At Least Dark Souls’ PC Requirements Won’t Make You Scream In Agony
We know by now that the Dark Souls PC port is just a favour to the fans. There’s not going to be real keyboard and mouse support, with the developers saying that it would be much easier to play with a controller. There aren’t going to be any visual enhancements, and the frame rate will still suffer the way it did on the consoles versions. But hey, it’s Dark Souls on PC.
Thankfully, all of this translate into some really, really low system requirements. If you’re a PC gamer, then you really shouldn’t have a problem running Dark Souls at all. If these specs do seem a bit high, you might want to start considering that upgrade, like now.
