ArenaNet’s free-to-play MMORPG Guild Wars 2 gets the latest update and invites players to the annual Dragon Bash event.

For those new to Guild Wars 2, the Dragon Bash is a summer festival celebrating Tyria’s resistance and victories against the Elder Dragons. Several festive games are available during the event period.

For example, you can enter the Dragon Arena and fight against lifelike dragon holograms where you can show the world what you’re made of. You can also engage in the Dragon Arena Survival if you want a more challenging experience.

This event will end on June 28 at 3 p.m. EST.
