The official Dark Souls 2 website has confirmed that beta invites for PlayStation 3 users will be rolled out this week.
Available for North and South America, Europe and the U.K., the beta test will allow developer From Software to monitor a variety of aspects for the upcoming brutal hack-’n-slash sequel, including server load, game balancing and bug fixes.
According to the website, the beta phase will sit 5000 players, and kicks off on October 12. Additional participants will be added into the mix on October 26, with successful entrants receiving access confirmation on October 8.
However, it added that any progress earned in the beta will not make the transition to the final version of Dark Souls 2.
Dark Souls 2 is scheduled for release in March 2014 for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.
