Yesterday, a Reddit post surfaced online, that implied that the PC version of the upcoming Dark Souls 3 might be locked to 30 FPS. Apparently, Reddit user khawaja07 contacted Bandai Namco’s online support regarding the game’s framerate, after which the Bandai Namco’s online store replied that the “plan is to keep the frame rate locked at 30 FPS”.

As 30 frames per second is regarded as ‘unacceptable’ in general for PC players, this ‘inferior’ framerate would have upset many gamers.

Luckily, Bandai Namco stepped up, and took to Twitter yesterday to debunk the rumor.

Thanks for clearing that up Bandai Namco, and shame on you, Online Support! Dark Souls 3 was announced last year, and is being developed by From Software for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Developed by acclaimed Japanese developer FromSoftware and directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, Dark Souls 3 is the latest chapter in the critically acclaimed Dark Souls series with its trademark sword and sorcery combat and rewarding action RPG gameplay.  Players will travel across a wide variety of locations in an interconnected world of unrelenting challenge and deep RPG gameplay as they search for a way to survive the coming apocalypse.

“The DARK SOULS brand became a phenomenon thanks to amazing work from our dear partners FromSoftware and our very own BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment teams”, said Herve Hoerdt, Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. “But above all, we are blessed to have such a supportive and loving community, and we are happy to dedicate this final episode to them!”

Dark Souls 3 will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One April 12, 2016.
