Namco Bandai has not only sent over a bunch of hardcore fighty new screens for Dark Souls II but also details of the Beta.
The game, developed by FROM Software, is not for the weak of button finger nor for the gamer who requires easy progress. It's incredibly bloody fighty in fact.
The first Beta round for North America and Europe/Australasia will begin on 12th October and the second round will begin on 27th October. Register for the Beta here.
Or get on the PlayStation Network to register and receive a ticket to access the BETA.Check out all the new screens here too.
