I'll probably go for the PS4 version... so I need to pick up the pace with CB :-).

I suspect it's to do with the performance of the game on Switch. I know that some brief gameplay has been seen but, to delay the game on just one format quite close to launch, I think it'll be down to that.

For the PS4 version, the PS Store is offering a "free theme" if you pre-order. As standard, on the UK / Euro Stores you don't get the theme until launch day but it is available immediately for US purchasers. Let's take a look...



It is rubbish; a zero-effort theme that taints the Dark Souls name. I was thinking of pre-ordering but the lack of love put into this theme has totes put me off. Harrumph.

I could easily beat the game - I may go for a blindfolded speedrun next time - but that theme has just put me right off.

Apparently you can, yes.

To participate in the network test, you'll need to download a separate client from the PlayStation and Xbox Stores before May 9. PS4 players can grab the client here, while Xbox One owners can download it from here. Those planning to jump in on Xbox One will need to have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to take part in the test, while all PS4 owners will be able to participate.

Oh, don't get too excited. It's only for four hours each day.
The network test will only be held on two days: May 11 and May 12. It begins each day at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET and runs for approximately four hours, concluding at 11:59 PM PT / 2:59 AM ET. The test is set in the Undead Parish area and allows players to summon partners or invade other players' games.


And in the UK, that's 2am to 6am. FFS.

Had a quick go on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Any chance of an extension or is that it?

Only managed to play this for an hour or so. Demo are was from the bonfire after the dragon bridge to the gargoyles. They haven't really done much other than the obvious improved graphics and framerate.
