Diablo III errors got you down? Torchlight II could be your alternative this weekend if Blizzard servers continue to choke under the heavy load of players. Runic Games has announced that Torchlight II will be holding a massive stress test this weekend. The test will begin this Friday and conclude on Tuesday, May 22nd. This will be the last big testing push before the beta ends.

The Beta Weekend will start on Friday, May 18th at 11:00am PDT and go until Tuesday, May 22nd at 11:00am PDT. We will be staggering invitations to let participants know they have been chosen, but you will not be able to play until the start of the Beta Weekend on Friday. This is to help stagger downloading of the game client.

You can sign up for this weekend's event on the Torchlight II website.
