This coming October 5, gamers from North America and Europe are in for a punishingly good treat as Namco Bandai is planning to launch a closed beta test for From Software’s Dark Souls II. The closed beta will be available via the Playstation 3’s PSN, and the publisher promised to send gamers to “one of the most treacherous areas of the Dark Souls II world,” which is a scary thought as the franchise is known to be ridiculously difficult even during the tutorial phase.

The new area that will be used for the closed beta test is said to contain the kind of overwhelming enemy encounters that fans expect from the game. Additional information regarding the sign-up will be available on the Dark Souls Facebook page on September 5, so you need to keep an eye out for that.
