And by PlayStation 5 launch title we mean that a PC version for Demon's Souls is not currently on the cards -- though it may be a timed exclusive. As a built from the ground up remake of the original Souls game, running at a crisp 4K 60 no doubt this ticks off the Dark Souls sized box for the PS5 launch. And there's a new gameplay trailer that showcases it look.
Which is dark, demon-y, and very souls-like. Check it out.
Here's the latest info from Gavin Moore, Creative Director at SIE Worldwide Studios, confirming that this remake has been in the works for three years. With all art and assets recreated to capture the spirit of the original, Demon's Souls also leverages some of the cooler PS5 tech associated with the new Dual Sense controller. Which means haptic feedback will be there to add an extra layer of intensity to the Souls experience.
We have been working diligently for almost three years on the legend that is Demon’s Souls. Together with the masters of the remaster Bluepoint Games, we have lovingly crafted this thrilling experience to bring it to stunning new life on PlayStation 5.
In Demon’s Souls, we send you back to the fog-ridden kingdom of Boletaria like you’ve never seen it before. Here, death is not the end, and again the challenge seems insurmountable. But this dark world draws you in nonetheless, with its sumptuous sights and chilling sounds. Through the power of haptics, you feel every visceral blow, making even small victories all the sweeter.
It was essential to us that we recreated Demon’s Souls in such a way that longtime fans are transported back to the Boletaria they love. It’s the Boletaria that has been growing and maturing in their imaginations for over a decade. A place where every room, corner, and corridor has a story to tell. Here, the original characters, encounters and battles are brought to life in greater fidelity, making the story even richer and darker.
Even as we went back to the drawing board to build upon the original art, sound, music, and feel, our goal was always to remain true to the vision of the original classic – its story, gameplay and level design. With this in mind, we fine-tuned the title to ensure the game remains fresh and appeals to new users accustomed to modern controls and experiences.
Above all, this is to ensure the lands of Boletaria are living and breathing worlds, home to all manner of terrors, brimming with tension and challenge. In this way, we hope that Demon’s Souls is both parts new and familiar, welcoming to veterans and newcomers alike.
