Guild Wars 2 Battle for Lion's Arch Update Launched, Screens Released

Battle for Lion's Arch promises a final showdown with villain Scarlet Briar
NCSOFT and ArenaNet announced that Battle for Lion's Arch, the latest content update for Guild Wars 2, is now live. In the release, players will engage in a desperate struggle to take back one of the game's most important cities and a major hub for players. The city of Lion's Arch has fallen to a vicious surprise attack from sylvari super villain Scarlet Briar, backed by her army of Tyria's dark forces and an arsenal of war machines. Her weapons of war include the massive airship drill Breachmaker, which continues to bore deep beneath the city's harbour.
Under the shadow of this mechanical monstrosity, players must now rally to re-enter Lion's Arch to challenge Scarlet's army, and perhaps face the villain herself.
Update: fifteen fresh screenshots found their way in our gallery.
