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.

ArenaNet has updated the Guild Wars 2 beta client with close to 10,000 files added or changed. Additions include a FPS counter, updated maps, and an update to PvP arenas Raid of the Capricorn and Legacy of the Foefire, and the PvE area Sorror’s Ambrace. An unknown area which could possibly be the Hall of Memories or an extension of Orr was also added. The last beta test was held weekend before last, and as PCgamesN notes, it’s not likely another test will roll out unless its a short stress test; likely, it’s so players will have less to download when the game launches at the end of August. It makes sense, as it would also reduce the load on the game servers at launch. We’ll keep an eye on this for you just in case. Via Reddit.

Guild wars 2 could launch on June 28 if a pre-order promotional flyer posted by a Fry’s retailer in Texas is any indication. Kotaku, which obtained a shot of the flyer, contacted NCsoft on the matter which responded: “We have not released an official launch date within 2012 as feedback from our closed and open marketing betas will help us determine an exact release date. We will release Guild Wars 2 when it is ready.” Earlier this month GameSpot put up a placeholder date of June 26 for the MMO, which is currently still in beta. Neither NCsoft nor ArenNet have announced a concrete date for the anticipated title, but has previously confirmed it will be released sometime this year.

The standard and deluxe digital editions of Guild Wars 2 on the official store have sold out in North America, according to a statement posted on the game’s Facebook page. GameStop and Best Buy still have stock available. Those who purchased the game digitally were ensured a spot in the beta, which starts this weekend. NCsoft put a cap on the amount of digital versions available, it said, in order to “ensure we have enough capacity for our customers.” All is not lost though, baby Charr, the company further stated that ArenaNet will “likely have capacity available after the initial crunch at the start of the weekend,” and once the firm is able to resume digital sales, those who purchase the game will “still be able to play for the remainder of the weekend.”
