabs and dealing with karka attacks.
Secret of Southsun Cove is planned to go live on May 14th and similar to other in-game events, it will be free for the current players of Guild Wars 2.
