Dark Souls III is set to be another lesson in patience, putting you, your controller/keyboard/mouse and your temper to the test in another hard as nails adventure. Aside from the inevitable “You Are Dead” type messages every other minute throughout the game, we now have some idea of how hard the game is going to be on your system, as screenshots of the advanced graphics settings have surfaced online.
We already know that the PC version will be 60fps capable, not limited to 30fps as first rumoured, so that’s a good start. However, unlike the games console counterparts, you’ll also find a range of advanced features for tweaking in-game texture quality, shadows, depth of field, motion blur, lighting quality, effects, reflections, water, shaders and AA. That’s a lot of options, although all of them are still fairly common for a PC game. This means that you should be able to max things out and get a real visual treat over the console versions of the game, we hope, but it’s also good news for those of you with less powerful systems, as you can dial a lot of the settings down to keep in-game performance running smoothly.
Are you looking forward to Dark Souls III? Have you even completed the last two entries in the series yet?
