Guild Wars 2 gets a new PvP map

Spirit Watch is the latest addition to the Guild Wars 2 PvP universe.

Guild Wars 2 will receive a new PvP map called Spirit Watch in its upcoming patch. The map’s aim is to focus on intense Capture-The-Flag gameplay whilst still providing the Guild Wars community with PvP they know and love. However, this will not be a normal CTF gamemode. Instead, they will be fighting over a glowing Orb of Ascension.

Players will have to go to the center of the map and fight their way to the Orb. Once the Orb has been collected, the carrier needs to get it to one of three capture locations scattered around the map. Unfortunately, the carrier will have a 40% movement speed penalty. Ouch.

To do the map justice, ArenaNet have created a video overview, showing the map in all of its glory.
