Dark Souls II - oprainfall

Can’t wait to get your masochistic hands on Dark Souls II? Namco Bandai has got you covered. The publisher will be releasing a closed beta of the game in North America and Europe on October 5th. Dark Souls II promises to match the  franchise’s reputation of being insanely difficult, and there will reportedly be enemy encounters and challenges that will be sure to drive most sane people to punch holes in their walls. According to the official press release:

“The depth of the DARK SOULS II Closed-Beta experience will truly test players’ skill, intestinal fortitude, and their sheer will to survive. DARK SOULS II Closed-Beta will delve into one of the most treacherous areas of the DARK SOULS II world; players will not only get an opportunity to explore an entirely new area of the game, but also experience overwhelming enemy encounters, diabolical challenges, and the unrelenting difficultly that only the developers at FromSoftware can deliver.”

There will be more information about signing up for the Dark Souls II beta on the official Facebook page on September 5th. You can can check it out here for more updates on the game, as well as community contests you can take part in. The game will be available on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in March of next year; however, the beta will only be available via the PlayStation Network on the PS3.
