Guild Wars 2 stress test brings changes to Engineer class

Friday, 3rd August 2012 15:31 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

During yesterday’s Guild Wars 2 stress test, changes to the Engineer were implemented, providing the character with a new set Turret abilities. Each one provides a “quick fire” ability for when your turret isn’t up. Rocket Turret, for example, is an AoE which fires off a Rocket that explodes on impact, while the Rifle Turret shoots a bullet from the toolbelt. There’s more, of course, and it’s all posted over on GW Guru. Thanks, PCgamesN. Games’ out August 28.

    Is this game going to be on Steam? I haven’t seen it for sale yet. I know I have seen it on gamestop, but sure as hell not buying it from them.

    Digital is only on the GW2 website but Amazon and a few other sites had some decent half price deals but be quick!

    It’ll probably arrive on Steam at some point, considering the first one + expansions are there.

    I wouldn’t recommend buying from their own store to be honest. Service is fine enough but the price is high.

    If you’re willing to miss the early access and bonuses, give it a few days or so after launch and you’ll probably see it priced competitively at a few places. For digital that is.

    I know it prolly comes across as elitest or fanboy or something. But if it ain’t on Steam…I am gun shy. Put your damn game on Steam and I will buy it right away. I do not want to contribute to having a PC where I need 35 different store fronts for my games. I just want Steam.

    Hoping this pops up on Steam soon.

    @6 There’s no external storefront for GW2, unless NCSoft decides otherwise.

    Anyways, IF and WHEN you’ll want to purchase gems with real money, there’s an ingame storefront.

    @6 – Neo is right. Theres no software to install for ncsoft. Its just like buying a game direct from Steam. You select game, checkout, entire card details – download.

    Had it been otherwise, then I probably wouldnt have made the purchase either. But dont miss out OG – especially if you like some PvP. WvW action – its just SO much fun.

    Its £50 from Arena themselves but Green Man Gaming have got it for cheap:

    I wish I waited and bought it for this price instead of £50, as I feel like the game wasn’t worth that much.

    Guild Wars 1 is on Steam, so that shows they have some sort of partnership with Valve. I’d be surprised if 2 didn’t.

    In regards to the article… this makes me very happy. I play a charr engineer as my main (of course), and they just keep getting more and more bizarre and crazy. They’re the anti-thesis of the standard MMORPG profession and it pleases me tremendously.

    Arenanet already said no GW2 will not be on Steam because valve changed their business practices.
