Dark Souls 2 4K graphics with PS4, Xbox One regret

With Dark Souls 2 PC on the way next week, fans are still disappointed that From Software did not give in to demand and develop Dark Souls 2 on PS4 and Xbox One. It remains PC and last-gen only, with some glorious new Dark Souls 2 4K screenshots unlikely to change the downbeat mood among PS4 and Xbox One owners.

At the moment, there is no indication that Dark Souls 2 PS4 and Xbox One will release, although fans obviously believe that it will happen sooner rather than later.

Don’t forget that we’ve just had the confirmation of The Last of Us on PS4, so it really is a no brainer decision to tap into even more sales potential from those who would buy the game day one on PS4 and Xbox One.

Back to the PC version though, as PC owners cannot wait to pick up the game after Easter on April 25. Dark Souls 2 is easily going to look the best on PC, but for those that have the ability to output their monitors at 4K are truly in for a treat.

The guys over at PC Gamer have showed off some Dark Souls 2 4K goodness, with the game captured with a resolution of 3840×2160. We’ve included some of the beautiful imagery for you to take a look at here, but head to PC Gamer for the full collection – it’s well worth it.

Don’t forget that the PC version is going to be even more promising once users get to grips with Dark Souls 2 mods. It all goes back to the fact that it would have been really nice to see the game on PS4 and Xbox One this year.

Do you think it will still happen once Namco Bandai decide that they want to maximize sales? We’ve seen it with The Last of Us, we’ll probably see it with GTA V and don’t count it out from happening with Dark Souls 2 as well.

I would buy this for PS4 in a heartbeat. Personally I won’t buy any new games for XB360 or PS3, only Next Gen from this point forward. I rented this on 360 and was really intrigued by the gameplay but unimpressed with the graphics (after playing a bunch of PS4 games at 1080p/60fps, last-gen games just don’t impress… even The Last of Us). I’m hoping the developers at least let some 3rd party studio port it for them. Surely with the PC assets in-hand there could be a great 1080p experience here at least on PS4 and even if XB1… Read more »

All you pc fanboys are just mad that you can only play by yourselves or with very minimal splitscreen support. Consoles are about sharing the experience with up to three other people at the same time in the same room.

There’s no such thing as 4k gaming on PS4 or XboxOne, those things are potatoes.

Don’t care if the game will look better on the PC. This article is probably created by a PC fanboy. And besides, Dark Souls 2 on ps3 still have more players which includes Dark Souls AND Demon’s Souls gamers. While the PC version will only have Dark Souls gamers. This guy is obviously trying to annoy PS3 and Xbox owners that the PC version will be better. Seriously, this is getting old right now. This is the console wars, not platform wars. And I hope DkS 3 will be available only on PS4 and X1. If they put it on… Read more »

has anyone even looked at those pics? it was clearly not designed for 4k. that textures look blocky and disgusting.

other than that, i have never been more excited for a game. pre-ordered last night at GMG, crossing my fingers and hoping its not a buggy disaster. here’s to hope!

Very misleading. Why the regret about it not being on next gen consoles? If you want next gen dark souls II then buy it for pc and be done with it, why should they waste time developing for ps4/xbox when they can do much more with the pc version. There is nothing that can be done on the next gen consoles that isn’t done much better on pc.

Title is a bit misleading. It seems as if you are making it seem that the game is 4K on the PS4.
