Steam Removes Misleading Higher Quality Dark Souls II Screens
Dark Souls II is a great game. I will be picking up the PC version when it launches later next month, and personally I’m hoping it looks a bit better than the versions on PS3 and Xbox 360. They’re smooth, but they look nothing like the gameplay videos From Software fed us up until launch.
Earlier this month From Software explained why the game experienced a bit of a visual downgrade, but promised that the PC version would feature greater texture sizes and a better framerate. Problem is, they’ve now removed any comparison images we had from Steam itself.

Numerous screens showcasing the beauty of Dark Souls on Steam’s store have now been taken down, leaving only seven images that more accurately depict what the game really looks like. A few of these examples, such as the header above, still exist on Amazon’s Store Page for the game, but it seems like Valve wasn’t that comfortable with displaying images that misrepresented and possibly mislead possible customers.
Dark Souls II came under fire after the game released on PS3 and Xbox 360, with the title looking quite a bit worse than anything that From Software had released prior. The scope of the project was brought up as the main reason, with From Software stating that what they were able to achieve at the beginning with a relatively small world was not possible with the massive universe present in the game today.
Which makes sense. Trust us, we understand that (most of the time). Just don’t go trying to mislead everyone for months then.
