Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns bringing guild halls; now available for pre-purchase

Here are some of the items your guild hall can have

At the E3 PC Gaming Show tonight, ArenaNet announced that Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thrones is available for pre-purchase. But with a new trailer, most of the announcement revolved around Guild Halls. 

The trailer showed off a ton of things that guilds can do once they claim a guild hall, with a ton of buildings and features ot unlock. You can decorate your hall as you see fit, add customizable rooms that will help your guild in wars, PvP battles and adventuring. 

One room your guild hall can have is a customizable sand box arena (to fight in, of course) that you can decorate, put down traps and turrets, and even change it while people are fighting in it to change things up. There's also a workshop that lets you build weapons that your guild members can then take into the real world. There's also a war room to build tools to go to war against other guilds in World vs. World PvP.
