If Project Beast is Demon’s Souls 2, here’s what must happen

Demon’s Souls 2 rumours are firing out of the internet like a volley of Heavy Soul Arrows following the leak of Project Beast gameplay clips. Resident Souls addict Dave Cook has some suggestions on what needs to be done if it’s going to keep the series fresh.

The story is too old to be commented.

I still think this will be a multiple title

I'm only thinking this because of how many fans the Souls series has now, across 3 different systems, it took a petition to get the first Dark Souls game onto PC platforms, I can't see FromSoftware giving the middle finger to these gamers and losing out on all that extra cash in favour of the PS4

Since when does a high selling 3rd party title that's across three different systems ever become exclusive to just one? I can't think of any

It's a day 1 for me regardless

Dark Souls is multiplat. Demon's Souls is not.

Hellsvacancy1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

*hit head against the wall* IS IT CALLED Demon's Sous 2? you're just guessing/hoping it is

I'd LOVE this to be a PS4 ONLY title, Demon's Souls is one of the BEST PS3 games i've ever played, it far exceeds the two Dark Souls games

Shoot me for having an opinion

ShugaCane1482d ago

Well no it's not called Demon's Souls 2 but you are the one who insinuated firmly that it could be...

Anyways, Souls game or not, it looks amazing so that's cool.

It's been more or less confirmed by Demonite to be a Sony exclusive. He constantly used the word 'beast' and 'beastly' in many comments over at Gaf and it wasn't until 'Project Beast' was announced that people realised what he'd been hinting at. He's a Sony employee.

It would also make sense for Sony to do this. 'Dark Souls' was obviously a way for From Software to offer the same experience to Xbox fans and get them interested in the franchise. By making Demon Souls 2 for the PS4, many Xbox owners will now want to experience the game and buy a PS4.

because the brains of sce japan and from software combined brought the world the game demon souls with its awesome mechanics and never seen before multiplayer... so sony took the risks and all three platforms ate the fruit in the name of dark souls... so if its a ps exclusive which i certainly think it is... to that i say let then up it even more! :)

@Hellsvacancy

"*hit head against the wall* IS IT CALLED Demon's Sous 2?"

If it called Demon's Souls 2 than what will you do? Because this game isn't Dark Souls 3 either. So i don't understand your theory about From Soft giving the middlefingers to other gamers who love Dark Souls but doesn't have PS4. Not to mention the spiritual predecessor of Demon / Dark Souls are born and still exclusive for PS console till this day.

Beside, if people love the Souls series than i'm sure they didn't mind buying a PS4 just to play this game. Just like Monster Hunter fans who didn't mind buying a 3DS so they can play the latest MH.

OR if they don't wannna buy PS4 just for this game than they can wait for Dark Souls 3. I'm sure From Soft / Namdai will make Dark Souls 3 for PS4/X1.

Can't wait to see you dissapointed.

Sony japan is working on this along with Fromsoftware from what I've heard. It's likely be a PS4 Exlusive. Deal with it and buy a PS4. It is not that hard.

By your logic, How many fans Insomniac have now? Why are they giving the middle finger to PS fans with Sunter Overdrive? Think about it! MS has got a deal with Insomniac, and Sony has a long partnership with FromSoft... There' your answer

Wanna play this? Get a PS4! Nuff said

"Can't wait to see you disappointed"

Why would it disappoint me, do you not read? "I'd LOVE this to be a PS4 ONLY title"

Keep up to date with current affairs buddy, everyone (except you) on this site knows that i'm pro Sony, doubt you'll ever see me own an Xbox

Then, you make yourself look even more stupid, is Sunset Overdrive a "high selling 3rd party title that's across three different systems" no it's not

"Can't wait to see you disappointed"

Gamer vs. Gamer on here as usual. Nice way to attack someone. That sunset overdrive was a poor example. Its a new IP

Friendly fire! Friendly fire!

joab7771482d ago

Why is everyone convinced its demon souls 2. Its more likely another Souls game....but not demon souls 2.

I just say this b/c the "A" team has never worked on a sequel. Also, it allows them to do many new things without being tied to anything. And unlike other games, it can b new and retain name recognition. Not a ton of ppl played Demon Souls anyway.

It would b better to start fresh.

how do i delete this comment?? cant see no options to 'edit'

souga_houjou_jin1482d ago

again
this game from software was made also with a sony studio called japan studio

ps4 exclusive

LoveOfTheGame1482d ago

I can only hope this is multiplat. Really want to play it but don't want to pay $400 to do so.

Might have to be the first game I buy when I eventually get a PS4 couple years down the line.

lordstark1482d ago

Sony own's the rights to the Demon Souls series going multi plat ain't going to happen.

Sony own's the Demon's Souls IP it will be Ps4 only.

Charybdis1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

Agree,think it is ps4 exclusive, but also mind that the title isn't confirmed as dark souls 2.

HeavenlySnipes1482d ago

Hope it either comes out this year or late next year because The Witcher 3 will be taking up my time early 2015

I personally don't think Project Beast has anything to do with the Demon Souls series.
Its common for a dev to stick with what they do best and
Its clear to me that Project Beast is a new IP.

oasdada1482d ago

agreed... clearly in demon souls u cant take so many enemies on at once... consider how even 2 enemies together most of the time were a handful
