7:48 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story
In advance of the final testing stage for the long-awaited Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, World of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment are inviting the public at large to participate in their "free", week-long open stress test.
The final stress test started yesterday at 1:00PM Pacific Standard Time. Players wanting to check out the game before the open beta need to sign in to gaming website Fileplanet, sign up for the test, and once the client file has been downloaded and installed, start playing. Testers will automatically reserve their place on the open beta by signing up to the stress test. While participation in the stress test itself is free, a paid subscription to Fileplanet is required to download the game client.
