Dark Souls 2 and Destiny of Spirits betas coming to EU PS Plus

Dark Souls fans in Europe can prepare to die a little sooner than anticipated, as a free beta version of Dark Souls 2 will be available for PlayStation Plus subscribers this Sunday.

Publisher Namco Bandai plans to host a server stress test for Dark Souls 2 on October 27, between 7:00 AM and 10:00 AM GMT. Sony recommends players download the beta client beforehand, as the beta will not be playable outside of the three-hour period on Sunday.

PlayStation Vita owners are eligible for another beta test taking place this week, as a pre-release version of Q Entertainment's monster-collecting RPG Destiny of Spirits will be available from October 24 through November 1 for PlayStation Plus members.

The beta version of Destiny of Spirits will be open to players worldwide. A North American beta test for Dark Souls 2 has not been announced.
