After Guild Wars 2’s three million activations announcement and Colin Johanson’s blog post on ArenaNet’s dedication to supporting Guild Wars 2’s live game in 2013, the developer has announced that its latest Guild Wars 2 content update is coming your way on January 28th.

It’s called Flame and Frost: Prelude, and it’s the prologue to a “multi-stage narrative that will bring big changes to Guild Wars 2 in the months to come.”

In the first update of the new year, players will be treated to a number of new features, including:

• New achievement currency for daily/monthly achievements and new items you can buy with the new currency. There will also be rotating daily achievements every day of the week
• Guesting to allow playing with friends on different worlds.
• One Week, Two-Team PvP Tournaments and a new PvP Map permanently added to the rotation
• Several more game improvements and balancing enhancements

More specific information on the update can be found on the Guild Wars 2 website.
