Developers to Conduct Second Guild Wars 2 “Stress Test”; Need Assistance from Gamers

June 26, 2012

Guildwars2release.net, the leading online resource for all the latest news on Guild Wars 2, explained that the stress test is a fantastic opportunity for fans of the game to have a second ℠sneak peak´ at how it plays, as the developers are requesting the assistance of gamers.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 27, 2012

ArenaNet, developer of the hit online multiplayer game Guild Wars 2, has announced a second stress test for the up-and-coming MMORPG in order to test the limits of its servers. The stress test will take place on Wednesday, June 27th.

Guildwars2release.net, the leading online resource for all the latest news on Guild Wars 2, explained that the stress test is a fantastic opportunity for fans of the game to have a second ℠sneak peak´ at how it plays, as the developers are requesting the assistance of gamers.

The stress test is ideally timed for European gamers, taking place from 10 am to 2 pm PST on June 27, although for American gamers the timing is not so good.

According to Guildwars2release.net, the developers have not wiped any characters from previous beta tests of the game, so those who took part before will be able to pick up their quest from where they left off last time.

Even so, Guildwars2release.net warn gamers that they shouldn´t get too attached to these characters, as they will almost certainly be deleted when the game is officially launched.

Dan Lim, editor of Guildwars2release.net, explained that the second stress test is taking place not because there are problems with the game´s servers, but simply because the developers want to collect more data.

“ArenaNet have apparently added some new hardware to their servers, as these were overloaded during the first stress test. Everything is expected to run perfectly this time — we believe that this second test is little more than a data collection exercise ahead of the game´s launch, which we expect will be later this year,” explained Dan Lim.

As of yet, there has been no public release date announced for Guild Wars 2. Previously, it was strongly rumored that the game would be released to the public on June 28, although Guildwars2release.net believe that this date is looking extremely unlikely now.

“We expect that the developers will certainly give gamers some advance warning, so it´s looking likely that the official release won´t be until July or possibly even later,” added Dan Lim.
