Dark Souls 2 screenshots with higher quality graphics removed from Steam Store page

Early screenshots of the game showing off better graphics were removed from Steam.

A number of Dark Souls II screenshots with higher visual quality were removed from the game’s Steam Store page.

For example, the image above, which still appears on the game’s Amazon page, also appears in an Wayback Machine March 28 snapshot of the Dark Souls II Steam page. But at the moment, the Steam page features only seven screenshots released earlier this month, all of which show off graphics closer to the visual quality in the released console version of Dark Souls II.

From Software previously said that Dark Souls II on PC will feature "increased texture resolution" and an "enhanced frame-rate option."

From Software also recently responded to claims that the final version of Dark Souls II did not match the visual quality of the game's prerelease footage. “Throughout the game development process, a game is constantly being balanced not only in game playability, but also in the realm of resource management,” From Software said.
