Apparently, the map that was available during the actual event was a bit better than what you've posted. An interactive version of it is available here.

If you click on the red "arena" icon in the top left corner, you can see the "travel blurb" for "The Tombs of Drascir." The image featured in that window shows what appears identical to the entrance of the Tomb of the Primeval Kings. It would seem logical that what we today know as "The Tournament" (Heroes' Ascent/Hall of Heroes) was simply moved from Ascalon into the Desert, in order to prevent people from rushing there.

If you click on the "outpost" icon to the right of "The Tombs of Drascir," you'll find "Drascir Mortuary." The landscape depicted in that outpost's image looks like post-Searing Ascalon, and I personally think it resembles something from the Ruins of Surmia mission.

I could be wrong, of course, as I did not play in the E3 event.

Wow...that map is so different. The picture they have for Tombs of Drascir is clearly Tombs of the Primival Kings.
