An image moving about the web today, and which looks official enough, confirms that Dark Souls II will release for PC on April 25, about six weeks after the new installment is released for consoles.
However, the wait is going to be worth it. According to the poster Dark Souls II on PC will feature four times higher graphic resolution and will also run at 60 frames per second. That said, you’ll still need a sizable rig to be able to run it in all maximum. Dark Souls II doesn’t look to be that much of a demanding game, but it surely isn’t going to be a sitter either.
Dark Souls II will be available through Steam and will be available for pre-order soon. Namco Bandai also plans to release a collector’s edition which includes the Black Armor Weapon DLC set, a Dark Souls II t-shirt, art book, and a cloth map.
On the consoles, the same collector’s edition features a 12″ Warrior Knight Statue that we got a closer look at recently in an official unboxing video. While the price on the PC edition is unknown, the console’s collector’s edition is going to go for $120.
Dark Souls II will release on March 11 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Namco Bandai is expected to officially announce the game for PC next week.
