EU PS Plus Dark Souls II and Destiny of Spirits Betas Incoming
The beta for Dark Souls II will be available to European PS Plus subscribers this Sunday. Starting at 7 a.m. GMT on the 27th, players will get to try and survive in the punishing, brutal world that is Dark Souls II. Here’s more from the official announcement, courtesy of the Playstation Blog:
Developed by From Software, Dark Souls II is the highly anticipated sequel to the punishing 2011 breakout hit Dark Souls. The unique old-school action RPG experience captivated imaginations of gamers worldwide with incredible challenge and intense emotional reward.
Join the dark journey with this beta and experience overwhelming enemy encounters, diabolical hazards, and the unrelenting challenge that only From can deliver.
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.
Also available for beta access is Destiny of Spirits, a free-to-play strategy game for the Playstation Vita:
In Destiny of Spirits on PS Vita, building powerful spirits and working cooperatively with other users will be the key to progress successfully in the game.
The beta servers and gameplay will be available from 6.00am GMT on Thursday 24th October until 6.00am on Friday 1st November.
Dark Souls II is available to pre-load now, and since both games will be removed from the Playstation Network after the servers shutdown, and the betas have a small window, it’s best to get to downloading as soon as possible.
