As the major commercial hub of Tyria burns to the ground, the Living World Atlas rises and so does a teaser trailer. The stage for the final battle in Guild Wars 2 living story arch: Escape from Lion’s Arch has been set. The fight being taken to the super villain Scarlet Briar, who has besieged Lion’s Arch and has set up an offshore drilling platform.
The teaser trailer shows the destruction of Lion’s Arch in the short time that the event has been live. Since February 14th, the trade capital of the world has been bombarded by all angles and forces of Tyria have responded by saving as many citizens as possible. In the trailer, a phased female voice states, “…the time has come to gather as one, and to take back Lion’s Arch in the name of freedom!”. The battle itself is set to commence March 4th 2014.
In the mean time, players are invited to explore the Living World Atlas. The Atlas is a map of Tyria that guides players through the current and past events of the Living Story. It includes unlockable videos, screenshots, and desktops. The areas of the game can be viewed and a magnifying glass can take you closer so that points of interest can be made visible. These points of interest, once found and clicked, open up the story thus far.
