ArenaNet announced Guild Wars 2 Stress Test Event on June 27th

ArenaNet have announced a four hour stress test of Guild Wars 2, running from 7pm to 11pm CEST (6pm-10pm BST/1pm-5pm EDT) on Wednesday 27th of June. If you’ve previously taken part in one of the game’s beta weekends, then all you’ll need to do is update the client and log in.

Although to be honest perhaps opening up the stress test to everyone would be a better test, but we guess one step at a time, right? They also stated that they will not be wiping characters from the previous beta weekends, so gamers should be able to pick up where they left off with their current beta toons. However it should be noted that stress tests usually aren’t a fun experience for gamers as it could involve a lot of latency issues, disconnections and errors (think Diablo 3’s stress test weekend), so don’t expect too much this coming Wednesday.

If you’re already a part of the weekend tests, you can simply update your client and log in at the time to join the stress test. The stress test will not be replacing the weekend sessions they have planned leading up to Guild Wars 2‘s release later this year.
