ArenaNet has shared a look at a new aspect of Guild Wars 2 called guild missions. "Our team’s primary goal was to create a solid foundation to support PvE guild play," writes content designer Leah Rivera. "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."
Earnable through your guild's tech tree starting on February 26, these missions range in gameplay from platforming to hunting down bounties to finding specific locations on the map within a time limit. Guild missions will give out rewards to individual players as well as Guild Merits that can be put towards further unlocks. I have to say, racing around in a Guild Rush mission as high-speed chickens does look like a good time.
On that note, Guild Wars 2 is currently discounted if you buy directly from the developer. Pricing is $39.99 for the digital edition and $54.99 for the digital deluxe edition.
