Demon's Souls Remake Announced For PS5

Sony gave us our first look at a ton of PlayStation 5 games during its hour-long PS5 reveal event, but one of the biggest surprises was saved for near the end: a remake of From Software’s classic Demon’s Souls.

Originally released for PlayStation 3 back in 2009, Demon’s Souls is the precursor to the Dark Souls series. Much like the titles that would follow, the game is renowned for its blend of methodical combat and unforgiving difficulty.

Not many details were announced about the Demon’s Souls remake, but we did get a look at the updated graphics, and Sony confirmed it is being developed by Bluepoint Studios–which handled 2018’s Shadow of the Colossus remake–and Japan Studio. According to the video description on YouTube, the Demon’s Souls remake features a new “Fractured Mode.” Players will also be able to choose between two graphics modes in the remake: “one focused on fidelity, and one focused on frame rate.”

Demon’s Souls was greeted with critical acclaim back when it first released. We gave the game a 9/10 in our original Demon’s Souls review and said, “This is an uncompromising RPG of the highest order–and a brilliant, atmospheric, and visionary one. It is at once old-fashioned and innovative, a stubbornly difficult dungeon crawler loaded with wholly unique mechanics.”

We got to see a ton of other PS5 games during the reveal event, including Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Resident Evil VIII. You can catch up on more announcements in our PS5 reveal event recap.
