A Bandai Namco representative said to Siliconera that the Collector's Edition of the game shown in its marketing materials--which feature a t-shirt, cloth map, copy of the game, art book, and Black Armour Weapons Set DLC--is only for Southeast Asia.

Any PC release of Dark Souls II will follow the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version, which will be released in North America on March 11 and in Europe on March 14. Unlike the original, the PC version of Dark Souls II will use Steamworks.

Developer From Software has previously said that the PC version of Dark Souls II will run at 60fps, as opposed to the 30fps cap on console.
