Dark Souls PC Hardware Requirements Reveal Microphone Support
Yo dawg, I heard you like to play Dark Souls, so I put microphone support in the PC version so you can scream while I scream.
Steam now has the full system requirements for Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition, and while they're not surprising, the suble addition of microphone support definitely is. In the past, the series has strayed from conventional communication to offer a mysterious, and sometimes humbling, experience.
Below are the full hardware requirements:
OS: Windows XP , Windows Vista, Windows 7, or newer
Processor: 2.6 GHz Dual-Core
Memory: 1 GB (XP), 2GB (Vista/7)
Hard Disk Space: 4 GB
Video Card: 512 MB RAM, ATI Radeon 4850 or higher, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher
Sound: Direct Sound Compatible
Additional: Multiplayer requires microphone headset support
Keep in mind that the Prepare To Die Edition, which is exclusive to PC, will include all of the following in addition to the full ball-busting original experience:
New Bosses – Including Artorias of Abyss, Chimera of Tomb, and more
PVP Online Matchmaking System – Quick matching for co-op or PVP
New Areas – Including Oolacile Tomb, Old Ruins and more
New Enemies – Including Abyss Guard, Chained Prisoner and more
New NPCs – Including Hawkeye Gough and more
New Weapons and Armor – Equip some from the new bosses, enemies, and NPCs

Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition will be releasing on August 24th, 2012.
