Dark Souls Remastered for PS4 is releasing on 25th May, but you'll get the chance to play it even sooner than that. Bandai Namco has announced the details for the game's pre-launch network test, which will be available to download for all.
The beta, which is primarily a stress test for the multiplayer servers, takes place over two days next week, from the 11th to the 12th May. In Japan, the test will be available for play between 7pm and 10pm JST each day. North America gets a slightly bigger window; players in this region will be able to take part between 6pm and 12am PT. Times for Europe have yet to be announced, but we'll update the article once we learn more.
It's also important to note that the client will be available to download from today, but only until the 8th May, so if you want to take part in the network test, you'll need to ensure you've got it installed and ready within the next week. The client is about 3GB, so it shouldn't take you too long to download. It should now be available in all territories.

Update: The times for the UK have now been announced. On each of the two days, players will be able to join in between 5pm and 11pm BST. Presumably, this will translate to 6pm and 12am for the rest of Europe.
The beta will apparently be limited to the Undead Parish area.
