Playstation 3 owners in North America, Europe and Australia can register for the beta by downloading a ticket from the Playstation Store. The publisher said the beta is closed and only a limited number of tickets will be granted access to the game during the first round of invites Oct. 12.
"Out of the players who have downloaded this registration ticket, players will be chosen and those who qualify will receive notice of how to take part in the Closed Beta testing," reads the description for the ticket.
A second wave of invites will be sent out Oct. 27. Namco Bandai specified whether there will be a beta on the Xbox 360 or PC. From Software has yet to clarify which area the beta will be set in, or how extensive it will be.
"Dark Souls II" is scheduled for release on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in March 2014.
