The rumours were true, and Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is headed to PCs. Namco Bandai announced the game during a press event today, revealing that there were initially no plans for a PC port of the game.
However, after observing strong fan request for a PC version, Namco went to developer, From Software, to make the necessary arrangements to bring the game to PC. Director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, expressed his gratitude to fans for the feedback, and mentioned that the petition from PC fans was encouraging.
Namco didn’t provide any details of new content on Dark Souls for PC, but did confirm that the PC version would include new content that isn’t present in the console versions. The game will be released on August 24th worldwide, via select retailers and download release.
