ArenaNet sent over a press release announcing the launch of Out of the Shadows, the latest installment to the ongoing Guild Wars 2 saga - Living World Season 3. Episode 1 of Living World Season 3 sees the land of Tyria licking its wounds after the epic battle to defeat the Elder Dragon Mordremoth. With the dragon's reign of terror at an end, players gather with their friends to mourn the loss of fallen comrades. All is not as it seems, though, and the players are soon alerted to an emerging threat they must investigate. What's the cause of the mysterious happenings in the jungles of Maguuma? Has the death of Mordremoth awoken a new threat?
In addition, ArenaNet is adding to both its Player vs. Player and Fractal sections of the game. In the new PvP Conquest Map, Revenge of the Capricorn, players will fight for control of a faction-divided seaside town and attempt to thwart the formidable pirate ship the Capricorn and its marauding crew. In the new Fractal, Chaos Isles, boundaries between fractals have fallen, and realities within the Mists have begun to collide, causing adverse effects on the environment and its inhabitants. In the course of the player's foray into the unstable madness, players will be introduced to the Mysterious Asura, a curious and unknown entity who seems to have some amount of control over the recent chaos.
