Try, Try Again: Third Dark Souls 2 Beta Test Dated
Getting into the Dark Souls 2 beta on PlayStation 3 is proving even more difficult than the game itself.
Alright, that’s a bit unfair. Officially Namco Bandai and FromSoftware called their second round of beta testing “Network Tests,” and as thousands of frustrated fans discovered over the weekend, Dark Souls 2′s network can’t handle the stress. At least not yet.
So after the failed second round of beta, er, network testing, Namco Bandai will try, try again with round three on November 9.
Posting on the official Dark Souls Facebook page, Namco Bandai revealed the dates and times for the next Dark Souls 2 network tests on PS3:
11:00 PM PST 11/9/13 – 2:00 AM PST 11/10/13
2:00 AM EST 11/10/13 – 5:00 AM EST 11/10/13
Start drinking your coffee and Red Bull now if you’re on the East Coast, you’re going to need it.
Namco Bandai says that everyone that got a key into the first two tests is welcome into the third and also notes there are additional slots remaining. If you want to stay up late and hope the issues have been resolved, you just might be able to get into the next Dark Souls 2 test with this code: 38QQ-8DNE-97AA
