ArenaNet Show Off New Ember Bay Map Coming In GW2's Next Update
As with the last Guild Wars 2 update, next week's Rising Flames update adds a new map to Tyria -- though it's also got an old-school taste, being based on a region that was explored in the original Guild Wars.
Game Designer Link Hughes describes Ember Bay as a "hostile, burning wasteland of rock," and, with all its skulls and fire and stone, looking like "the cover of some really insane Tyrian heavy metal album."
On the gameplay side, the area's new Mastery, Thermal Tubes, light you on fire and shoot you across the island when you find an active lava tube. Sounds perfectly safe! Several older elements of the game, such as hearts and karka, return in this update, as well as a "brutal" jumping puzzle, fittingly titled the Chalice of Tears.
Rising Flames goes live on Sept. 20.
