Fans of Dark Souls may have March 2014 marked down in their calendars as the perfect time to fight against all odds in Dark Souls II, but some lucky PlayStation 3 users will have the chance to tackle that challenge sooner.
A closed beta of Dark Souls II will be available to PS3 owners starting Oct. 5. The beta is set to give gamers the chance to play through one of the game’s most treacherous areas, filled to the brim with overwhelming enemy encounters and diabolical challenges. And since it’s a beta, you can bet that testers will have the extra challenge of facing off against dreaded hard-crashes and software bugs.
For those interested, Namco Bandai recommends following the Dark Souls Facebook page, where more information regarding beta registration will become available come Sept. 5.
