Dark Souls 3 will run at 60 fps on PC

Bandi Namco steps in to squash a rumor

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

On Twitter today, publisher Bandai Namco quickly dispelled a rumor about the upcoming Windows PC release of Dark Souls 3, apparent misinformation that had pegged the game's frame rate as locked at 30 frames per second. That refresh rate is generally considered unacceptable by many PC gamers, and today's confirmation comes as good news.

From the official Dark Souls Twitter account:

While the original Dark Souls was locked at 30 fps on PC — until modders stepped in — its sequel, Dark Souls 2, could run at 60 fps. A rumor that Dark Souls 3 would return to the original locked 30 apparently came from a customer service representative for Bandai Namco.

Dark Souls 3 will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One April 12 in North America.
