Hurry! Log on for today's Guild Wars 2 stress test!


Starting...right now! You can log on to your Guild Wars 2 account and join the stress test which will be going on for a full four hours. Haven't yet tried the other two unlocked races? Now is your chance.

ArenaNet has had a bunch of stress tests so far for the game, so hopefully this means we have a smooth launch once August 28th rolls around.

Some other news regarding the game launch:

  • Pre-Purchase with 3-Day Headstart: Everyone who pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 will enjoy three full days of Headstart Access. The three-day Headstart Access will officially begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 25th. However, please note that in order to ensure that we’re fully prepared for that fateful hour we may bring servers online up to 3 hours prior. If you’re a player committed to getting in first to grab that character name of your dreams you’ll want to be keeping an eye on things during that time period.
  • Pre-Order with 1-Day Headstart: Those who pre-ordered Guild Wars 2 will be able to participate in one day of Headstart Access. The one-day Headstart Access will begin at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 27th. NOTE – Pre-Order code registration is now enabled.
  • For those players who have not pre-purchased or pre-ordered the game, Guild Wars 2 will officially launch at 0:00 AM Pacific time (GMT -7:00) on August 28th.

If you're not eligible to play, and you need to get your Guild Wars 2 fix, you can watch our writer's, Simon Chun's livestream below.
