It has been confirmed on Neogaf and apparently it's going to be released in August and have new bosses, but other than that everything will be identical to the console versions.

Wow this is the only game that makes me contemplate about buying a next-gen console and now it's coming to the PC. Decisions, decisions.

I'll probably purchase this even though I haven't gotten very far in the one I have for the PS3.

Please be optimized.

It was 'next-gen' six years ago dude... take the plunge :|

On-topic this is kickass news. I can't exactly imagine the game with a mouse and keyboard but 'new bosses' certainly gives me a reason to try.

Ever since I heard about the possibility of a PC version I can't shake the feeling that it'll really be a game-changer. Controlling with keyboard and mouse is gonna give the game a fidelity of control that could easily simplify the game a whole lot. Being a game where you can literally kill anything if you're just good at avoidance, having that extra twitch could really ruin the experience. Not to mention the fact that lock-on targetting (which is a big part of the game) is a system that's exclusively designed for controller-usage.

@RedCream: Haven't seen someone calling 360/PS3 next-gen consoles in a looong time. ;)

Anyway, I hope From won't f*ck with their fans and will release the new content as DLC for consoles.

I really hope it's ported well. The game had some frame rate issues on consoles from what I've heard, so a well optimized PC port would be excellent.

Man really? This is embarrassing then. I'm way too late cause I invested on my trusty PC first. August can't come any sooner.

The Furtive Pygmy - so easily forgotten. I've seen litteraly a million threads speculating to his whereabouts so putting in an extra clue would be cool, even if we don't get to see him until Doomed Souls in 2013.

@Grissefar: I'm pretty sure you play as a descendant of the Pygmy...or something along those lines.

As for new bosses, check the limited edition artbook, theres a few things that weren't included. Like the fat dude riding a boar

Great, now if only they'll get the extra content to console players for free or minimal charge.

"New bosses for the PC version everything else is 1:1 from the console version"

NOPE.

In all seriousness, this is terrific news. I'd love for them to include some of the dialogue/events From cut. Having Oscar/Undead Asylum man play a far more pivotal role would be fantastic, it sure as hell worked for Ostrava of Boletaria.

I know I have too, but I am tempted to buy the console version again.

I hope the announcement behind the wall is a confirmation of the PC port but also an announcement that the content being added to PC is coming to consoles for free, CD Projekt style.

If they fail to make the mouse controls perfect, with no acceleration, smoothing and input lag, this might be the most disappointing game of the year.

Guess I'll be getting a second copy of Dark Souls. Even without the extra content I'd buy it again just so I can play in the higher resolutions a PC is capable of. I hate seeing jaggies.

Still being cautiously optimistic here since for all we could know the PC port could be pretty bad but considering how disappointed the developers were with the technical problems on the console (Read: Blightown) I'd wager they'll probably want to polish up a bit more. We'll see when the time comes but it's still good news this. I'd like an official response though instead of a magazine announcement.

I'll wait to hear how well it runs, but if all is good I will probably buy it again!

Have my PC hooked up to a big screen so I would rather all these games come out for PC too.

If those fuckers think I'm going to drop coin on that shitty game a second time just because they fixed the frame rate, they've got another thing coming. I'll continue slumming it with my Demon's Souls on PS3.

This was looking like more or less a sure thing for quite a while now, but it's still reassuring to know it's actually being realized. As somebody who missed out on the original console release because my consoles were (and continue to be) on a separate continent, I was hoping this PC version would be true so I could play it on my best hardware and what do you know, now I can. Curious to see how well they can adapt those controls to mouse and keyboard (I'll probably just end up playing with a gamepad anyway), but I look forward to finally catching up with it in August.

Finally Blighttown will be fully realized in all it's poison induced glory ! I can usually ignore an inconsistent framerate but that was beyond distracting, genuinely made me feel a little ill in spots.

This will hopefully give me a chance to join in on the early PC crowd that haven't yet played it; I would love to guide people through the early stages of the game.

@RedCream: Get it on PC. If you don't have a good enough PC build one for $750 and it will run most games perfectly fine.

Neat, just hope the port is good and optimized. This could be really awesome or really disappointing depending on that.

Hmmm. I do want to play it, but having a closed system seems pretty integral to the experience. Not convinced it won't get completely ruined on PC.

I'm too tempted to fuck around with my games on the PC, mods cheats and such. After finishing them at least once purely.
So considering i aleady did just that on the PS3 it will be too tempting to just break the game on the PC, which would probably ruin the experience in the first place.
 
While it would be interesting to see if they manage to make the game not look like shit graphics wise i still think my one go through the PS3 version was plenty enough and it is unlikely i'll be getting it on the PC.
