Dark Souls 3 stress test registration is live for PS4

Sign up now for a chance to play mid-October.

PS4 owners who want to get an early look at Dark Souls 3 may have an opportunity to do so as registration for its upcoming network stress test is now live.

This is a lottery, however, so signing up doesn't necessarily guarantee that you'll receive access to the early build.

Sign-ups run through 4th October at 3pm UK time.

The actual stress test will run from 16th-18th October and will only be available from 6-9pm GMT those days

"The test involves evaluating the load on game servers, checking the game system and balance, and eliminating any remaining bugs," Namco Bandai explained. "Don't be surprised if you run into bugs and other issues as you play."

For more on how Dark Souls 3 seemingly takes the best bits of Bloodborne and previous Souls games, here's Martin's glowing impressions of From Software's sequel from TGS.

Best of luck getting in!
