I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard the recent reports of Dark Souls 2’s ‘downgradeation’. Well, it appears that those reports were legit after all. YouTube’s member ‘HyperBitHero’ has posted a video that compares the final build with the April 2013 build. As we can clearly see, the final build feels flat and washed out compared to the earlier build. Moreover, the use of specular maps has been decreased for no apparent reason. The PC version of Dark Souls 2 is planned for an April release, so it will be interesting to see whether that version will be able to match the April 2013 build. Enjoy!
