Dark Souls: Remastered is almost upon us, and Bandai Namco wants players to help them out with a Network Test on May 11 – 12 (next weekend).
The network test version is available to download now for free on the respective Playstation and Microsoft stores (it will be removed from May 9), and comes in at approximately 3 gigabytes for both versions. The testing itself will occur on May 11 – 12, and while the test times appear to be different depending on the region you’re in, Kotaku states that for Australian players it will run between 8pm – 11pm each night (AEST).
Unfortunately for Switch owners, the delayed release of Dark Souls: Remastered on the Switch also means that that their network test has been pushed back on the console, with the official Dark Souls Twitter account stating that the Switch network test will be held separately and announced ‘at the earliest possible opportunity’.
The PS4 and Xbox One network test versions will give everyone the chance to co-op with (and invade!) other players in the Undead Parish locations of the game, and is designed to test the server limit and multiplayer functions of the game prior to its release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 25.
