Prepare to die and praise the sun repeatedly as Dark Souls is coming to PC one again. That’s right, the original Dark Souls. I know, I know, a new game in the series would have been better than a remaster but there’s still plenty of reasons to be excited about this. First off, Dark Souls was a pretty terrible PC port at launch and that’s putting it lightly. Luckily, this time around it sounds like the developers have actually put in the time and effort to deliver a great PC experience.
Good performance is the most important aspect here, however, we can certainly also expect Dark Souls Remastered to look a bit prettier than the original. We’re talking 4K resolution, 60 FPS, enhanced textures and all that other good stuff. In terms of content, the remaster will be the equivalent of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition, which includes the base game along with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.
Dark Souls originally made its way to the PC back in 2012 and, as mentioned, wasn’t the best port out there. To be fair, From Software didn’t have a lot of experience developing for the PC back then and have certainly did a much better job with the next two titles in the series. It’s also worth pointing out that the original Dark Souls was definitely playable if one were to install a couple of mods that greatly improved its performance and fixed some of the technical issues. Here’s hoping the remastered version runs smoothly right off the bat.
Dark Souls Remastered is scheduled to launch in just a few months on May 25. Here’s a little trailer to get you all hyped up for your return to Lordran.
