Nice work, gamers. It seems Dark Souls will be getting a PC version, as revealed by German magazine PC Action. Don't let anyone tell you that rallying together on the Internet for a shared cause is a waste of time.

While we haven't received an official announcement from Namco Bandai quite yet, after all of the Facebook teaser silliness, I'm willing to go with it. According to the aforementioned publication, Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition will be out this August.

It's been noted that the game content is essentially the same as what was playable on consoles, though two bosses are being added for this version. (Follow the link below if you'd like to spoil their names.) I think I speak for most of us when we say that a stable frame rate is all that's really needed here.
