During Gamescom this week, ArenaNet announced that it will be starting a competitive tournament for Guild Wars 2. The World Tournament Series will take place in North America, Europe and China and players will compete for a $150,000 prize pool. In addition, the next Feature Pack will be focused on PvP in game.
ArenaNet’s World Tournament Series represents the first worldwide event-based competition for the game. The first championship is set for late fall of 2014 in Beijing. Competitors will be chosen from top qualifying players in the upcoming Tournament of Glory launching on August 20. More information on the World Tournament Series structure and the Beijing event will be released in the coming weeks.
Outside of sanctioned battle arenas, fans of PvP and WvW are about to get serious upgrades in the September 2014 Feature Pack, which will be available to all players free of charge on September 9. While ArenaNet is unveiling competitive upgrades at gamescom, the Feature Pack contains much more than just new competitive features.
