Dark Souls 2 PC Update 1.05 is Now Live

The 1.05 update for Dark Souls 2 on PC has been published on Steam and is now available for download. Although no patch notes have been released, the game has suffered from a variety of issues since its launch on PC. Presumably, the update knocks out a couple of the most troublesome problems.

Despite no change log being released, From Software have released a statement about the current state of Dark Souls 2 and what they plan to address in the next week. The post states the following:

  • We are currently investigating and escalating [the game crashing on startup]. Some possible work-arounds can be found here: We’ll keep this space updated as we know more​
  • Reports of some previously VAC banned players are unable to play online in Dark Souls II. We will update this space when we have more information on this topic.
  • Dark Souls II does not recognize or take input from my controller. If you are experiencing this problem, try the following: “Open up Device Manager and under Human Interface Devices, right click and disable all HID-compliant game controllers, and if you have a G13 disable the Logitch G13 Joystick. Restart the game and it should work. You may also need to disable any virtual HID-compliant game controllers as well.” If you continue to experience this issue, please get in touch with our support team and let them know what controller you are trying to use. We’ll do our best to assist you from there. We will continue to update this space with more information on this issue.
  • Reports of players having issues with Keyboard and Mouse controls. We are currently investigating this topic. Please post here with detailed descriptions of your experiences. We will continue to update this space with details as we have them.
  • I do not know where my pre-order bonuses are. “Should be located in “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Dark Souls II​\DARK SOULS- DIGITAL EXTRAS” if you have it. Make sure you have the preorder content listed under the games dlc as well.” Thank you Cute Little Girl for the post. We will continue to update this space with more information as we have it. If you still don’t have access to your pre-order items, please get in touch with our support team.

​In our review of Dark Souls 2‘s PC version we noted the game’s high quality port job, but it isn’t perfect. With Kadokawa’s purchase of From Software, and critical acclaim, we expect to see many more Souls games in the future. Hopefully they’re a little more polished on release.
