Last week the news dropped via Nintendo Direct that FromSoftware is working on a Remaster of Dark Souls. The entertainment company stated that there would be a short beta test to see if the servers were all in check before it lands on May 25. But it’s not only going to be Switch players who are invited to play in advance, as the company announced on Twitter.
The same testing phase will take place on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, meaning that only the PC version is left out. As of right now, we don’t know what content will be included in the Beta or for how long it will run but the message in the tweet asks for as many people as possible to join: “Please, inform your compatriots, we will require the assistance of as many souls as possible”.
Dark Souls: Remastered includes the original game and of the DLC (Artorias of the Abyss) and supports up to 4K resolution and runs at 60 frames-per-second, this according to the official press release.
Dark Souls Remastered releases May 25th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
