Namco Bandai have today announced the release date for the PC version of Dark Souls II.
Dark Souls II will be released for the PC and via Steam on April 25th. It is also coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 14th.
The PC version will fully benefit from PC capabilities: increased texture resolution and an enhanced frame rate option. On top of that, FromSoftware have been working to perfectly adapt the game for a mouse & keyboard combo.
Those who pre-ordered the game on console will receive the Black Armour Edition – containing an Exclusive Metal Case, the Original Game Soundtrack and an early access to the Black Armour Weapon Set – or if pre-ordered on Steam, fans will get bonuses which include digital soundtrack and the early access to the Black Armour Weapon Set, the Official Dark Souls II Artbook in PDF format and The complete Dark Souls II Digital Comic Book (written by Rob Williams and Andi Ewington with art provided by Simon Coleby) as digital extras for a complete immersion in the universe of Dark Souls II.
Mathieu PIAU, EMEA Marketing Director at NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe stated:
We’re conscious of the high expectations from PC gamers and are working with FROMSOFTWARE in ensuring that the PC version of Dark Souls II offers the best experience possible. After an amazing first opus, DARK SOULS II promises an even more engaging, richer and challenging adventure that should please all gamers, regardless of their platform of choice
