Demon's Souls: New Trailer, Everything We Know About The PS5 Launch Title

Demon's Souls released all the way back in 2009/2010 on the Playstation 3, and served as a precursor to the popular Dark Souls series.

The Dark Souls series didn't get the mainstream popularity it has until a while after its release.

Because of this, many people haven't had the chance to experience Demon's Souls, the game that started it all.

REVISITED: Demon's Souls is a precursor to the popular Dark Souls series.

In June 2020, during a Playstation 5 showcase event, it was revealed that a Demon's Soul remake would be releasing on the PS5 as a launch title on November 12th.


Despite not releasing until November 12th, it was announced the game had gone gold on September 24th 2020.

"Going gold" means that the game is complete and the publishers have a copy of the game that is ready to be manufactured and shipped to stores.

Bluepoint Games Releases New Trailer

Looking at the trailer and comparing it to the PS3 original, it looks like a completely new game.

The developers, Bluepoint Games, have done a fantastic job remaking the game, the same as they did for Shadow Of The Colossuses.


Everything To Expect From The PS5 Launch Title

The PS5 launch title will feature many improvements over the original version of the game.

Demon's Souls will include a performance and cinematic mode, with performance running at 4K/60fps, and cinematic running at 4K/30fps.

There will also be a variety of filters and other options to tweak the appearance of the game, including making the game look like the Playstation 3 original.

Haptic feedback is also being intergrated into the game, this will allow players to feel their swords clash against shields.

3D audio will also be utilised in the game too, to give a more immersive experience when trying to survive.

Some of the UI elements have been tweaked to enhance the overall player experience.

The games morality system, World Tendency, was never really fully explained in the original, but it has been overhauled and made much clearer in the remake.

There will also be no difficulty options for the games, what you see is what you get, and prepare to struggle a lot.

The Souls series is known for its extreme difficulty curve, leaving new players to frustratingly get killed by enemies hundreds of times, often with long back tracks from their respawn point.
