TGS 2015: Dark Souls 3 Release Month, PS4 Test Sessions Announced

With Bloodborne receiving an expansion, it’s only fair that creator From Software had something for its non-PS4 owning fans in the form of Dark Souls 3. The action role-playing game finally has a release month. You can expect it in April 2016. Publisher Bandai Namco revealed this at a press conference at the sidelines of Tokyo Game Show 2015 (TGS 2015).

It also announced that Dark Souls 3 will have its own network test similar to what was done with Bloodborne. During this period, From Software will evaluate the state of the game in multiplayer, check server load, and of course ensure Dark Souls 3 is as balanced as it should be.

Registrations for the test sessions are open from September 18, 5PM CEST (8:30PM IST) to October 4, 5PM CEST. Participants will be selected at random and like most test sessions, slots are limited. You can register for it here. If you’re selected, you will receive an email to confirm the same. Bandai Namco also let slip the schedule for test sessions. They are as follows:

  • 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

Keep in mind that this is just for the PS4 at the moment, not the Xbox One or Windows.
