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 http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/demons-souls/
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.

    • Don't crack your head up with migrating to PWCT by killing 5 Black Phantoms across the 5 worlds, because it might take AGES. Killing all 5 will only push your CT from PW to Neutral or from Neutral to PB: https://www.reddit.com/r/demonssouls/comments/k87bdk/not_able_to_reach_pwct_for_some_reason_how_many/
      In other words, migration from PBCT to PWCT requires 10(!) specific Black Phantoms to be killed, while only 5 are spawned during one NG.

      So if you (same as me), for example, have killed Ostrava to get the Mausoleum key (or because of other reasons have dropped your CT lower than Neutral), killing 5 Black Phantoms WILL NOT be enough to pull your CT back to PW.

      Instead of doing all of this, here is the Reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/twinkly/
      1. Create a post there, ask for "help with PWCT" and wait for anyone to agree to help.
      2. Launch the game but stay for a while to the main menu. At the "Network" settings tab select any server (region) that you think will be least populated. Each server will be marked with the nearest big town name. For example, select the server, which respective town local time is the deep night at the time you are doing this.
      3. At the same "Network" tab switch "password" to "ON" and set any easy password ("123edc").
      4. Go into the game in online mode.
      5. Prepare a few Stone of Ephemeral Eyes.
      5. Choose any Archstone you think will be least populated (for example, not "any-1"). No matter what -- be prepared to fight unwelcomed guests as soon as you have consumed the Stone of Ephemeral Eyes and so regained the human form.
      6. Warp to that Archstone.
      7. Tell the person who agreed to help you: World-Archstone number, server, and password.
      8. When he/she is ready -- consume the Stone of Ephemeral Eyes.
      9. Wait for that person to place the red summoning sign near that Archstone. So soon as you see the red summoning sign in the ground -- summon that person to you, wait for a while, kill when summoned.
      10. Repeat step #9 till you see your CT shift to PW (the icon on the left top side, it is being updated after each kill automatically, no need to warp anywhere else). Again, always be ready to fight back another player because they can invade you at any moment. Nothing serious if you die, just time spent for nothing (but if you win -- you get an increase to your CT towards PW).

        I’m happy for bluepoint becoming a member of PS but damn it they need to be allowed to patch the remake again, still so many little things that can be improved for the long term playability.

          Just wanted to say thanks to everyone enloved in making this site. I am new to this game and the site has been a massive help.

            Just to follow up from my earlier comment seen as I only highlighted the biggest negative, I’d say the best thing in the remake is combat. Feels absolutely amazing, the animations and weight to them are so on point that even the weapons that retained their original move sets like the long sword are so damn satisfying to use this time around.

              Remake is solid for the most part. The worst aspect has been the voice acting. It’s far weaker than the original, even the characters who have retuning voice actors feel completely flat this time around. There are some examples that feel unfair to criticise like the Dregling Merchant because the original was so distinct it would be near impossible to do it justice but aside from examples like that the rest feel a lot worse than they should have been.

                Why are there so many servers? The game is hard enough to get a chance to play because of the ps5 availability and the servers just split the online to the extreme right? Or is everyone still connected and I’m looking at it wrong? Seems like a drastic issue if you can only connect to people on the 1 of dozens of servers at a time

                  “Play has no limits”

                  Sony says as they follow it up with a launch title that has items limited to the deluxe edition. These fake hollow tag lines man they’re not even trying to be convincing at this stage it’s just a fixed part of the marketing at this point, easy stuff.

                    Wenn öffnet sich das Tor zu einem Boss? Leider öffnet sich bei mir das Tor zum ersten Boss nicht, obwohl ich alles Abkürzungen freigespielt habe

                      Anyone else refuse to buy the deluxe edition? I could afford it that’s okay but I couldn’t bring myself to do it after so many years playing the souls series without those games having this kind of thing.

                        I gotta admit, I originally stopped looking for the ps5 in January and over the next few months I started to hate the “hardest thing is getting a ps5” meme because I assumed at this point it would be easy to buy and that people were dragging that meme trying to be funny when it was no longer relevant. Then I decided to go ahead and try buy a ps5 6 months later and holy **** it’s JUST as scarce today as it was at release. This pretty much means that Demon’s Souls hasn’t even reached its peak yet regardless of whether people like the online or not.

                          I wish bluepoint had taken the SotC route and left the music mostly untouched or I don’t know remastered it a bit to make it sound smoother to suit the new graphics etc. It’s no longer distinct from the other souls games which I think is a shame regardless of preference. At least it isn’t even close to the pure tragedy that was the ratchet and clank remake. DeS PS5 still acknowledges the existence of the original OST.

                            Demon's Souls is hardest game in the series. I cant even kill 1st enemy. Because I have no PS5 to play on.
                            Thank you scalpers.
                            Thank you Sony for not delaying PS5's release untill you will produce enough of them.

                              It would have been so much better if they got rid of the sixth archstone from the nexus all together and placed Latria’s one in the top middle. Always feel that bit of sadness when I see the broken archstone knowing we’ll never get to see the content.
