Escape from Lion’s Arch in the next Guild Wars 2 update

Posted on February 11, 2014 AT 07:17am

You may have already guess Scarlet’s devious plans, but for those that haven’t the title of Guild Wars 2‘s next update, Escape from Lion’s Arch, should give you a clue.

That’s right Scarlet is bringing all of her forces to raze the game’s central hub to the ground. “Aetherblade airships, dirigibles of death piloted by the dreaded pirates who now serve Scarlet, loom over the city like birds of prey. On the ground, the cruel serpentine krait and subterranean dredge hunt for prey and terrorize its citizens,” the developer explains.

Now you’re probably wondering what will happen to all of the city’s major services. Well ArenaNet has revealed (via Massively) that all essential services that are unique to the city will be moved to Vigil Keep during the attack, including the Asura gates to other cities and Fractals of the Mist. Personal story steps that require the use of Lion’s arch will still be accessible via a new entrance, and 100 percent map completion will still be possible, but the scenery won’t be the same.

Escape from Lion’s Arch is set to go live on February 18.
