Earlier this week we discovered that the next online beta test session for Dark Souls II would take place on October 27th, between 7am GMT and 10am GMT. The beta will be open only to those who took part in the previous beta test, while 30 000 additional players will be able to get into the action on a first come, first served basis.
More recently, it was announced that European PlayStation Plus members will also be able to join the beta next week in order to “stress test the online servers.” The European PlayStation Blog says that the beta will be available to download ahead of time, and can be found in the ‘Exclusives’ section of the PlayStation Store.
“We recommend that you download the beta ahead of the server opening to maximise your gameplay time,” writes the PS Blog, “as the Dark Souls II beta is not playable outside of the above server test times.”
Are you prepared to go beyond death on October 27th?
