Heart of Thorns has now been out for a good while and it has added raids and a lot of new meta map events. It will definitely keep you busy and they added a whole new end game class overhaul so you can morph your classes into a specialty basically making it brand new again!

Heads up, Heart of Thorns is in beta, and if you haven't played GW2 yet, you can buy the expansion now which includes the core game at no extra cost AND participate in every beta event from the time you prepurchase until the expansion is released!

Upcoming expansion, projected profits in the fourth fiscal quarter this year, but that's the closest thing we have to a release date.

They just announced an official expansion today. The name of it will be Guild Wars 2 : Heart of Thorns. It will be a retail expansion in the traditional sense. You can find out more on the official Guild Wars 2 website. heartofthorns.guildwars2.com

No, there are no expansion packs available. However, what there is in the place of an expansion is an ever changing world. The developers have discussed in the past and in recent interviews that there will likely not be any expansions to the game. What you do get in its place is a constantly changing world, powered by their Living Story content. The Living Story is new content that expands upon the original storyline, however, can be played on its own should you wish to do so. The story has major impacts on the current world, new zones open, cities have been destroyed, zones have had terrain incredibly changed by this. It is all very exciting. New rewards, new content all available every two weeks or so. You also get the seasonal content, such as Wintersday, Dragon Festival, and the Halloween content.

It doesn't have any expansions yet, but they do a steady update of content every 2 weeks, which are like mini updates. They are getting ready to bring out what looks to be a bigger update in next week or two which is exciting!

There aren't exactly any expansion packs, per say, as they did with Guild Wars (1), but they are constantly and consistently releasing new "campaigns" so to speak. Every few weeks they release a wave of new things to do, wrapped up in a storyline, usually with a main quest. They don't cost anything extra, either.The current event is Tequal Rising. AND from now until October 3rd, you can play Guild Wars 2 for free!

If it's anything like the first Guild Wars, there will be eventually. As of now, no.

Not yet. The game is brand new. But expansions will occur in the future and they will be, as I understand, free of charge to everyone who owns the base game.

No. They have events like 'Halloween' and 'Lost Shores' (November 16). You can't buy an expansion but you get new content for free.

Guild Wars 2 has yet to release an expansion (Halloween doesn't truly count) however, coming soon this November, Arenanet is releasing The Lost Shores expansion that will be available for both PC and Mac clients simultaneously.

Not yet, though they did have a halloween update for the holiday. it is over now, but it was a fairly decent content expansion for the week of the holiday. I expect there will be some updates included with the base game for content before they release any actual expansions for sale. they also have a large portion of the map that is as of yet unavailable. there are definitely update plans for the future :-) PLUS no monthly subscription fee!!

None at the moment,but it's possible there may be one in the future.Seeing as how it's a mmorpg with huge player base behind it.
