The first look at gameplay from Demon Souls was shown off at the PlayStation 5 showcase a few days ago. Here's why we are excited for it.
Because it's a full blown next-gen from the ground up remake of one of the best games ever made, what more could anybody want?
This. It has legendary status among gamers for a reason. Technology has come a long way since, and we now get to combine the two! Newcomers in particular are in for a real treat!
Having finished it back at release on PS3 (I even imported it from the US as it didn't release in Australia initially), I am excited to play again but hope it has some significant changes, fresh content, updated mechanics as it does show its age being the original souls game.
Significant changes like what?
I wonder if we’ll finally be able to access the broken arch stone? Surprise new level?
When I first ordered it 12 years back I didnt like it, when I really got into it, I loved it and didn't get up until I got the platinum trophy for it. Flame lurker still haunts me sometimes. And that crystal lizard farming with 1 in a mil drop rate. Cant wait to do it all again with no load times, next get graphics and higher fps.
Agreed. The 6th area they never released in Retail would be nice. Few more bonfires on select runs would also be nice, as dying was worse than the boss. My prediction is they will make some fixes, but it will be controversial with fanboys bitching and whining about how it "ruined the game". I pre-ordered the game so far for $830. Comes with a PS5 ;)
Hope it comes with more than just a ps5 for $830
To Stevej336: Canadian Prices. $630 for the PS5 plus tax. My PS5 cost me $705. Then another $90 for the game pre-order. I should have said $795, not $830.
Everything about Demons Souls screams next gen - something that cant be said for many supposed next gen titles. Souls games now have a cult following and DS is the one many haven't played. This is going to be HUGE for Sony and PS5. The marketing should be hitting overdrive around this game.
It's the only reason why I'm buying the PS5 at launch. Cannot wait to play this game.
If I'm not half hp when hollowed I'll be disappointed and relieved at the same time I'll play it blind like I did the original even if I'm late to the party this time
Ive heard great things. Not sure what to expect. But im excited.,
You’ve never played or watched a video of a Souls game before? Wow.
So what if he hasn't? All the better then, because there are some awesome moments in this game that are best left unspoiled.
I dont watch video games. I avoid it as much as possible. For instance this recent video on n4g article comparing the game on PS3 vs PS5, i was really curious so i watched maybe 20 seconds of it and stopped myself.
Fair enough dude, it’s just odd hearing somebody that hangs out at N4G saying they don’t know what to expect from a Souls game! I’ll tell you what to expect though, expect to die. A lot. Like loads.
I didn't play the first on PS3 because I didn't have any interest in it but after playing Bloodborne & DS3 I definitely want to play the remake that started it all far as the Souls games.
See you all in Valley of Defliement 5-2 :)
Just got through it for the first time a few days ago and it was rough. Makes Blighttown look like a walk in the park lol.
It looks amazing. I can’t wait to play it. Have it preorderd with my PS5 from Amazon.
Loved the first one. Can’t wait for the remake!
My favorite of the souls series
