In case you were thinking of getting a refund due to performance issues, here’s what From Software has posted about the ones that are being widely talked about:


  • Mouse being too sensitive in the PC version.
  • Easy Anti-Cheat failing to launch when the Steam account name includes a multi-byte character (e.g., kanji).
  • Phenomenon of frame rate and other performance-related issues during gameplay.

All of these issues will be addressed and fixed in an upcoming patch. Specifically for the performance issues, the devs recommend updating your graphics card drivers to the latest version.
