Namco Bandai Games posted a statement in regards to complaints surrounding the multiplayer beta from the Playstation 3 version of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Dark Souls 2.” According to several messages from the company’s Twitter page on Oct. 27, a representative confirmed that North and South American players that were eligible for the play test weren't able to log into the open-world action role-playing game.
As a result, Namco Bandai Games decided to reschedule the multiplayer beta for “Dark Souls 2” to a later date. The company also assured that players who were supposed to be eligible for this round of play tests will have their spot secured. You can find some screenshots of the sequel in the slideshow near the top of this article and the statement from the company below (courtesy of the official Namco Bandai Games Twitter page):
Attention Dark Souls II Testers! It seems that North and South American players will not be able to log into the servers for this test. We thoroughly apologize for all of the confusion and issues. We will be rescheduling the Network Test for another date. Everyone who was in this test will be allowed in for the next Dark Souls II PS3 Network Test. Your spot is secure. We know this is quite disheartening and we thank everyone for their enthusiasm.
The multiplayer beta for “Dark Souls 2” was originally scheduled to being on Oct. 27. However, Namco Bandai Games pulled the public play test suddenly due to connection problems.
Invites for the third beta was revealed through a universal code. Those who were fast enough to redeem the voucher were able to download the client file on the Playstation Store. They will have to wait a little bit longer before they can try out the open-world action-role-playing game due to the unforeseen technical issues.
