If you’re keen to get some hands-on time with Dark Souls II months before it releases next March then be sure to sign up for the game’s closed beta on PS3 which gets underway next month.
To sign up for the beta you simply need to visit the PlayStation Web Store and look under the New Releases section where you’ll find an item called “Dark Souls II Closed Beta – Registration Ticket”. Add the item to your basket and then check out, and you’ll be signed up. The registration ticket has not yet appeared on the US PlayStation Store but I found it on the UK and South African storefronts. Here’s the direct link if you’re having trouble locating it.
According to Namco Bandai, the first round of closed beta testing for North America and Europe/Australasia will begin on October 12th and the second round will begin on October 27th. The publisher hasn’t confirmed whether the beta will be extended to Xbox 360 and PC players as well.
Dark Souls II will be released next March for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of the latest entry in this much-loved series.
