With the release of the PlayStation 5, the Demon’s Souls remake has finally arrived. The game is largely a one-to-one remake of the original game, with graphics and performance made for the next generation of gaming.
However, one player appears to have discovered an easter egg inside the game that proves that the development team did actually add new content to Demon’s Souls, and now it’s up to the players to find out how to open it.
The reviews are pouring in for Demon’s Souls, and critics and fans alike appear to be thoroughly enjoying the PlayStation 5 remake of From Software’s action-packed role-playing game. One minor issue is that the game doesn’t add anything new; it is generally a remake of the original game without any fresh content. However, there is indeed a brand new secret in Demon’s Souls which involves a secret door.
Does anyone know how to open this door in 1-3? from demonssouls
Reddit user u/OrganizedBonfire uploaded a clip on the r/demonssouls page displaying that he found a hidden door in the game. The author asked if anyone was familiar with the secret passageway, and commenters immediately noticed that it was indeed something new.
The door is hidden at the back of an illusionary divider, something that wasn’t present in the area in the original game. The fanbase is enthusiastic in giving walkthroughs and tips for Demon’s Souls to assist many players, and fans have looked through every nook and cranny of the original game but the area appears to be entirely new.
Leading up to the release of the new Souls games, a lot of fans were frustrated to learn that Demon’s Souls will have no new content, based on dataminers. A lot of gamers expected that the 6th Archstone will finally be able to be explored, but it appears as if that would not be the case. However, new secrets and areas have been installed in the game after all, and not the community is hyped about what these new things could be.
Fans will want to learn about how Bluepoint Games managed this remake, one of the foremost remaster and remake developers in the gaming industry. So if the development team added something new, it would be exciting to know how they managed that with From Software, the original developers of the game.
Intriguingly, not only does the remake have new secrets and content, but a few things were also removed from the game in its PlayStation 5 version such as the cat icon that is something of a fan favorite.
Bluepoint Games appears to have had some privilege in remaking this 2009 classic hit. The result has now prompted the gaming community on a hunt to discover any existing secrets that the team might have integrated into the game.
