[Kotaku] Dark Souls might come to PC

In January, publisher Namco Bandai said that a petition to have cult hit Dark Souls ported to the PC had its "attention". Now, an Australian PC magazine is teasing something a little more substantial.

The newest PC Powerplay mag has hit newsstands, and its back page, teasing next month's issue (pictured above), isn't very subtle. It's got splashed all over it the game's trademark YOU DIED prompt, in the right font and everything.

Given the fact the magazine only hit stands this week, and that Namco are engaged in one of those awful LIKE US FOR NEWS scams over on its Facebook page, the likelihood of this being confirmed later this week actually seems pretty damn high.

Still, it's all 100% unconfirmed at this point, so don't get too excited, OK?


I remember the petition, got so many signs up, and the Steam group got so popular.

Be amazing if it really did.

So seems that petition wasn't useless for once.

I mean, they are, 99.99% of the time.

But it seems enough interest was shown. That is a PC only Magazine, they don't do console related news, and it's an official Ad.

Plus, the Facebook thing going on.

Imagine...

PC.

1440p, 32xAA, 16x AF, 60FPS constant. Way better controls...

Hopefully some type of dedicated server system...though doubtful.

Even if the game doesn't have an option for better graphics, or even high res textures...60FPS & AA alone is worth it.


I can see the first mod someone will hack in...

"Nude patch"

Usually the first mod any PC game gets. tongue.gif

As long as it comes with DLC or something new. After platinum + endless playing afterwards, I don't think I'd be too interested in replaying the same content again on PC.

And you just know invading/PvP is going to be hacked to hell on PC.

Mm?

And why is that?

There are more hackers per game than there ever was / is on PC.

In beofre people cry about it being a console port, haha.

 

This is an awesome game. I played it a ton on Xbox 360 and it would be a day one buy for me on PC, even if it was a direct clone of the console version. It was that damn good!

I would buy this game so fast. PC would fix all of the framerate issues we had on ps3.

The similarity stops at third person hack and slash. Other than that the two are nothing alike.
