PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will get to enjoy Dark Souls II next week, but PC players are going to have to wait a whole month before they can experience the highly anticipated sequel.
While Siliconera got the jump on the official release date last week, Bandai Namco has confirmed today that Dark Souls II will hit April 25 on PC through Steam and retailers. This version will launch with an increased texture resolution and an enhanced frame rate option. No reason was given for why the PC version will launch a month after the console versions.
The first Dark Souls launched on PC a year after the PS3 and Xbox 360 version and was highly criticized for being buggy and having troublesome mouse and keyboard support. All of these problems were ironed out through patches, but the initial launch period was rough. Perhaps From Software needed extra time to ensure that the same didn’t happen with Dark Souls II.
