For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game's amazing online experience, we're happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon's Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time."
Atlus also motioned that while servers will be kept open, it all depends on user activity and that interest remains constant. So if you still haven't finished the multiplayer side of things, prepare yourself to die and experience one of the most brutal games before it's too late.
