Continuing with their fortnightly updates, ArenaNet has unveiled the newest addition to their expansive MMO in the form of a political campaign. Titled Cutthroat Politics, the new update will see player given a choice between two campaigners after a recent assassination created a vacancy on the Captain’s Council of Lion’s Arch.
An assassination has created a vacancy on the Captain’s Council of Lion’s Arch. Two candidates —war hero Ellen Kiel and prominent merchant Evon Gnashblade —both want to occupy that empty seat, but they can’t do it without your support!

To prove they have what it takes to sit on the powerful ruling council, Kiel and Gnashblade will compete to secure a lucrative trade agreement with the merchants of the Zephyr Sanctum. Support your favorite candidate as you experience two weeks of new events, activities, features and rewards.
New events will also be taking place alongside the campaign, including the Southsun Survival which will have players armed with only a bow and what little supplies they can scavenge as they face off other players in a battle to be the last one standing.

A new PvP arena will also be making a debut in the update, titled Aspect Arena and will offer a slightly different style of play. Those participating in the arena will be able to utilise one of the three Aspects and in doing so gain new abilities tied to that Aspect. Players will then face off in teams to collect crystals and earn themselves karma and coins for each round you play, plus a rare chance at an exclusive Back Item.

If the choice of candidacy is a difficult one for you, then check out each of the two candidates campaign videos below to see just what they have to offer for you and the world of Tyria. For full details on the Cutthroat Politics update check out the official page.
