It has no problem letting you know this right from the start of the game. I won't say how, but there are specific conditions that you must meet to get to the Nexus that acts as your hub world in the game. However, I do not feel that the difficulty comes from broken or cheap game mechanics. Instead it makes you learn and understand your surroundings, enemies, and abilities. If you die, it is most likely that you aren't playing the game correctly or were impatient. This isn't your typical action game, so you cannot just rush in and cut your way trough the enemies. Even the most basic enemies can kill you if you are not careful. Demon's Souls takes patience, which is why I think a lot of people are finding it to be a very hard game. So if you don't have a lot of patience, don't like doing your fair share of grinding, or if you like your games quick and easy then you probably aren't going to enjoy Demon's Souls.
