Gameplay

Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio showed off four and a half minutes of gameplay from the upcoming Demon's Souls remake during Sony's September 16 PS5 showcase. The game is a timed console exclusive, but will make its way to other platforms down the road.

Though the PS5 showcase on September 16 said the game would come to PC, Sony's now saying that was a mistake.

"Sony has told [us] the trailer claiming Demon’s Souls would be coming to PC and 'other consoles' was a mistake," Kotaku reports, "attributing the incorrect information to 'human error.' When we tried to further confirm that the game wasn’t coming to PC, the rep replied, 'Yes, it’s just PS5.'"

Release Date

Demon's Souls will be available for PS5 at launch on November 12.

What Is Demon's Souls?

Demon's Souls was a frustratingly difficult game originally created by FromSoftware.

The game was confusing and challenging to audiences and was therefore only released in Japan.

However, it soon gained a cult following and launched game director Hidetaka Miyazaki into the realms of history - and to President of FromSoftware.

However, FromSoftware is currently busy working on Elden Ring, leaving the remake duties to Bluepoint Games.

Prepare for next-level graphics - and next-level difficulty.
