Guild Wars 2 content update Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm arriving Feb. 26

Guild Wars 2 will add its second content update Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm on Feb. 26, according to the game's official website.

As the second installment in the four-part series, it will have a new PvP map called Spirit, a "peaceful green vale, nestled between cliffside shrines," where players can also score bonus points by capturing the Orb of Ascension and running it to shrines. New guild missions include bounties, group puzzles and cross country challenges.

Two teams of equal rating can now fight it out in the new two team PvP mode and the new selectable achievement system allows players to set their own daily goals and rewards.

Guild Wars 2 was released Aug. 28, 2012 for Windows PC and Sep. 18 for Mac.
