In a rather lengthy blog post ArenaNet and NCSoft have detailed a new PvP mode coming up in Guild Wars 2’s forthcoming expansion ‘Heart of Thorns.’
Teams of players will battle it out for resources and NPC soldiers in an effort to tear down the gates of their enemy’s Strongholds and kill their ‘Lords’.
The NPCs themselves will have very specific uses, and aside from Hero units will rarely engage in direct player combat.
Check out the blog link above as there’s a silly amount of information in there about this.
At 1pm PST this Friday 20, there’ll be a Twitch stream as Josh Davies and Hugh Norfolk talk through a Stronghold Match.
Be sure to tune in.
