ArenaNet's final Living Content story arc for their popular buy-to-play MMO Guild Wars 2 is now upon its citizens, bringing the past year of consistent updates to an end with a battle in the now-destroyed Lion's Arch.
Scarlet’s armies have razed Lion’s Arch and occupy the smoldering husk of the proud port city – but she has not won yet! With the noxious miasma dissipating, heroes and friends of Lion’s Arch can mount an assault to re-take the city and fight Scarlet herself. Free the city and put a stop to Scarlet’s machinations!
Lion’s Arch is crawling with Scarlet’s foot soldiers, and her champions are eager to defeat all would-be liberators. You’ll find yourself face-to-face with Scarlet’s most deadly champions: the Aetherblade Admiral, Toxic Spider Queen, Molten Shaman, and more. Worse things await you – beware the giant Assault Knights who guard the only way up to Scarlet’s airship!
As with the past content updates, you'll be tasked with completing a handful of new events to help stop the evil workings of Scarlet Briar, including stopping the villain herself by reaching her personal airship, the Breachmaker. Players will also have a chance to find one of two exotic rifle skins based on Scarlet's own weapon by killing enemies in Lion's Arch, but also power cores to upgrade your Tempered Spinal Blades.
Other content features include Scarlet's Champion Mini 3-Pack, the return of Tormented Weapons from the original Guild Wars, a Guild Shield finisher and of course a handful of other Gem Store items which you can find out on the official splash page
. ArenaNet also revealed that come March 18th, a small release will be available that will provide an epilogue to the recent events. That release will show the aftermath of what players experience in the Battle for Lion’s Arch and will conclude the current story arc.
Battle for Lion's Arch is now available in-game, with players having to simply update their client to gain access.
