Guild Wars 2 Flame and Frost dates, WvW and PvP Tournament updates
The Guild Wars 2 Flame and Frost content will be going live on 26 February and new features players can look forward to includes a new PvP map called Spirit Watch, guild missions to encourage coordinated group play, two team rated PvP where two teams of equal rating are pitted against each other, and new daily achievement challenges.
In related news, game designer Tyler Bearce has also released an update on PvP tournaments and how they plan to run those moving forward.
ArenaNet also posted to say that WvW updates are being held off until March.
I wanted to quickly give an update on where we stand with upcoming releases for WvW to help give a sense of where we’re at, and set expectations for the coming months. We’re in the midst of finalizing our February release, which I know had been discussed as a potentially large month for WvW additions.
Because of how broad the WvW game type is, and how large testing for features for this area of the game can be we’re going to hold off on any major WvW updates until March to allow a bit more time to test and polish.
March will see the release of the WuvWuv progression system, new ranks you can earn in WvW visible to all other players, and new DubVDub specific abilities/bonuses that you can earn as you rank up. Our team working on WvW will discuss this system in more detail as that date approaches.
