It looks like PC fans won’t have to wait too long for “Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen,” as Capcom revealed that the fan favorite role-playing game (RPG) will be coming to the PC on Jan. 15. This will also be the prettiest version of the game as it will be running on a very smooth 60 frames per second (fps).

To make sure PC players will be able to play the dark fantasy RPG at it’s best, the Capcom Unity Blog revealed the proper specs to play the game in full 4K. Players will need a Windows Vista or newer for their OS while their processor must be the equivalent of an Intel Core i7-4770K.

For those unfamiliar with the dark action RPG, “Dragon’s Dogma” is a game that originally came out on the PS3 and Xbox 360. It utilized a unique feature where players could create their own companions and recommend them to other users online.

Companions are a very important part of the game as “Dragon’s Dogma” often had very difficult enemies that could not be beaten by the player alone. Dragon’s are obviously a big challenge to face for players and a Troll and a Cerberus proved to be just as deadly for gamers.

“Dark Arisen” is a special re-release of “Dragon’s Dogma,” which adds a few extra dungeons that players could compete in after finishing the game. This added plenty of replayability to the game, which is already large when one considers the numerous quests that players can partake in.

An article from Game Informer has expressed surprise at the lack of sequel news for “Dragon’s Dogma.” While it got solid scores from critics, fan reception to the dark RPG is very positive to the point that a PC version was demanded by the aforementioned fans and eventually granted by Capcom.

PC fans will finally be able to play “Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen” on Jan. 15. Those with a PS3 or Xbox 360 will be able to play the game right now. While it might not be as visually awesome as the PC version, it’s still an action RPG that many fans have fallen in love with.
