Get a bird’s eye view of Guild Wars 2’s new WvW map

    
22

As testing proceeds for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, PvP players will undoubtedly be interested in getting some time in with the brand-new desert borderlands map. This WvW map will replace the old borderlands maps and offer a tighter, more exciting experience.

So do you want to see it? One tester has stitched together a bird’s eye view of the entire map and posted it on Imgur. While you can’t zoom in to see specific details, there’s still a lot to be gleaned from what’s on display here, including the zone’s layout, major landmarks, and paths.

Check out what desert borderlands looks like after the break!

calyptic101 I would say you probably shouldn’t come back if major changes in the combat mechanics and dungeons are what’s needed to fit your play style. They haven’t changed significantly in the past 3 years and I don’t look for them to do so any time soon. That’s not to say that nothing has changed, but it is still dps uber alles.

Nice! I wonder if they’ll rotate the maps as they get more of them?

Akami Esoteric Coyote It is no where near as large.  I’d wager running from top to bottom of this map is the equivalent of running to another keep in ESO.

Akami Esoteric Coyote Just looking at the scale, I can tell you it is in no way the size of Cyrodiil in ESO…..You’d be lucky if it fit 1/4th of Cyrodiil

Is this in response to WoW releasing a birds eye view of Stormwind in VR, or just a random coincidence.

I could never really get into gw2 but now i have a baby a b2p game is better suited to me. As much as i enjoyed roaming around the main problem i had was the dungeon and group mechanics where close to abysmal. Have they said if they will revamp bosses to not be njke fests and have some sort of cc or other ibtresting mechanics beyond more dps.

Has anyone had a chance yet to beta test the gameplay of this new WvW map?

Im curious if this will just end up being the same old WvW gameplay like the other maps after players get over the “ooooooo” and “ahhhhhh” aspect of it being new.
