Dark Souls Coming to PC

No longer it is merely a rumor that Namco Bandai is porting Dark Souls to PC. PC Action, a German Gaming Magazine, has revealed that Dark Souls has been confirmed for PC. Likely this is due to the successful petition that Namco Bandai created to see if their was enough support from PC gamers, a petition that has garnered 92,000 signatures. Neogaf, the forum that continually gets news leaks on everything gaming related, were the ones that confirmed the PC Action had an article about the confirmed PC port. Normally you might just think this was a rumor, but this is the same group of people that first broke the news about Assassin's Creed 3 and they do have credibility. This is all very surprising news, but Namco Bandai is always one to take the chance to port games to new audiences.

The PC port of Dark Souls is going to be exactly like the console version, except there will be two new bosses, as seen here. There will also be gamepad support and it will be coming out in August. If you don't know the wonderfully difficult RPG Dark Souls then check out my impressions from last October. It is a dark game, but one of the best games of 2011. Will be interesting to see if the PC gaming community ignites the same way console gamers did when it was released. Thanks for reading, be back shortly with more.
