Late yesterday, the technical beta for Dark Souls 3 was made available for North American PlayStation Plus members to download. Hopefully, you grabbed it, because it’s been pulled.
Apparently, the files needed for access to the upcoming network test were made available too soon.
Those that lucked out and downloaded it before hand should pretty much be good to go come October 16 when the beta goes live.
If you signed up for the beta, and weren’t one of the lucky PS Plus members to have nabbed the files, you will know if you have been chosen to participate come October 13. If chosen at random, you will be sent a key and can download the files needed.
From Software is using the test to evaluate balance, the multiplayer portion and server load.
Planned test sessions start on October 16 and will end on October 18 at 11.00pm CEST. You an look over the entire schedule through the official website.
Dark Souls 3 will be released in April 2016.
