Patient PC players will be getting their chance to experience Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen in January. The Capcom RPG's release date and system requirements have been revealed.

Capcom announced on Capcom Unity that the game is "finally realized in 4K and running at silky-smooth 60 FPS." It's also mentioned that the frame rate is uncapped, so players will be able to surpass 60 frames per second if their PCs can handle it. Players will also be able to lock their frame rate to 30 or 60.

The announcement brings news that the game will support keyboard and mouse in addition to controllers, such as the Xbox One, Steam, and DualShock. Support for the DualShock 4 hasn't been consistent with PC games, but Capcom says it will work right out of the box.

The Dark Arisen will be four years old in 2016, so it's not a particularly demanding game. But if you're worried your PC won't be able to run it, the systems requirements are as follows:

Minimum PC System Requirements:

OS: Windows Vista or newer

Processor: Intel Core i5-660 CPU or equivalent

Memory: 4 GB RAM

Graphics: Radeon HD 5870 or equivalent

DirectX: Version 9.0c

Storage: 22 GB available space

Recommended PC System Requirements:

OS: Windows Vista or newer

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K or equivalent

Memory: 8 GB RAM

Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or equivalent

DirectX: Version 9.0c

Storage: 22 GB available space

More features to be included are the opition to mute Pawn chatter, nine new achievements, rempabble keyboard and mouse functions, customizable hot keys, and all previously released DLC.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is currently available for preorder on Steam for $29.99 and will be releasing on January 16. Preordering gets you a free digital artbook and soundtrack. The artbook contains over 300 pages of art from the original Dragon's Dogma, while the soundtrack features 53 tracks from both the original and Dark Arisen.

It was announced earlier this year that the PlayStation 4 would be getting a new game in the series called Dragon's Dogma Online. It released in Japan in August, but Capcom hasn't announced if it will come to the west.
