Dark Souls III’s PC port is not great. At least not when it comes to graphics options and being able to squeeze some more frames out of the game. On consoles, it’s apparently even worse, with the frame rate being all over the place to the point where it can, unlike the PC version, negatively affect gameplay. So while there’s a huge amount of room for improvement, it still looks like we’ve got the best version.
The important thing, however – beyond the fact that it’s better on PC than on consoles – is that, aside from one small area, the frame rate never dipped below 50, and across the game as a whole, mostly stayed at around 60. It’s more than playable, but it’s still extremely disappointing. This is the fourth game From Software’s released on PC and the third Dark Souls game, so it really should be better than this.
