Dark Souls 2 PC trailer is pretty and deadly

Praise the sun

Dark Souls 2 is a fantastic game. It’s insanely difficult, but also incredibly rewarding. PS3 and Xbox 360 players have been reveling in its devious death traps, and now PC gamers can join the party. Unlike the first Dark Souls, it seems that the PC version will surpass the console one.

Here is the Dark Souls 2 PC trailer:

For those of you who don’t like to click the play button, it shows off the beautiful horror of the world with some very impressive CGI visuals. Those who have played the game will recognize some locations. This is followed by a short montage of death and despair, including the giant spiders and swirling vortex. No, it doesn’t show off the improved lighting and texture details that we can expect from the superior processing power of PCs, but it still looks rather beautiful.

Launching end of this week, the PC version means that Dark Souls 2 will finally be accessible to all. Everyone can share in the Hollowing. Just pick your covenant wisely. I wish they’d made new covenants for the PC master race – they seem like the true “Sun Bros”.

With Dark Souls 2 fully released, does this mean that we’ll see a new Dark Souls announcement at E3? Perhaps Dark Souls 3 for new generation consoles, or maybe a Game of the Year edition? Maybe they will rebrand the franchise for the new generation – I’d totally get on board with Darker Souls.

Have you been waiting for the PC version, or are you already hours deep into jamming the console game?

    So this game is not going to look like the Reveal gameplay you’ve seen. So before all the PC peeps come in and gloat…yeah…no. It’s going to look better though, but it’s not magically gonna change into the game we saw pre-release

          I don’t believe there will be a need to adjust the resolution, controls and FPS as they are already supported just fine. I predict some nice lighting / higher texture resolution mods for sure though.

            Yeah, it’s not a poor port, it was actually developed for PC alongside consoles as well.

      Not that it matters much. The reveal footage was notably different for one reason: The torch was a more important gameplay element. Obviously, they won’t be cranking it back up to this level for the PC version because they want to keep the gameplay consistent across platforms.
      As for some of the old assets … who knows, maybe they just scrapped them back then.

        True, shadow and lightning effects looked amazing at first, but I guess consistency is priority

    I love dark souls 2 since the first time i played it. I guess I’m addicted. I bought it at the best price- check Kinguin, the price was so low I couldn’t belive it.
