Eurogamer's Digital Foundry took a look at the upcoming remake, analyzing the visual differences from the original versions of the game with an advanced PlayStation 4 code, and the results are positive. Here's the quick summation from the experts that examined the title:

"The early sentiment is this: Dark Souls 2 on PS4 is not entirely flawless in its delivery, but nevertheless, it is the best-looking incarnation of the game to date. A pixel count shows up a perfect 1920x1080 resolution, something we also hope to verify on Xbox One on launch. That's also backed by post-process anti-aliasing that matches the FXAA technique seen on the existing PC release. Compared to last-gen standard, the upgrade in clarity from 720p is considerable."

Sounds good, right? They were unable to compare it against the Xbox One version of the game, which will hopefully give similar results. Since they only used a PS4 copy, those tests will have to wait until launch. Digital Foundry points out that developers From Software had planned for the PS4 and Xbox One architecture when creating the game, which has no doubtmade the transition easier.

The lighting and higher definition make Dark Souls 2's muddy world come to life on the new hardware, and you can see the differences in the comparison video below. Head over to the full article for in-depth details, and watch out for more information as the April release date approaches.
