ArenaNet has released a new update for its free-to-play MMO Guild Wars 2. The update continues the company's efforts to improve PvP in the game -- adding automated tournaments, a visual overhaul to Heart of the Mists, and more.
In addtion to the Heart of the Mists overhaul, ArenaNet has also added a public free-for-all arena and an exclusive VIP area that can only be accessed with a pass. Passes are awarded through tournament and league play.
