Dark Souls 2 American PS3 beta rescheduled following multiple issues

Dark Souls 2 was supposed to be the subject of a PlayStation Network beta test this weekend in North and South America, but it has been rescheduled after server issues kept most eager testers out.

“We thoroughly apologize for all of the confusion and issues. We will be rescheduling the Network Test for another date,” Namco Bandai’s Twitter account announced.

“Everyone who was in this test will be allowed in for the next Dark Souls 2 PS3 Network Test. Your spot is secure.”

The publisher could not provide a date for the rescheduled test, but did note that it should have more information to share in the coming week.

The American test was open to those who’d received an invite and to PlayStation Plus members.

Although some testers – such as me, alas – were unable to access the closed European beta, plenty of others made it in, including Dave – who found it a bit too easy, actually.

Dark Souls 2 is due on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in March.
