Bluepoint Games just released a gameplay trailer featuring the remake of Demon’s Souls during Sony’s live streaming event last Wednesday.
Demon’s Soul, a recently confirmed launch title for the PlayStation 5, was revealed in June. Sony stated that this remake has been “entirely rebuilt from the ground up and masterfully enhanced” exclusively for the next-gen console.
The classic Demon’s Souls was launched in 2009 for the PlayStation 3. Back then, the action RPG boasted its next-gen game designs and visuals which focused on providing a challenging gameplay experience set in a dark medieval European scenery.
Players take the role of a warrior traveling across the kingdom of Boletaria – a continent covered in fog and is occupied by demons. Players must defeat the demons roaming around the kingdom and consume their souls in order to become more powerful before battling an ancient demon called the Old One.

Demon’s Souls’ bizarre gameplay and its revolutionary multiplayer mode helped it attract a massive fan base despite it having a dull design. The favorable outcome of this game inspired the Dark Souls franchise and aided game director Hidetaka Miyazaki to rise to power as the president of FromwSoftware.
