Dark Souls II for PC finally has a release date. From Software's upcoming role-playing game will launch April 25 for PC on Steam and elsewhere, the developer announced today. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will release next week on March 11.

The PC version of Dark Souls II will feature "increased texture resolution" and an "enhanced frame-rate option," the developer said in an update on Facebook. In addition to this, From Software promises that the game's controls have been "perfectly" adapted to mouse and keyboard.

Preordering Dark Souls II on Steam gets you a digital soundtrack and early access to the Black Armor Weapon Set, as well as the official Dark Souls II artbook in PDF format and the complete Dark Souls II digital comic book.

The system requirements for Dark Souls II have not been announced. Publisher Bandai Namco announced recently that preorders for the game are up 50 percent over the 2011 original and that the publisher will invest £1 million ($1.6 million) into marketing the game in the United Kingdom alone.
