You can play Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch this weekend

Parish the thought.

Dark Souls: Remastered is finally getting its Nintendo Switch network test this weekend, which means you can try the game for free over the next few evenings.

Servers will be live between 6-10pm UK time on Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd.

As detailed on the Nintendo Switch eShop, the test will allow you to explore the area of Undead Parish - both in single-player and with multiplayer features.

It's worth noting, however, that any progress you make will not be carried over to the full version of Dark Souls: Remastered, which launches on 19th October.

You can also try Dark Souls: Remastered on Nintendo Switch at EGX - the games show run by Eurogamer's parent company Gamer Network - this weekend, although this is unrelated to the network test.
