Bandai Namco has announced that Dark Souls 3 will have its own network test. Developer From Software is looking to test out game balance, evaluate the state of multiplayer games, as well as test server load – similar to how they did with Bloodborne.

You can register for the test through here starting tomorrow, September 18 at 5pm CEST. It’s only available on PlayStation 4 and you have until October 4 at 5pm CEST to do so.

Namco will select participants randomly. Do note however that slots are limited.

Here are the planned test sessions:

  • Friday, October 16th, 2015 at 8:00pm to 11:00pm CEST
  • Saturday, October 17th, 2015 at 8:00pm to 11:00pm CEST
  • Sunday, October 18th, 2015 at 8:00pm to 11:00pm CEST

You’re only going to get an email if you’re selected.
