Guild Wars 2’s new desert WvW map revealed

    
49

If you weren’t in London for EGX Rezzed and don’t usually devote your Saturdays to watching livestreams, you missed the reveal of Guild Wars 2′s new Desert Borderlands map yesterday. Lucky for you, Dulfy captured the trailer and the entirety of the presentation. The new map will replace the Alpine Borderlands map once Heart of Thorns goes live; the beta for the expansion should be kicking off “shortly” now that Rezzed is over.

Want more GW2 PvP info? Our own Eliot Lefebvre took a stroll through the new Stronghold matches just a few weeks ago.

The Desert Borderlands videos are below.

AdsFi heliaxb I haven’t played in about almost a year and as far as I know, I have missed no significant updates since, only temporary ones. If I’m wrong, feel free to correct me.

Karhima lolwut? I haven’t played GW2 in a while but WvW was my favourite part and I was excited to have TWO WvW maps to play on. Wtf Anet? This is why I don’t play this game that much. They add content and remove it so that after years of being out, the game has the same amount of content. I’m not surprised though, these are the same people who never planned on making an expansion in the first place.

It looks like it has a lot more variety than the other WvW map.

zyrusticae Karhima +1 I didn’t buy a game to have all the features and maps switched out for something new. 

It looks like this is just going to be rotating through, though? that would make a lot more sense than wholesale replacement.

heliaxb It’s B2P.  It’s not like players had to keep paying without updates – there were lots of updates, and no monthly fee.

I’d like to know what they gave US until release… if they don’t want to lose half of their base…

TBPlayer2112 Yangers but only temporarily. I mean how annoying would it be to have the new map for one week and then straight back to the old map? We need the new map for several weeks so people can workout strategies etc before the old map is added back to the rotation.
