FromSoftware doesn't deny Dark Souls 2 graphics downgrade claims


Dark Souls 2 is a great game. But there's complaints among fans that the game shipped has inferior graphics to the version that was shown off in preview builds as recent as a few weeks before release.

Speaking to MCV, FromSoftware issued a statement addressing the conspiracy and while they didn't flat out admit to a downgrade in graphics, they didn't necessarily say anything dispel the rumors either. 

"Throughout the game development process, a game is constantly being balanced not only in game playability, but also in the realm of resource management,” FromSoftware said.

“A developer is always challenged with creating the most rewarding gaming experience while delivering continuity in graphical quality, gameplay dynamics, and balance within the game. The final version of Dark Souls 2 displays the culmination of this delicate balance and we’re very proud of the positive media and fan reception for the game.”

Dark Souls 2 is currently sitting at a 92 Metacritic score. You can check out our review of the game here
