We reported a couple of days ago on the Japanese release date confirmation of Dark Souls 3 – the game releases in Japan on March 24, 2016. However, unlike what we expected before this, the game is going to release in the west on a later date.
It has been confirmed by Bandai Namco that the action RPG will be released to North America, Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Australasia in April 2016. Although even this is not a specific release date, it does clarify that the western release is being held back for after Japanese launch.
However, stress testing for the game is going to be started much sooner. The areas that Dark Souls 3 will be tested for are game server load evaluation, multiplayer gameplay evaluation and game balance evaluation.
You can register for the stress testing phase between September 18, 2015 at 5:00PM CEST and October 4, 2015 at 5:00PM CEST while the test will be held in following three sessions:
- Friday, October 16, 2015 at 8:00PM to 11:00PM CEST
- Saturday, October 17, 2015 at 8:00PM to 11:00PM CEST
- Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 8:00PM to 11:00PM CEST
While that is all about the new details that were shared, the gameplay footage above is new and you might want to watch it in case you are trying to figure out how much value Dark Souls 3 has inside it.
