“We are conscious of the high expectations from PC gamers and are working with From Software in ensuring that the PC version of Dark Souls II offers the best experience possible,” said Namco’s EMEA marketing director Mathieu Piau.
“After an amazing first opus, Dark Souls II promises an even more engaging, richer and challenging adventure that should please all gamers, regardless of their platform of choice.”
