Players Soar to New Heights in Major New Update for Guild Wars® 2 and Guild Wars 2: Heart of ThornsTM

ArenaNet, publisher and developer of the award-winning Guild Wars franchise, today released new features and content available to all players in Guild Wars 2, including a new addition sure to have  Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns players leaping for joy from the highest vistas in Tyria. The Winter 2016 Update, free for all players and available starting today, marks the first major update to  Guild Wars 2 since the expansion launched in October. One of the biggest features is the ability for Heart of Thorns players to deploy their gliders throughout central Tyria, allowing them to explore their favourite locations in a completely new way.

All players can also look forward to taking on the new and improved Shatterer, a five-story dragon encounter that has been revamped. Fan favourite Tylbalt Leftpaw can be summoned as a Mist Champion in PvP, and all players can celebrate the start of the Lunar New Year, and more.
