The company will hold an online network test for the game before the release, and information about the test will be available soon.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game was originally slated for May 25 but then delayed to a general summer release.

The game's PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions launched on May 25 in North America and Europe and on May 24 in Japan.

The HD remaster includes the main game and the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. Players can build their own characters with many weaponry, armor, magic, and crafting options. Players can team up or fight against each other in groups of up to six people among nine covenants online with dedicated servers.
