Dark Souls III will be released in less than a week and masochist gamers are surely rejoicing. However, not all is cheery in the dark and dreary world of Dark Souls III.
Critics that reviewed the game did mention instances of frame-rate drops. One of the worst instance of slowdown occurred in an area called “Halfway Fortress” that features a huge swamp and crab enemy. The main causes of the slowdowns are when:
- The player runs
- Multiple enemies attacking simultaneously
- Many enemies appearing on screen at one time
While there are frame rate drops throughout the game, it doesn’t compare to those found in the Halfway Fortress. In the past, Dark Souls games have suffered frame rate issues, yet it still has not detracted from its renowned punishing and rewarding experience.
Dark Souls III will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 12, 2016.
