Dark Souls 3 is here to let you test it!
You PS4 people out there will be thrilled to find out that you have the chance to win an early look at Dark Souls 3 by registering for its upcoming network stress test!
You have until the 4th of October (3pm UK time to be exact) to register on their official website and get your application up and running. If you happen to win (more or less the lottery considering how many people are applying), you'll be notified on October 12 or October 13 at, depending on your time zone.
I'm sure it won't be a problem, but supposing you want to apply and you actually win, you really shouldn't have any weekend plans on October 16, seeing as FromSoftware wants you to play hard and take detailed bug notes from 6-9PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. While we're on this subject, you'll also need a PlayStation Plus subscription to participate in North America, but not in Europe.
Seeing as how Dark Souls 3 is set to release in March 2016, people that apply should keep in mind that the game is still in a very much state of active development, in other words the Network Stress Test will really be a test, not some sort of beta you can have loads of fun in (not saying it won't be fun, but probably not as much as you would expect)
The game will become available to people first in Japan on March 24th and then it will head West in April. It's going to be avaialble on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
Footage of the game shows that even though it bears the name of its predecessors, Dark Souls 3 will not as you expect it to be, it feels different enough to justify it's creation, not only that, but the moment you see it, you get that butterfly sensation in your stomach. Let's just take a short look at some of the new stuff:
When performing miracles and spells, the players' magic points are consumed and decreased. In order to refilled these points, they need to consume Ash Estus Flask. There are two different Estus Flasks in the game. One of them can help refill magic points, while another refill hit points. Combat and movements were made faster and more fluid in Dark Souls III. Several players' movements, such as backstepping and swinging heavy weapons, can be performed more rapidly, allowing players to deal more damage in a short period of time.
