Guild Wars® 2 Gives a Glimpse into the “Edge of the Mists”

New teaser trailer for the game’s next living world release shows off atmospheric new map & continuation of Scarlet storyline

BRIGHTON, UK. – January 28, 2014: NCSOFT and ArenaNet, developer of the acclaimed Guild Wars franchise, today released a video trailer that introduces players to the “Edge of the Mists”, a brand-new realm that has remained undiscovered, and until now untainted by the evil machinations of arch-villain Scarlet Briar.

In the eerie “Edge of the Mists” preview video, the camera glides over the complex of floating islands that make up this new map, revealing the variety of terrain and landscapes players will encounter with the next release arriving Tuesday 4 th February. Dense cloud forests, icy mountains and crumbling temples provide players with a challenging new terrain to battle over.  As the video reveals, the players won’t be the only ones battling for control of this new realm.

The Aetherblades; dreaded sky pirates of Tyria; have also discovered the “Edge of the Mists”. Minions of Scarlet, the Aetherblades have descended from their airships.  Although their true aims in this virgin territory of Tyria remain unknown, what’s certain is that they’re ready to take on any newcomers.

Guild Wars® 2 is a visually stunning MMO that offers players the epic grandeur of a massive role playing environment combined with innovative combat mechanics, dynamic events, and customized personal storytelling.  Building on the success of Guild Wars, NCSOFT and game developer ArenaNet™ have created an MMO that lets gamers play the way they want, while at the same time retaining the no-subscription-fee business model that made the original Guild Wars so popular.
