Sony Japan has confirmed that Demon’s Souls online features will go offline on February 28, 2018.
end of an era :(
exactly and i m bit sad , is the true end of PS3...though the SP remains extremely replayable with its unsurpassable atmsphere and i m still making some mini walkthroughs from time to time ....is one of these games that imo must not be remaked without proper respect and attention
Agreed I do hope they do remaster it for PS4 ASAP. Old Monk is possibly the best boss ever. Simply because it was not a CPU but in fact another player.
Good thing the game is fully emulated on PC now. Looks ace in 4K or higher.
With the servers going offline it will be almost impossible to get a world white soul tendency although you can still get a black soul tendency (just die a lot). http://demonssouls.wikidot.... @Deep-throat Emulation or even a remaster (not likely although you never know) if the servers are down then you will never be able to invade worlds, fight off invaders or even help other players.
Exactly I'm actually a bit surprised I actually thought this was already offline a long time ago.
so did I, then I found out they extended it due to public demand.
Makes me want to pick up a PS3 just to play this again.
Hopefully it's to make way for Demon's Souls PS4 servers. Fingers crossed for an announcement at PSX
Exactly what I was thinking. Man I also want Bloodborne 2 more than anything right now.
doing a playthrough of bloodborne right now with a friend. i love the Chikage bloodtinge build :)
@Goldby Ayy! lol that was favorite build of the base game. Then then they released the The Old Hunters and I am all about the Rakuyo.
at this point, I'd take demon souls ANYTHING for ps4 - come on, sony!
All they need to do is bring out a Demon's Souls and Dark Souls remaster for the PS4. This would be especially attractive if the games were 1080p @ 60 fps (Hint!) just like they did with Dark Souls II.
Very possible. It would explain what Miyazaki has been up to.
That would be absolutely awesome. Unlikely but still awesome.
Since 09 no games that I have played have been able to surpass it. When my friend first showed me gameplay of demon,I thought it looked slow and it had bad graphics.and then I played it and it became my favourite game ever.never judge a book by its cover.
This echoes my own experience. When people first started hyping it just before the Japanese release, I checked out some gameplay and thought it looked crap. "People are just hyping because it's a PS3 exclusive, move along." Then I finally got around to playing it, and it was an instant 10/10 and my favourite RPG ever, and started off my favourite series in all of gaming. Didn't see that one coming...
Same. I figured I'd give it a try and I was hooked from the first second. Literally my favourite series ever
Dark Souls 1 surpassed it.
I love that game to,I think it’s a tie personally.
Agreed, to a point. Both games are classics along with BB.
I mean, sure, I personally prefer Dark Souls, but it's still a really close call and Demon's Souls is still incredible. It has easily the best sense of atmosphere of any of the Souls games, and it's a real marvel how such a low budget game that was expected to sell under 100,000 units was still so utterly brilliant. I can understand why many still consider it to be the best in the series.
I agree with Movefasta. Love them both equally and I can't decide which one is better because although very similar, imo Dark does gameplay better but Demon's does atmosphere better. What I do know is that they're my favorite last gen games.
Yeah. I always found it more beautiful artistically and the graphics were fair so it always drew me in aesthetically. If they re-release it and add DLC for the "last world"(the broken stone in the Nexus) then it would be absolutely insane. A graphics revamp would be astounding as well.
Not a bad run for an online game.
And to think that an european release wasn't originally planned. It's the only game that I ever imported.
Sad, no more Acid Cloud and Scraping Spear trolling... P. S.: Funny thing is, servers will be online for 9 years, all without microtransactions and any server upkeep fees. Yet much bigger companies like 2k, Activision, EA, Ubisoft can't do that.
Again? Wasn’t this supposed to happen a few years ago?
Kept getting pushed back due to fan support,occasional sales and emails.
The game that started all, I'm gonna visit Boletaria one last time :(
i thought servers went down a long time ago? still sad to see it go. good times...
I guess that also means we won't be seeing a remaster of this gem 😶
Why not? Could be shutting the PS3 version down to make room for the PS4 servers.
I hope you're right... but nothing really leads to that conclusion
True but Sony do own the IP so they could do if they want. The souls series is big now. Remastering the game that kicked of the souls series and allowing new players to experience it is worth it.
One of my most prized platinum trophies. I love this game :(
Me too, and one of the hardest.
I was surprised when I jumped on earlier this year and saw it still running. But, as great as it was, the game itself is still awesome.
Some souls streamers are thinking because Atlus Sony and From plan to shutdown ALL the servers at the same that this may actually be the signs of a potential remake coming soon.
I played through Demon's Souls again last week and there was not the slightest indication that anyone was online. RIP Demon's Souls :*(
I'm going to get a PS3 just to play my downloaded copy again. I really wish I could have Souls games on my Switch.
One of my all time favorite games. Put 1000 hours into it.
i thought it had already gone offline?
You can still get the Platinum :)
Perfect time for Sony to announce a PS4 remaster at PSX. Us Souls fans who have been with you since Day 1 have been waiting!!!!! Best game in the series.
EA would have done this about five years ago.
A full remake of Demon's Souls on PS4 would be so awesome.
Guess that another playthrough is in order.
:'( My favourite game of last gen
I thought they turned it off years ago? Did they turn it back on after the success of the Dark Souls series or something?
