Dark Souls II has launched locally, but none of the game's online features are working.

That will change later today, a Namco Bandai representative told CVG.

“The Dark Souls II servers for PSN and XBL are due to be live late tonight Australian time,” the representative said.

“The developers have been making last minute adjustments and the live date has been pushed back to coincide with the European launch of March 14 (UK time). We apologise for the inconvenience.”

Dark Souls II is out today for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will arrive on April 25.
