Guild Wars 2 Escape from Lion's Arch Update Launched, Screens Released

Super villain Scarlet’s forces besiege historic city, threatening a critical trading hub for players, in Escape from Lion's Arch
Unveiling these screenshots, NCSOFT and ArenaNet announced that Escape from Lion's Arch, the latest content update for Guild Wars 2, is now live. For the past year, players have battled Scarlet's minions, foiled her schemes, and discovered more about her sinister goals. Now, after months of planning, Scarlet's attack on Lion’s Arch sets the stage for a final ruthless push in her still mysterious grand plan.
In Escape from Lion’s Arch, players battle alongside the Lionguard to take on Scarlet's dark allies and evacuate as many citizens from the city as possible. They will face ferocious challenges as her minions roam freely through the besieged city and in the waters of the harbour. To protect the innocent, players will have to battle everything from the brutal charr of the Flame Legion and the towering clockwork watchknights to vicious creatures such as the krait and the feared Aetherblade sky pirates.
