Over 10 years ago, developers From Software created the cult classic PS3 title, Demon’s Souls. Because of the challenging nature of the title and its mysterious and intriguing lore; Demon’s Souls created a legacy of difficulty in gaming that has pervaded video game culture since its release in 2009. Now, with a new generation on the horizon, From Software has taken the time to reanalyze their first outing and recreate the intensity for a modern audience. Keeping the same name as the original, the PS5 is set to receive the new Demon’s Souls remake, releasing this December. The title is receiving a digital deluxe edition to give players a head start on their travels through Boletaria’s expansive worlds.
The Demon’s Souls bundle provides new players with a plethora of armor and equipment to help get you started on your journey. The bundle includes multiple materials for crafting and enhancing, this will offer a good stepping off point for players wanting to experience the challenge but be well equipped for the fight. The included souls such as the Renowned Warrior and Legendary Hero soul are powerful materials for future upgrades or enormous amounts of Souls. While all the items are available for collecting and looting found in the base game, the inclusion in Demon’s Souls digital deluxe edition provides a nice jumping-off point for newcomers to soul-like games and their difficulty curves.
With a full digital version of the game and soundtrack included, the extra $20 is a very lucrative offer for those looking to adventure through Boletaria. Although, on top of the already increased base price to $70, the bundle is all additive to the base game’s challenging nature. Demon’s Souls remake will be available on December 12th this year, launching exclusively on the PlayStation 5.
