Dark Souls, Shiny Loot

The juice is loose on the Dark Souls II Steam pre-order deal! The deal accessible through Namco's website or through Steam directly includes The Official Dark Souls™ II Artbook (in PDF form), the game's complete soundtrack, and early access to the "Black Armor Weapons Pack DLC" which includes the following items:

• Black Flamestone Dagger
• Black Flamestone Parma
• Yellow Quartz Longsword
• Yellow Quartz Shield
• Bound Hand Axe
• Bound Wooden Shield
• Homunculus Mace
• Homunculus Wooden Shield
• Transgressor's Staff
• Transgressor's Leather Shield

While we haven't the foggiest as to what these items do, we'll be darned if they don't sound nifty. Also apparently included in the bundle, is the complete Dark Souls II Digital Comic Book written by Rob Williams and Andi Ewington with art provided by Simon Coleby. While the comic isn't mentioned as being included on the Namco web store entry, it is on the Steam page. Rest assured, the fact that this Namco store purchase is for the game's Steam code means that the deal is the same no matter whether you purchase via Steam or Namco's site (which is curiously four cents cheaper, before any fees).

The game's minimum requirements have also been announced, and are as follows:

OS: Windows XP SP3, Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8
Processor: AMD® Phenom II™ X2 555 3.2Ghz or Intel® Pentium Core ™ 2 Duo E8500 3.17Ghz

DirectX: Version 9.0c

Additional Notes: Controller support: Microsoft Xbox 360® Controller for Windows® (or equivalent) recommended

And these are Namco's recommended specs:

OS: Windows 7 SP1
Processor: Intel® CoreTM i3 2100 3.10GHz or AMD® A8 3870K 3.0GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 465 or higher, ATI Radeon™ HD 6870 or higher
DirectX: Version 9.0c
