Guild Wars 2 ‘Guild Missions’ System Detailed
Last week, ArenaNet revealed that its monthly update would see the addition of guild missions into Guild Wars 2, making good on the game’s title. The update, which is set to go live on February 26, will also include new content relating to its “Living Story” campaign, a new PvP map, and extensive improvements to the game’s daily achievement system.
Writing on the game’s official site, Leah Rivera writes: “Our team’s primary goal was to create a solid foundation to support PvE guild play. We wanted to create a feature that provided guild members with fun things to do together now, and could be expanded to support new styles of content in the future. To do that, we’ve created a system with three key features: guild missions, guild merits and an expanded unlock system.”
“Guild missions are a new, unlockable, gameplay type that your guild can earn through the guild tech tree. These missions are all aimed at group, coordinated play, so kicking off a mission without anyone around to help you isn’t advisable.”
In other words, players will be given an incentive to be a part of guilds instead of playing the game alone as they normally do.
