Fierce Fight for a Beloved City in Guild Wars 2® Finale

“Battle for Lion’s Arch” promises a final showdown with villain Scarlet Briar


BELLEVUE, WA – March 4, 2014: ArenaNet, developer of the acclaimed Guild Wars franchise, today released the eagerly-awaited finale in its current living world storyline, “Battle for Lion’s Arch.”  In the release, players will engage in a desperate struggle to take back one of the game’s most important cities and a major hub for players.  The city of Lion’s Arch has fallen to a vicious surprise attack from sylvari super villain Scarlet Briar, backed by her army of Tyria’s dark forces and an arsenal of war machines. Her weapons of war include the massive airship drill Breachmaker, which continues to bore deep beneath the city’s harbor. Under the shadow of this mechanical monstrosity, players must now rally to reenter Lion’s Arch to challenge Scarlet’s army, and perhaps face the villain herself.


Scarlet originally worked behind the scenes through fearsome minions such as the Flame Legion and the Nightmare Court. Players soon recognized her as a threat to all of Tyria as she solidified alliances and attained technology, ultimately commanding a total assault that shattered Lion’s Arch. In “Battle for Lion’s Arch,” players now enter the final moments that decide not just the city’s fate but that of all of Tyria, experiencing the epic climax to a storyline that began more than a year ago. 


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.
