The PC conversion of Dark Souls was championed by staunch PC industry veterans earlier this year, until Namco saw that it would definitely make a lot of people happy should it eventually reach our personal computers.

Well that time is drawing ever nearer and we now have the Dark Souls system requirements, so lets take a look and see what sort of system you might need to run Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition...

Dark Souls System Requirements

OS: Windows XP , Windows Vista, Windows 7, or newer

CPU: 2.6 GHz Dual-Core


GPU: ATI Radeon 4850 or better, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or better

RAM: 1GB (XP), 2GB (Vista/7)


DX: 9.0c

AUDIO: Direct Sound Compatible

OTHER: Multiplayer requires microphone headset support

So there we go. As expected, only a fairly modest PC, by todays standards, is required to run Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition for the PC.

Thanks to Cham0d for getting these details.

The PC version called Dark Souls Prepare To Die Edition is due out on August 24th 2012.

Does this dark RPG excite you? What do you think the Prepare To Die Edition will have in terms of extras compared to the original console version?
