This announcement regarding Guild Wars 2 goes out to all gamers who have pre purchased Guild Wars 2. ArenaNet, the developers of the game, have decided to open their beta servers to you on Wednesday, June 27 to take part in a stress test of the servers.

The company stated that they are happy with how the servers performed during the Guild Wars 2 Beta weekend event that just took place a couple weeks ago. ArenaNet is now opening it “to gather additional data on how their servers will operate under heavy load before the next beta event.”

That quote tells us one thing – that Guild Wars 2 will definitively be having one more beta weekend that has not been given a set date yet. So those of you that thought they game was close to being released will have to try and guess again. Another thing to take note of is the time of this stress test. It is in the middle of the week (on a Wednesday) from 10 am to 2pm which is the time that most of us are at work. We get the feeling that this stress test was not intended for American players but probably intended more for EU players. Fortunately, Gaming Illustrated will be able to participate and play as much as we can, reporting back in that night with impressions of how the stress test went. Guild Wars 2 beta characters still have not been wiped from the first two beta weekends, so if you are one of the lucky ones who have played the previous two weekends then your character will still be there for the stress test.

While patience is wearing thin with all these beta weekends and server tests with no release date we’re actually inclined to think it’s a good thing. Most gamers would rather have 20 beta weekends and random 4 hour server stress tests to know everything will work on the release date then to have one weekend where the stress was too much for a game, grinding any opening momentum to a halt. We can safely say that most people would much rather have these issues crop up on a stress test or beta weekend. Let’s just hope that all these beta weekends and stress tests are actually helping ArenaNet to make a better game. In the mean time, like folks that have been invited to participate in the beta, we’ll enjoy what time we have in the game.

Stay tuned to Gaming Illustrated for the latest on Guild Wars 2.
