Dark Souls 2 Producer Promises a Better PC version

Dark Souls does not run the best on PC, however, Dark Souls 2 producer Yui Tanimura. Promises that the team will put more time into the PC version of the game. He even went as far as to say the PC version of Dark Souls was “sort of half-assed.”

In an interview with Shack News, Tanimura said the team was so used to working with console, they had a hard time with the PC version.

“We will definitely put more priority on the PC,” said Tanimura. “Last time, we started working on PC after the console version was complete. This time, because we are considering the PC from the beginning, you can be sure there will be more care put into PC development.”

Dark Souls was only put on the PC because of the petition that saw over 100,000 signatures from players everywhere. This time, PC players will be able to purchase day and date with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

This game could really use a Wii U version. In Dark Souls, there is no pause screen, and your inventory screen appears on the main screen obstructing your view. With the Wii U, you can put that inventory screen on the Wii U Gamepad, and free up the main TV to see your character. Hopefully From Software has a Wii U port down the line.

Dark Souls 2 will be launching on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in late 2013 or early 2014.

    The series is made to be used with a controller, so I have no idea how they thought mouse/keyboard could ever be used for this series…

      Yeah, but the PC fanboys want it…. so they will get it.

    I enjoyed the first Dark Souls but a sequel is unnecessary if you ask me.

      Yeah, that's how I felt Dark Souls, after playing Demon Souls. I loved Demon Souls, but wasn't really interested in Dark Souls.
