While the console version of Dark Souls II hits next week, the PC version, with its increased texture resolution options, isn't due out until April 25. While that may be a rough deal for those going exclusively PC this generation, it stills gives you time to make sure your system won't be completely at fault for the inevitable "You Died" screens.
Thanks to a recent post on Namco Bandai's store page, we've finally been given the final PC specifications and they aren't looking too shabby considering the proposed benefits of high textures and frame rates. Here's the minimum specs:
OS: Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8Suprisingly support is still there for those on Windows XP (what little of you that are left), a noted feature that has been absent from the past year of PC releases. Here's the more beefier but still reasonable recommended specifications:
OS: Windows 7 SP1With a reasonable request of at the very least a four year old GPU, it seems like Dark Souls 2 won't be super taxing on any system made within the last three years. Those still running toasters may have some slight trouble, but otherwise it all seems fairly simple for fans of From Software's sequel to Dark Souls.
How does your PC stand against these specs? Let us know in the comments below! Dark Souls 2 will be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come March 13th, with the PC release available April 25th.
