Press release
24 September 2013
Update arrives next week
Lionguard intelligence reports have been rife with hints of suspicious activity in Caledon Forest. Someone is mixing up a new kind of trouble from within the Twilight Arbor. Caithe, the sylvari hero, is concerned. She’s in need of brave fighters to help her infiltrate the arbor and set things straight. Will you answer the call?
NCSOFT and ArenaNet today officially unveil Twilight Assault, the next release for Guild Wars 2, scheduled to go live in the game on Tuesday 1st October.

In addition to the main event, the update features a new Level 80 Path in Twilight Arbor. Players can work with each other and Caithe to find a way into a secret, hidden facility where they’ll take on guards, navigate traps, and square off against the monster at the heart of the stronghold.

Also coming is the first season of  World vs. World competition. Starting on Friday 4th October and running to Monday 21st November, players can now work together to determine which world is the best.

But that’s not all; the update also includes new Achievement Rewards, Exotic Nightmare Weapons and Aether Chests.
