Guild Wars 2′s next update is ‘Edge of the Mists’

Posted on January 28, 2014 AT 06:29am

ArenaNet has announced that Guild Wars 2‘s next major update will include The Edge of the Mists World vs. World map.

The map has been in beta testing for the past several months and will act as a queue map for the main World vs. World maps. Basically the Edge of the Mists will be able to spawn multiple instances of itself so players can still take part in World vs. World while sitting in a queue. It will have a separate scoreboard and teams will be randomized.

“The Aetherblades, dreaded sky pirates of Tyria, have also discovered the “Edge of the Mists.” Minions of Scarlet, the Aetherblades have descended from their airships.  Although their true aims in this virgin territory of Tyria remain unknown, what’s certain is that they’re ready to take on any newcomers,” the developer wrote.

This update will also continue the Living Story, but is described by ArenaNet as the lightest of the final four releases in season one. the Edge of the Mists will be available from February 4.
