Dark Souls 2 System Requirements Revealed By Steam Listing
Your psyche might be ready to be abused by Dark Souls 2, but what about your computer? Namco has released the recommended and minimum system requirements needed to run the action RPG on the PC.
While Dark Souls 2 might have an unforgiving difficulty level, the game's more lenient on your PC. The specs, posted on Steam, are as follows:
The first Dark Souls didn't get much extra mileage out of better systems due to the game's low resolution and locked frame rate. Developer From Software admitted last year that they had half-assed the PC port. However, DS2 will feature improved textures as well as an "enhanced frame rate mode." You won't have to rely on Durante to fix the game.
The PC version of Dark Souls 2 is also said to have better mouse and keyboard controls, a weak point in the previous game. However, as you can see with the system requirements, a gamepad is still recommended. I can barely play Souls games with a controller so I shudder to think what a mouse/keyboard playthrough would be like.
Dark Souls 2 will launch on PC on April 25th. If you can't wait that long, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are due next week.
