Darksouls2 fire

Those who loved Dark Souls are a little desperate to get their hands on Dark Souls II. The amount of videos searching for any details about what might be in the game is staggering. But now, PS+ subscribers can get their hands on the beta this weekend. Well, sort of.

Announced on the EU Playstation Blog, the Dark Souls II Beta will be live for European PlayStation Plus subscribers on Sunday, 27 October. However, the game will only be live from 7am to 10am GMT – this isn’t about giving people a long time with the beta. Rather:

The goal of the Dark Souls II Beta is to stress test the online servers. To help achieve this, Namco Bandai are coordinating a worldwide server test which will be available for a very limited time.

You can download the beta in advance from the “exclusives” section of the PlayStation Plus store to maximize your in-game time with the game. Although, considering this is a server test, it’s best that you steel yourself for some Error 37 hell. It is a Beta test after all – you are given the privilege of early access in exchange for a bit of suffering. Maybe a lot of suffering. Besides, you must be a glutton for punishment if you enjoyed Dark Souls. This game is hard, and getting onto the server will be too. But oh, isn’t it worth it in the end?

In case you still haven’t seen it, check out the announcement trailer for Dark Souls II.

        Well that would normally be the response if she had asked… “Is it in yet?”

      You say it’s ready, you think it’s ready, you believe it’s ready, but you know deep down you’ll never be ready.

    Pretty awesome but I’ll wait for the official release. Too much bad taste in the mouth from recent beta’s.
