Dark Souls III isn't coming out until next year, but From Software and parent company Bandai Namco are already launching network beta tests to prepare for the game's online component. The tests have been announced for October 16-18 in North America and Japan. It is available through the PlayStation Store but requires an access code granted to a select group who previously signed up.

The rest of us will have to be satisfied with a new batch of screenshots that cover online play. All the familiar features from past Souls games are present, including messages, bloodstains, co-op, and invasion.
