The RPG sequel will drop on March 11 in North America, March 13 in Japan and March 14 in Europe, but director Yui Tanimura said the PC version of Dark Souls 2 has not hard release date yet.
Tanimura told Eurogamer that the PC version is not complete, though they are shooting for a soft release date somewhere in March.
“For the PC version we’re simply saying March,” Tanimura said. “We’re trying our best for PC and console. The reason we can’t announce the specific date is we’re working on more options on how to make the PC version optimal.”
Specifically, Tanimura said developers are working on what options players have to customize the PC version of the game.
Opposite of the development of the first Dark Souls game, From Software developed the PC version of Dark Souls 2 alongside the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
Tanimura said the first go around the development team was handcuffed because they developed the first Dark Souls for console before PC, thus limiting optimization.
“With Dark Souls 2, the team’s working on console and PC at the same time, so there shouldn’t be an issue with how optimal it will be on day one,” Tanimura said.
Namco Bandai will launch two special editions of the game with its release in March, including The Collectors Edition with a knight figuring, an hardcover art book, a full-color fabric map, the soundtrack and a metal case.
The Black Armor Edition, a pre-order bonus, comes with just the metal case and the soundtrack.
