Today, Bandai Namco announced via press release that a Dark Souls Remastered network test for PS4 and Xbox One will be held on May 11th and May 12th.

The test will be accessible to everyone for free and will last for three hours on each day from 7 to 10 PM Japan time. The client will be downloadable starting on May 1st, and until May 7th, so you should not wait too long to download it since only those who grab it before the deadline will be able to do play.

The purpose of the test is to verify the load on the game serves, and the correct functioning of the multiplayer gameplay.

We also learn that the size of the client is approximately three gigabytes, so the download isn’t too big.

On top of the announcement, we also get a new full-resolution screenshot, which you can see below.

Dark Souls Remastered will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 25th, 2018, while the Nintendo Switch version has been recently delayed to sometime later this summer. There’s still time to pre-order the game ahead of its release, which you can pick up from Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
