Demon's Souls Remake Changes

  • Two performance modes: Players can choose cinematic mode which offers native 4K with 30 fps, or performance mode offering 4K with 60 fps for “smoother animation”.
  • Character and enemy models have been reworked
  • The Remake version will feature a new weapon called Reaper Scythe, as part of the Pre-order bonus. There are also other weapons, items and armor that are not in the original
  • The Remake is also enhancing the Online experience, bringing the multiplayer number from 4 players to 6 players, similarly to what was done with the Dark Souls Remaster.
  • Carry Capacity: Another key change will be encumbrance, in the original the amount of healing grass consumables a player could carry were in the hundreds, with no real punishment. However in the remake it will limit the supply available, as well as more powerful versions such a Full Moon Grass, will weigh more than the less potent versions. This means you’re going to think twice about how much you keep in your inventory especially when to comes to PVP, giving more balance to fights.
  • Fasting Loading Times: The experience of playing on a brand new console will mean a different experience when it comes loading times. PS5 boasts faster loading time with the use of SSD, Moore ensure you will “no longer have to wait three minutes for the game to load after you’ve died,” meaning you can jump right back in it and alleviate at least some of the frustration when it comes to dying. Moore shared in an interview with Gamespot that there is now “instantaneous loading from the nexus into a level”.
  • New haptic feedback from the DualSense controller, this gives a whole new experience as you gain new visual, audio and feel to the game: "when you do a parry, you feel it in your hands before you kind of visually see it, and it’s that split-second reaction time, it gives you that little edge that you need, that can actually make the game slightly easier than people think"

  • New Photo Mode: The game features a photo mode with many different filters
  • Original soundtrack was recorded digitally only, so the remake rerecorded the soundtrack with a full orchestra consisting of 120 members, with a score by Shunsuke Kida. There was also a full choir, complete with pipe organ.
  • Pure Bladestone drop rate has been adjusted.
  • Omnidirectional rolling: One improvement that gets a modern update is the addition of omnidirectional moves, players can roll in eight directions oppose to the original four. This will change a lot to how players handle situations, and adds a “quality-of-life improvements to the game that people expect.”
  • New Difficulty: While there isn’t levels of difficulty, you can still face a further challenge by taking on Fractured Mode. This mode will throw your world a little chaos by mirroring the world and reversing the map.

Demon's Souls Official Website

Official JP website
Demon's Souls is an IP developed by Sony & Fromsoftware, that brought back the medieval setting of the King's Field series. Announced as a Playstation 3 exclusive at TGS 2008, the game bought Fromsoftware & Sony Japan studios

The game is an Action RPG with focus on strategic combat choices, offering melee and ranged mechanics as well as magic gameplay. Featuring character customization, online components and deep RPG concepts, the game kickstarted a new genre, referred to as "Soulsborne" series.


 Demon's Souls Gameplay Concepts


We have five key criteria on which the difficulty level is judged. We want any player to be able to clear any obstacle simply by learning from mistakes and paying close attention. Then, the reasons for failure must always be clear and understandable. Every problem must have multiple solutions, so that players can tackle it whichever way they want. The game’s controls can never be a factor from which difficulty is derived. And finally, we want to make sure that there’s the possibility for miracles to happen; those magical moments that spread stories outside of the confines of the game world.

      For the few souls left still playing the original version or for those who have returned to it before they get a ps5 (myself included) the demon’s souls wikidot covers everything in the original game and we can use fextras for the remake

        It was a bad idea to not include the 6th archstone. Their reasoning that it would tamper with the original vision of the game is very flawed because all of the redesigns have already done that and the 6th world was the perfect opportunity for BP to put their own mark on the game. It would have been a better decision in every way and I have to wonder if they planned to but Sony denied it to keep the full focus on graphics. It just doesn’t seem right to me

          I’d rather look at the remake as Bluepoint’s own take on the game rather than a faithful one as most people see it because the visuals, characters and music are so different whereas the gameplay is the only truly faithful part but I think that was out of fear rather than respect for the title. You can’t call it faithful as a whole when only one aspect of it remained the same. If you look at it this way it’s a lot easier not to get frustrated at the changes imo

            Can you guys separate the wiki for Demons Souls PS3 and Demons Souls PS5. A lot of concepts, factors, and details about the game do not apply to both.

              "No one wishes to go on"

              The literal definition of whoever complains about the remake with their nostalgia googles.

                I can’t believe they kept that critical mechanic in where the opponent’s HP is drained instantly rather than a portion per hit during the animation like every game that came after. Some of the new ripostes bluepoint designed are really cool and lengthy but they’re spoiled by this and seem pointless to have more than one hit.

                    This game were changed so little that it should be called Demon's Souls Remaster. Not remake.
                    Also PS5 has no real exclusive yet. Spiderman Miles Morales is 8 hours long and availiable also for PS4.
                    Demons Souls Remake is so close to PS3 game that its impossible to all it exclusive since uts just UHD version of DeS.

                    So if you didnt grabbed PS5 and feel butthurt for not having it it shouldnt be big butthurt. Especially that all these 70$/80E* titles (which also have special more expensive versions (+microtransactions which make them even more expensive) will become cheaper as peoples will start to sell them to pawn shops or regular shops will realize that many titles have more copies than consoles availiable.

                    *(according to Sony Europe is more rich than USA. I guess Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Moldowa, Kosovo, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Albania, Serbia, Belarus, Montenegro and other filthy rich countries should send more humanitary missions to starving children of USA who cant afford 2 meals per day).

                          Why was the wiki for this game changed to cover the remake only? I'm talking about the pages for weapons, armors, etc. Only showing the icons and images from the remake when the designs are very different from the original. No plans to include original and remake versions of these side by side?

                            This remake puts Dark Souls “REMASTERED” to shame. Greedy Namco will never take a team on to remake Dark Souls, ever.

                              I’ve been negative about the remake because of the modernised music and especially the pre order exclusives which was a BS move but when I compare this to dark souls remastered ..... yeah it’s pretty clear which one was a cash grab and which one was a passionate project. Thank you Bluepoint!

                                IIRC, original Demon’s Souls had some weird bug where if you looted a chest or body and your inventory was full, that treasure disappeared completely and had no way of getting it back. I hope they fixed that.

                                  I’m completely divided by the remake footage. I love how faithful they were with the animations of both the character and enemies but there’s so many design appearance changes that were pointless. Fluted helm still looks nothing like the original even though it’s the most iconic thing from the game, latria corridors were less claustrophobic and dark and the mindflayer looked childish and why does the penetrator’s sword have a blood effect? Is that because he kills the fat official before the fight begins? It just looked terrible. Lastly the music for armored spider and flamelurker was terrible by comparison.
