We don't normally cover "online" RPGs, but this one looks interesting, so what the heck. Path of Exile, a promising "competitive online action RPG" in the vein of Diablo currently under development, has announced a Public Stress Test Weekend. Today and tomorrow, you can download the public beta of the game from the official Path of Exile website and try (and test) it out yourself.

Public Stress Test Weekend
The Path of Exile Beta servers will be open to the public for the weekend of March 30-April 1.

What’s the public stress test weekend for?
Primarily, testing to see how the Path of Exile servers run under heavy player load. Our Closed Beta is around the size we need for gameplay feedback, but we need to test to see if we can handle larger number of players in the lead-up to Open Beta.

What are the specific times that I can play?
We will make the servers public at 5pm on Friday (March 30), Pacific Daylight Time. This is 1pm Saturday (March 31) in New Zealand. The public weekend ends at 11:59pm on Sunday (April 1), Pacific Daylight Time. This is 7pm on Monday (April 2) in New Zealand.

I have never signed up for an account at pathofexile.com. Can I still play?
Definitely! An account is required to play but you can create one at any time, even while the event is running. These accounts can be upgraded to Closed Beta accounts after the event if a Beta key is added to them (and of course, they become full game accounts once we enter Open Beta).

What content is available during the weekend?
All of the current Closed Beta content. This includes two acts repeated over four difficulties (about 60 levels worth of content), the Maelstrom of Chaos, Default and Hardcore leagues, five character classes, approximately 55 active skills, 40 support gems and hundreds of types of items.​

Here is the procedure you should follow to take part in the open beta weekend. Register an account here, then download the game client here -- and start playing. Have fun.

To learn more about the game, visit the official website's many subsections or have a look at our own dedicated thread for the game in the General Gaming subforum.
