Arena.Net has released new information about Embark Beach, a location in the Battle Isles that is a 'jump off' point for players to head to any location in Guild Wars (if purchased). In addition, players can now adventure with up to seven mercenary heroes. The cool part is that these heroes can be any level 20 character from a player's account.
