Not wanting to have you wait until next year before you can experience an extremely difficult time with Dark Souls 2, Namco Bandai has announced that they will be holding a Closed Beta starting on October 5th in North America and Europe on PlayStation 3 (no word on other platforms).

There’s no real details on how you’ll be able to join the Closed Beta right now, just that you’ll have to pay very close attention to the Dark Souls Facebook Page starting on September 5th for “continual Dark Souls 2 news and updates regarding the registration process and details pertaining to the Dark Souls 2 Closed Beta.”

Here’s the official description for the Beta:

The depth of the Dark Souls 2 Closed-Beta experience will truly test players’ skill, intestinal fortitude, and their sheer will to survive. The Dark Souls 2 Closed-Beta will delve into one of the most treacherous areas of the Dark Souls 2 world; players will not only get an opportunity to explore an entirely new area of the game, but also experience overwhelming enemy encounters, diabolical challenges, and the unrelenting difficultly that only the developers at FromSoftware can deliver.

Dark Souls 2 releases in March 2014 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
