Technically Dark Souls II isn't an MMOG, but it does have social elements and it's a bloody awesome RPG. Better still, its got a PC release date.

If a release date alone wasn't good enough news, there are even intentions to beef up the frame rates and significantly improve the texture quality.

“Dark Souls II’s PC & STEAM version will benefit from PC capabilities with increased texture resolution and an enhanced frame rate option. On top of that, FromSoftware have been working to perfectly adapt the game for a mouse & keyboard combo.”

Released on April 25th (it's my birthday on the 26th if anyone wants to gift me a copy) it's boasting some extra goodies for anyone who pre-purchases off Steam. Better still, there's also a new trailer below and a Facebook gallery here.

10 early access weapons and shields: 
  • Black Flamestone Dagger 
  • Black Flamestone Parma 
  • Yellow Quartz Longsword
  • Yellow Quartz Shield 
  • Bound Hand Axe
  • Bound Wooden Shield 
  • Homunculus Mace
