Dark Souls 2 beta opens to European PS Plus subscribers Oct. 27

PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe will have access to a worldwide Dark Souls 2 server test on Sunday, Oct. 27, according to a post on PlayStation Blog Europe.

The beta will only be open from 7 - 10 a.m. GMT and is meant to stress test the online servers. Those interested can download the beta now through the Exclusives section on the PlayStation Network to help maximize play time.

Invites for testing in North and South America go out tomorrow at 2 p.m. ET; a universal code will also be posted on Facebook. The first 30,000 people to redeem the code will be able to download the Network Test client. Severs for the test will be online from 2 - 5 a.m. ET on Oct. 27.

Closed beta testing started earlier this month, when players were able to explore one "of the most treacherous areas" in the game.

Dark Souls 2 launches for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC in March 2014. Don't miss our hands-on preview from E3 2013.
