Guild Wars 2 News - Managing the Many - New Squad UI Debuts

Posted by Suzie Ford on Sep 29, 2015  | Comments

During last weekend's Twitchcon, ArenaNet revealed the first information about the forthcoming Squad UI. Squad UI allows players to manage large groups of players throughout the entire game world. Commanders will be able to harness the power of up to fifty players, further subdivided up to fifteen times.

Commanders can accomplish the following in the Squad UI:

  • drag and drop players into any of the fifteen squads
  • communicate with any, some or all squads simultaneously
  • assess health and location of members
  • in WvW see what is carried by squad members
  • initiate ready-checks
  • assign privileges
  • reassign commander duties to other members with the commander tag
  • form raid squads -- these will be required to enter raids
  • set squad invitations to open or closed

The new Squad UI will be available during the third beta event set for October 2nd.

Read the full presentation on the Guild Wars 2 site. You can also check the Twitchcon wrap report and see what's new for Halloween in the Gem Store.
