Super Adventure Festival 2024 Begins Today

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on April 16, 2024

Moto is back in Rata Sum, and so is the Super Adventure Festival! Jump into a virtual world, earn baubles, and exchange them for all sorts of retro-themed rewards. This yearly festival is now live and will be available until May 7. You can check out all the details in the full release notes on our official forums.

Super Adventure Festival is accessible to players of any level. Even if you’re brand new to the game, you can easily take part in all this festival has to offer! Read on for a quick rundown of the activities you can participate in during this festival and the rewards you can earn.

Where to Go

The Super Adventure Festival is located in Rata Sum. Check your in-game mail for an Invitation to the Super Adventure Festival and double-click the item to teleport instantly to the Super Adventure Box Hub. You can also travel to the Magustan Court Waypoint, which is conveniently located right next to the Super Adventure Box in Creator’s Commons.

What to Do

When you enter the Super Adventure Box, you will have a different skill set. The new skill bar will help you navigate this different game mode. While you’re inside the box, you won’t take damage from falling, and you can’t use gliders or mounts. But you’ll find that you’re much bouncier than you usually are!

There are two complete worlds you can trek through, and two extra gameplay modes that can modify your adventure: Exploration Mode and Tribulation Mode. If you prefer a laid-back adventure, you can enable Exploration Mode, which will give you some assistance traversing jumping puzzles. If you’re yearning for a punishing challenge, activate Tribulation Mode…at your peril.

The journey begins in World 1. You are sent on a heroic path to save Princess Miya. Your starting weapon is a stick, but you’ll be able to buy other combat options and tools from friendly shopkeepers found in the worlds you’re exploring. Make sure to keep an eye out for little wooden doors!

When you obtain new weapons from merchants inside the Super Adventure Box, they’ll give you new ways to destroy enemies and objects. You can even use bombs to find hidden rooms packed with baubles.

Bounce your way into a sunny glade, and don’t forget to fell every enemy on your way! You’ll need all the baubles you can get your hands on. Every time you get hit by an enemy you will lose a portion of your hearts, so be sure to dodge. When your hearts are empty, you’ll lose one of your lives. As long as you have lives left, you’ll revive at the last checkpoint you reached.

If by chance you have no lives left, worry not; simply purchase a Continue Coin from Moto. Just don’t mind the lava.

Trade 250 baubles to the Super Adventure Box Trader located next to Moto to obtain the festival currency, bauble bubbles! Weapons, armor, utility items, minis, and many more things are available in exchange for bauble bubbles; talk to the trader NPCs just outside the Super Adventure Box or in the Hub.

There are a plethora of new rewards to earn this year. Add a scepter, pistol, sword, and spear to your collection of Retro-Forged weapons, and complete an achievement in the Test Zone to acquire a Mini Green Ooze. Craft new guild hall items to create your own Super Adventure world for your guildmates to enjoy!

Complete the (Annual) Super Adventure Box Nostalgia achievement to earn Golem-Buster weapon skins and the Powered Shoulders, which fit nicely with last year’s Powered Gloves. You can find them in the Achievement tab of the Hero panel under Festivals.

Test Zone

The Test Zone* has undergone some improvements, and Moto is once again inviting players to explore the new area he’s been working on! This year, the Test Zone has been expanded, adding new shops, secrets, and achievements for players to uncover. Gourdon the Racing Choya has a new Adventure in the Test Zone as well, and players can unlock a new Magic Bow tool! To visit the Test Zone, pick up the note on the door of the World 3 House in the Hub and follow the instructions. Have fun!
