Guild Wars 2 developer ArenaNet will launch a brand-new event between December 14th to January 3rd called ‘Wintersday’, a festive season that will spread across the land of Tyria. Get the details and artwork below.

The event was revealed over on the official Guild Wars 2 blog, and the following synopsis was posted:

“The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.

“This year the city of Lion’s Arch will host the asuran Toymaker Tixx as their special Wintersday guest of honor. Before Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch in his massive airship toy workshop, he’ll visit every major city in Tyria to deliver Wintersday toys and holiday cheer.”

It follows previous event The Lost Shores. Check out the official Wintersday concept art below:
