Bandai Namco, the developer of Dark Souls 3, confirmed that the third installment in the brutally hard RPGs would be able to run at 60 FPS. A rumor began circulating around Dark Souls 3 that the game would be locked to 30 FPS, much like the original Dark Souls port to PC was. Bandai Namco dispelled that rumor in a tweet earlier today:

The rumor allegedly rose from a Bandai Namco customer service representative who claimed the game would be locked to 30 FPS. However, Dark Souls 2 was not locked to 30 FPS so it would not make much sense to lock their newest installment down in the framerate department.
Dark Souls 3 will release on April 12 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in North America.
