The news that Elden Ring has been delayed to February 25th 2022 has upset many players who were looking forward to playing it in January. However, seemingly to make up for this last-minute delay, From Software has recently announced that they will be conducting a series of network tests, which players can sign up for. While this isn’t the same as a beta, it will provide players a chance to see and experience the game first-hand. The network test is more about testing out the game’s network capabilities and multiplayer features, so expect the test and gameplay to revolve around that. If you are interested in taking part in the test, our Elden Ring Closed Network Test Sign Up guide will explain what you need to do to sign up for it.
How to Sign Up For Elden Ring Closed Network Test
Luckily, signing up for the Elden Ring Closed Network Test is easy and can be done in a couple of quick and simple steps. To begin with, go to the Bandai Namco official closed network test webpage. Once there, you will need to select which platform you will be playing on. These are: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. PC is not supported. Next, you will be required to tell which, if any, of From Software’s previous titles you have played. Finally, all that’s left is to enter your email address and confirm you are not a robot.
The tests themselves will only occur on specific dates and will last only for several hours. Here is a complete list of their dates and times:
