The original Living World was designed to be played alongside a series of dynamic world events, and unlike the rest of the Living World seasons that we’ve come to love and know, the first season has been locked away for a long time. Now, with the latest episodes, players can finally enjoy the story and the events that contain all the critical information and reasons behind why the world of Tyria is the way it is.

This catastrophe saw much of the old city swallowed by the sinkhole, and a massive change to the city needed to happen. Alongside this, players also get the opportunity to meet the infamous Scarlet Briar and unearth the plot that led to the events of Heart of Thorns.
