Guild Wars 2 news? Well, ArenaNet has just announced that it will be conducting a stress test toward the middle of next week. Specifically, you're invited to try to crash the servers on Wednesday, June 27th, from 1:00 p.m. EDT to 5:00 p.m. EDT.
The invitation is restricted to players who have pre-purchased the game, and ArenaNet says that it wants "to gather additional data on how [the servers] operate under load" before the next beta weekend event. If you've played during a previous testing phase, your characters will be waiting for you since the devs aren't wiping data for the stress test. More info is yours for the reading at the official GW2 website.
