You may want to read this one twice.
When From Software and Namco Bandai revealed that they would be conducting a beta network test for Dark Souls 2 they were pretty clear on how to participate if you live in Europe. North Americans, however, may need to do a bit of reading to figure out how they can participate.
After causing a lot of confusion with their first announcement, From Software have tried to clear up some details about how North American PS3 users can participate in the Dark Sousl 2 beta network test. Here is the latest:
-There is no registration process!
-Select users will receive a PSN message on Tuesday Oct 8th with a code to redeem the download for the Oct 12th testing round.
-Only 5,000 players will be allowed in this round on a first-come, first-served basis.
-Many more players will have an opportunity to get into the second round of testing.
-We will share a universal download code on Oct 22nd that can be redeemed to download the client for the Oct 26th testing round.
-30,000 testers will be allowed in for the Oct 26th round, but on a first-come, first-served basis.
So, it looks like you’re going to have to be quick on the draw to get involved, or even lucky.
