Guild Wars 2 gears up for yet another stress test


And you thought you weren't going to get to play Guild Wars 2 until this weekend!

ArenaNet has just announced one more round of stress testing prior to the prepurchase launch. On Tuesday, August 21st, from 3 p.m. EDT (noon PDT) to 7 p.m. EDT (4 p.m. PDT), players who have prepurchased (not just preordered) the game will be able to log in and beat up on the Guild Wars 2 servers in the hopes of helping ANet make them nice and shiny for the real deal come Friday. You'll be able to access your existing beta characters, but the team reminds everyone that it is "actively working on the game during the event, so you might experience connectivity problems or discover features that are not working as designed."

While you wait for Tuesday, why not check out the official launch schedule, region clarifications, and gem store items revealed today?
