Dark Souls: Remastered network test and amiibo revealed

9 March 2018 – by Jack Taylor

Dark Souls: Remastered will receive a pre-launch network test, as well as the Solaire of Astora amiibo, which will be compatible with the game.

The network test will allow players to download and play a part of Dark Souls: Remastered ahead of launch, in order to demo the gameplay and try some of the game's online functionality; it will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One ahead of the game's launch in May.

A new amiibo called Solaire of Astora has also been revealed and will be compatible with the Nintendo Switch version of the game, allowing players to perform the Praise the Sun gesture from the start of the game, rather than waiting for it to unlock during the story.

Dark Souls: Remastered launches for Nintendo Switch on 25 May.
