Many MMO's have their special holiday events, such as Halloween and Christmas. Guild Wars 2 the latest MMORPG will be no exception.

From all accounts it seems like the PvP content is the thing that is still occupying many players in GW2 but this new content will focus on Halloween, but it doesn't stop there...

The content update is called 'Shadow of the Mad King'.  It will be released on Tyria starting October 22nd. It will include many Halloween events, which last until October 31st. However,  also new explorable area's, items, dynamic events and more will be released with the update, which will remain until after October 31st.

ArenaNet announced the following:

Halloween

Halloween is coming! Festivities are afoot, and Tyria will be transformed with decorations, new mini-games, new dynamic events, and more. Despite the celebrations there are those who dread the coming of Halloween and all that it may bring, for it is the time of year when barriers between the realms are weakest. Be prepared for an epic adventure in four acts starting October 22 and running until October 31.

Black Lion Trading Company

Never one to miss out on an opportunity, Evon Gnashblade has stocked all new items at the Black Lion Trading Company, including Halloween costumes and new transforms that will allow you to play Costume Brawl with fellow costumed players.

PvP Paid Tournaments

Paid tournaments will be available for competitive, five-person teams. These tournaments require tickets to enter and give better prizes than normal tournaments. Participating teams will earn qualifier points that will allow them to compete in future, larger tournaments. Tournament tickets can be earned from winning normal tournaments or purchased in the Gem Store.

Tyria Evolving
The world continues to evolve with new events, jumping puzzles, bosses, mini-dungeons, and achievements appearing across a variety of maps.

 

Are you excited or scared?

It's not about celebrating, it's about having a good time, like quad said ;). My sentence just referred to the fact that no one does anything about it here.
