Bandai Namco has announced when PS4 and Xbox One owners in the Americas can participate in the Dark Souls: Remastered Network Test.

Specific times for the Americas and Europe are listed below, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The network test will take place within the Undead Parish location and have players summoning co-op partners or invading others’ games.

It is now available for pre-load on both consoles. Here’s when you can get stuck in:

Participants should expect connection issues to be a possibility, because it’s a stress test. It’s worth noting that, because of this, player data during the test will not carry over to the full game, which is standard for this kind of thing anyway.

Dark Souls: Remastered will be released on May 25 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game along with the Network Test will be available this summer.
