The Dark Souls III servers have officially gone online ahead of release. For anyone who had managed to secure an early copy of the game, the servers were not up and a message saying “Failed to log into the Dark Souls III game server” would follow if you tried to log in.
Starting from today, you will have a notification pop up, which you will need to confirm you have the following patches downloaded before starting. We’ve tried the servers out already, and they are working great! The wait is finally over, and Dark Souls III’s launch is just hours away. We have already reviewed Dark Souls III, and thought it was worthy of a near perfect 9.5/10 score, and called it “the best game of 2016 so far”
