Dark Souls II - Beta Announced

We, like the rest of the world have been excited for Dark Souls II ever since the credits rolled on its predecessor, Dark Souls.

With a game so frustrating and rewarding at once it's no wonder we all got hooked, and so when Dark Souls II was announced back in December last year it was big news here at GameGrin.

We got even more excited at the trailer at E3, analysing it as best we could to grab whatever morsels of information hidden in its depth.

Then, less than a fortnight ago we were treated to another trailer, along with the news that there would be a beta for the game for PlayStation 3 users.

Well now it looks like that beta is a lot sooner than anticipated; with the first round beginning in North America and Europe/Australasia 12th October and the second on 27th October.

Players can register for the beta on the PSN or by visiting the PSN website here.

You can also take a look at all the new screenshots here.

I've still got Demon Souls and Dark Souls sitting unopened in my pile of shame. I really should get cracking on them ASAP!

Haven't even played the first one, do you think it's worth me checking it out? (the first)

No. You don't like games that you die. You die a lot.

Think I have like 300 hours or something equally ridiculous clocked up on the first one. Needless to say, can't wait for this.
