Namco Bandai has announced they will be doing a Closed Beta Test for Dark Souls II on Playstation 3 in North America and Europe beginning on October 5th. Those that are interested should check out the Dark Souls Facebook page beginning September 5th to find out how to sign up. The game will launch on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC in March 2014 and I’m not sure why Namco Bandai is only doing a Closed Beta on PS3, but whatever the case may be I’m sure some gamers will be happy to have the chance to play it early. Check out an interview with Dark Souls II’s director from this year’s gamescom.
