Fractured, the SpatialOS-based sandbox MMO, has announced its first stress test weekend for Alpha 2.

The test begins on December 6 and will be open for the full weekend for all registered users. This includes anyone who did nor pledge or is without a founder pack. Here are the details:

  • Friday, December 6, at 4pm CET (10am ET) and ending on Monday, December 9, at 12pm CET (6am ET).
  • Testing the following
    • Client patcher – will download be as fast as it is now?
    • Login server – will there be queues?
    • Server workers  – will the processes that simulate the world server-side be able to handle a lot of concurrent users?
    • Game world – will the map get too busy or will it become too hard to find a free plot of land?

If you want, you can register for a Fractured account here, and can grab the client here. Check out the trailer below as well.
