Dark Souls 2 will arrive on PC and Steam April 25, according to a post this morning on Dark Souls' official Facebook page.

The Windows PC version will include higher resolution textures than its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 counterparts, "an enhanced frame rate option" as well as controller and mouse and keyboard support.

Dark Souls 2 is headed to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next Tuesday, March 11. It will arrive on consoles in Australia and Europe March 14. For more on the game, be sure to read our hands-on impressions and interview with co-director Yui Tanimura from E3 as well as our hands-on impressions of the game's beta from the Tokyo Game Show.

When the original Dark Souls Windows PC version launched in 2012, it was limited to 30 frames per second and a resolution of 1024 x 720. Since then, modders stepped into increase the resolution and frame rate. Be sure to read our interview with Peter Thoman, a PhD student who brought a 60 fps mod to the original.
