ArenaNet has announced that the latest Guild Wars 2 update, Edge of Mists, is now live across servers. Edge of Mists brings a significant overhaul to the World vs World system, as well as what the team is calling a "shocking revelation" about Scarlet Briar and her nefarious plans for Tyria.
The introduction of the “Edge of the Mists” is also giving players a new way to experience the game’s popular WvW mode. In WvW, armies of players engage in PvP on an epic scale, competing to seize territory, lay siege to castles, raid enemy supplies, and spread mayhem on four vast maps in the Mists. Now, players will never again have to wait to participate in WvW. “Edge of the Mists” acts as an overflow map that gives them the option to continue playing in a PvP and PvE environment, with different zones that compose the map’s network of floating islands inhabited by creatures such as the kodan, ogres, and grawl. Players continue to build rank and gain loot and achievements while still in queue to join regular WvW matches. There’s also a new UI system in place that provides complete visibility on which maps are populated and anticipated queue times.
