Tuesday, 7th May 2013 16:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

ArenaNet has announced Guild Wars 2′s next update, The Secret of Southsun.

Slated for release next week, the update contains the Southsun Cove region in which players are tasked with “keeping the peace.” Apparently, inspector Ellen Kiel of the Lionguard has been tasked with restoring order to the island, and she needs your help.

With the new content, players will partner with Kiel to protect the settlements on Southsun Cove and uncover the source of the mysterious animal attacks.

Also included in the update are Traps, which will be introduced in World vs World. Traps can be purchased from the new Traps and Tricks Outfitters on each WvW map, starting with anti-stealth fields and traps that remove supply from enemy players.

In the months ahead even more ways to use traps will be introduced.

Finally, a new game is included called Crab Toss. In this instanced mini-game, players try to score points by capturing a hermit crab and withstanding karka attacks.

Guild Wars 2: The Secret of Southsun launches May 14.

    This sounds like it will evolve into some bigger event. So cool… Last big event is still in progress and they are throwing in an introduction to other.

    Even if it’s not something big… Still – cool that they are updating often.

    Meh, I didn’t like this last event. Why do I have to play it in a certain time frame. Also, why does it have to be a dungeon? I hate dungeons. I’m a pvp/wvw player. I don’t know. I hope it will be more accessible than this last event.
