Dark Souls 2 PC system requirements revealed

Dark Souls 2 will make its long-awaited arrival on Xbox 360 and PS3 next week. However, PC players will have to wait a little while longer, as they wait for an April 25 release date. The slight delay does offer up some time to make sure your PC setup is up to snuff, since Namco Bandai just released the Dark Souls 2 PC requirements.

Namco Bandai (via Polygon) offers the following:

Minimum requirements:

  • Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8

  • NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT or ATI Radeon HD 5870 with DirectX 9.0c graphics

  • AMD Phenom II X2 555 3.2 GHz or Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo E8500 3.17 GHz CPU

  • 2GB Memory

  • 14GB of HDD/SSD space

Recommended requirements:

  • Windows 7 SP1

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 465 or higher, ATI Radeon HD 6870 graphics with DirectX 9.0c or higher

  • Intel Core i3 2100 3.10 GHz or AMD A8 3870K 3.0 GHz

  • 4GB Memory or more

  • 14GB of HDD/SSD space

The above specs should hopefully lead to a better PC experience than the first Dark Souls, with no fan mods required.
