Dark Souls: Remastered beta announced
A pre-launch network test is planned for the remake
Bandai Namco Entertainment has confirmed that a free network test will be taking place for Dark Souls: Remastered prior to the game’s launch.
The network test will be available for the PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. This free network test will give players the ability to play a part of the game prior to its launch and test the game’s unique online features.

By tapping this amiibo on the Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, the popular “Praise the Sun” gesture can be used (gesture can also be obtained through regular game play). The Solaire of Astora amiibo carries a MSRP of $15.99.
Dark Souls: Remastered will be available May 25, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One, and STEAM for PC for $39.99.
