The new Dark Souls is out! Okay, so the game has been around on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for about a month and a half. But as of 3:00 PM Pacific Time yesterday, PC gamers can get in on the fun, too. Dark Souls II can be found right here on Steam.
According to this video by GameSpot, the folks behind the Dark Souls series did a much better job porting the sequel than they did the original:
The PC version looks better than the console releases, GameSpot says, thanks to support for higher resolutions and higher-detail textures. The frame rate isn't capped at 30 FPS, and mouse and keyboard controls are usable. It doesn't sound like From Software added much extra pizazz to the PC release, but we're at least in for a competent port.
The system requirements are pretty light, too. The Steam product page recommends a Core i3-2100 or A8-3870K processor with 4GB of RAM and either GeForce GTX 750 or Radeon HD 6870 graphics.
