The Dark Souls 2 PC release has been causing players problems early on, with a string of performance and crashing issues affecting the game. Dark Souls 2 was recently made available digitally for PC after the console release, the boxed retail version hits UK stores next week.
Game developer Bandai Namco has acknowledged these problems reported on the community forums and is working to resolve them quickly. Reports have indicated that the most common issues players are suffering with include controller problems and game crashes. The suggested time frame for a fix to be released is before the launch of the physical PC copies, an update that would be appreciated quickly prior to May 2nd.
Anyone who downloads Dark Souls 2 from Steam will not be guaranteed these problems, they seem to be affecting some players rather than everyone. The support thread set up on Steam has assured fans that hard work is going on behind the scenes to restore normality. Any players who are experiencing problems exclusive to these known issues should use the thread to report them and help the fix.
