The official Facebook page for Dark Souls had a post that will probably interest anyone wanting to play Dark Souls 2. If you have a PlayStation 3, you can register today for the Dark Souls 2 beta.
The first beta for North America, Europe and Australia begins on October 12, and the second beta begins on October 27. To sign up for the beta, go to the PlayStation Network website or on PSN on your PlayStation 3 and register to receive a ticket to access the beta.
Dark Souls 2 launches in March 2014 on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
