The April 2014 Feature Pack will include updates to game systems such as upgrades to quality of life and balancing to improve existing gameplay systems.

“We’ve got a lot planned for this first feature pack; too much to talk about in one blog post or video,” said ArenaNet. “Between now and the release, we’ll announce and discuss each major feature contained within the April 2014 Feature Pack.”

Updates to the trait system will include 40 new traits and a new horizontal progression system.

“We’ll also be discussing these changes and some other features tomorrow on our Ready Up livestream at noon Pacific Time, so make sure to tune in and check back each day on the Guild Wars 2 website for announcements of our features over the coming weeks,” said the developer.

The April 2014 Feature Pack will go live on April 15.
