Dark Souls 3 Will Run at 60 FPS on PC Says Developer
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
Earlier we reported that Dark Souls 3, the latest in the series that’s known for making grown men reap as they die time and time again, will be limited to 30 FPS on PC. This has now been overruled with the series official Twitter posting that the latest game will run at 60 FPS on PC.

Frames per second is a huge issue for developers and gamers alike. Some claim anything about 30 FPS doesn’t matter while others go so far as to say that anything below 60 FPS just makes them feel uneasy and unwell. When the directory of Fallout 4 claimed the game would run at 30 FPS on “everything”, the community gathered arms asking if this included PC’s who keep upgrading their graphics cards and feel like they shouldn’t be penalised for the slow catch-up of consoles have in regards to their graphical power.
From my experience, you can see the difference when playing a game, with consoles normally stuck at 30 FPS and PC’s being able to go well above 60 FPS. For a game as graphically fine as Dark Souls 3 will be, the last thing you want to experience is a slow or stuttering feel as you try to fight for your life in a brutal world.
