So here’s a new one for Guild Wars 2: The game’s getting a “competitive” feature pack patch in June. The blog post was tweeted out earlier today by ArenaNet, and it’s short but sweet, with content and fixes for PvP of all styles:
World vs. World—June 6: Updates to World vs. World will include improved LFG, new rewards, and skirmishing updates! We’re making sure skirmishing in WvW is fun and rewarding with an updated UI and new rewards. Keep an eye on the blog and release highlights in the next few days for more information.
PvP League Season 7—June 13: PvP League returns on June 13. Sharpen your blades, and get ready to rock!
PvP—June 20: Automated tournaments are the future of competitive PvP in Guild Wars 2, and will let you compete in three daily tournaments for a chance to qualify for a monthly tournament and earn prestigious rewards! Structured PvP will also be updated with a custom arena map for 2v2 battles and a new and improved PvP lobby to hang out in.”
It’s surely good news for PvP players who’ve been wondering about the state of the scene following the apparent demise of GW2’s e-sports program earlier this year.
