From Software announced that it will host a network stress test for Dark Souls Remastered so that players can try out the game earlier as testers of a large-scale network ahead of its official launch.
Since it’s a test that will go into the network quality improvement before its full release, it will be available for free on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version will also get a network test, and its schedule will be announced on a later date.
The network test will be available in two sessions:
- May 11 – 7:00pm – 10:00pm JST
- May 12 – 7:00pm – 10:00pm JST
Dark Souls Remastered releases on May 25, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Nintendo Switch version releases in Summer 2018.
