Almost a week ago, developer ArenaNet and publisher NCsoft revealed the fourth and final installment of Guild War 2′s Flame and Frost event, called Retribution. As promised then, Retribution has kept true to its release date and has gone live.
Flame and Frost: Retribution will feature a new dungeon, new world vs world abilities, new guild missions and a chance to take part in invite-only beta versions of custom arenas and spectator mode. A lot of narrative threads will also be tied up but not all, leaving behind the assumption that the developers have something more in mind.
In Retribution, players will have to attack a newly created foundry of the Molten Alliance located under the Shiverpeaks. The secret forge is creating dangerous weapons and poses a great threat to Tyria.
This update finally concludes the ‘living story’ Flame & Frost event which has been unfolding for quite some months.

As a small reminder, note that ArenaNet has changed the WvW restart time for NA and EU servers. NA servers will now reset on Friday at 6:00 PM PDT and EU servers will reset at 18:00 UTC.
