Stress Test Weekend Starting

In a surprising turn of events Perfect World announced a Stress Test for RaiderZ during this weekend. All players that have a registered Perfect World account will be able to download the game and play in the next three days. As an incentive for playing a bit longer, all players that reach level 10 will get a special reward once RaiderZ launches. You can download RaiderZ client here, but you have to register an account first on the RaiderZ NA website. Here’s the official news:

As RaiderZ Open Beta draws near, we’re excited to invite everyone to participate in our upcoming stress test to ensure a better launch experience on October 24, 2012. We want you to log in and push our servers to their limits! The monsters are back and stronger than ever so we need your help to make Rendel safe. Starting Friday, October 12, 2012 at 4:00pm (PDT), all players with a registered Perfect World Entertainment account will be able to play RaiderZ until Monday, October 15 at 5:00pm (PDT). Log in, have fun, and slay monsters along with fun in-game events throughout the stress test. Also, all players who reach level 10 or higher during the stress test receive a special reward when RaiderZ Open Beta launches. As an additional reward for players who purchased our Founder’s Pack, you will be able to try out your rare Black Arrod Mount and other items before anyone else during the stress test! Make players jealous as you lead the fight against RaiderZ’s epic Boss Monsters.

UPDATE: There is no region locking. The error we reported earlier was just a bug in the system that Perfect World fixed in the meantime.

UPDATE: The Stress Test seems to be region locked so non-American people will not be able to participate for now.
