From Software has responded to claims that the finished retail version of Dark Souls II has inferior graphics to what was shown in preview builds.
“Throughout the game development process, a game is constantly being balanced not only in game playability, but also in the realm of resource management,” a From Software spokesperson told MCV. “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 II displays the culmination of this delicate balance and we’re very proud of the positive media and fan reception for the game.”
Dark Souls II is available now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. You can read Eric’s thoughts on the game in our review here.
