One of the most anticipated games of the year is almost ready to roll. Blizzard has announced a final stress test starting today that will lead into an open beta next week. The stress test is only available to fileplanet subscribers, but the open beta will be available to anyone who wants to download it and play it. There is no word yet on whether you will be able to keep your stress/open beta characters upon release. My guess is that they will base that upon whether any significant changes are made during the final weeks before release. I have played this game extensively and highly recommend it to you. Even in beta, it quickly became on of my all time favorites. It's certainly worth checking out during the free open beta. For more information, head to our World of Warcraft Site. We cover just about everything you need to know about the game. Or ask questions of the testers in our WoW Forum. And of course, purchasing it through EBgames.com gets you a free 30 day premium trial membership (or if you are already a premium member, use your code for 10% off).
