So you want to run Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on your PC, but you don't know if you can? There's an easy fix for that! The PC requirements have been revealed!

When you look at the PC specifications you will notice that there are two sets of specs, one for DirectX 9 and one for DirectX 11. Before you download Scholar of the First Sin on your PC, you will want to make sure which DirectX version you are running.

To figure out which version of DirectX you're running, use these diagnostic steps: 

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type dxdiag, and then click OK.
  3. On the System tab, note the version of DirectX that is displayed on the DirectX Version line.
  4. On the various tabs, check the version information for each DirectX file.
  5. When you are finished checking file versions, click Exit.

If Windows can't find the dxdiag program, you're running DirectX 5. or an earlier version of DirectX.

Now that we have that out of the way, here are the specs:
