ArenaNet has shared more details into what’s new for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns.
First off are the new area in Maguuma, a dense, lush jungle fraught with dangers, especially when the Mordrem come in. ArenaNet promises more denseness in content rather than more blank space to roam around in.
There are also two new gameplay systems, outposts, and adventures. If events are like trophies or achievements in other games, adventures are like challenges. There are preset conditions to achieving adventures and you get scored for them.
Outposts are major vantage points in the game map, which will simultaneously help prepare you for major battles, level you up, and continue to be relevant after said battles.
You can read the nitty gritty on all of this here, and check out a trailer showing off Meguuma below.
