A new expansion to 2012 hit MMO Guild Wars 2 is finally arriving on Sept. 22.

It's been two years since Guild Wars 2's first expansion, Heart of Thorns, was released, and since then fans have been eagerly awaiting any news

The expansion, called Path of Fire, will give players a brand-new region to discover as part of a quest to take on a malevolent god. Players will be able to trek through vast magical desert plains, ancient temples, and ruins to take on a series of new quests—all while discovering Tyria's history. It's a return to a locale that was a was a major part of the original Guild Wars: the Crystal Desert.

In total there are five new open-world zones to explore. The game is also introducing mounts, which developer ArenaNet announced earlier this summer, giving players an all new means to traverse the vast landscapes.

Fans will be able to pre-purchase the expansion right now for as little as $50 and receive additional bonus items in-game. Players who missed out on the first expansion pack can also buy both together for a discount.
