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.

      and sony lied to us. apparently...at least here in the US and over in the UK, you actually DON'T get to stream demon's souls ps3 version on ps4.

      it's listed in the classic catalogue on the ps+ part of the psn website but it is NOT listed ON ps4 in the classics OR streamable sections.

      and i WOULD emulate it but there's a few snags to that plan.

      1. the dev of rpcs3 is a hypocrite when it comes to emulation.
      2. i would need to buy a legit copy of the game and rip it myself in order to emulate it (i may as well just buy the console with it at that point which defeats the purpose of emulating it in the first place).
      3. if the dev's discord bot they use for scanning error logs detects you downloaded the game...NO TECH SUPPORT FOR YOU!

      SO... great job, soyny. you've screwed at least 2 whole nations out of getting to play this game!

        Hey everyone just need help getting pure white character tendency can anyone help me by invading me and letting me kill them a few times? Thank you very much!!

          I'm having problems using Blue Eye and Black Eye. Can anyone help with invader trophy and the a few invades so I can kill you for PWCT? I can help too. PSN is BenjiGilWil

            Does anyone have problems playing online? I centrum seem to be summon anyone and noone is summoning me. Im level 87 playing remake

            • 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.

                    • Anonymous

                      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.

                              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.

                                        I’d just like to point out that playing the original on the ps3 without servers is really interesting because the loneliness enhances the bleak depressive state of the world. Latria prison with no player messages or spectres roaming around? Now that’s some serious sh*t let’s go.

                                            Good remake in general but it baffles me to see people in discussions say things like “it’s just for graphical improvements they don’t need to do anything else” etc. This is a launch title for the PS5, a game that’s supposed to encourage people to get the new console and aside from good quality of life improvements there was no AI improvement, no additional Archstone when the basic structure of the cut content is in the original files for Bluepoint to work off and expand on with their own imagination, no improvement to the online which is already dying out as a result and no post launch support after the first patch which created some issues of it’s own like the absence of souls gained during MP. I get that the graphics are incredible but is this really how low the majority’s expectations have gotten? Once the graphics are on point the gameplay can be far from perfect and get away with it? I know I’m being negative but I just have to be honest here.

                                              The original code makes it a remaster.
                                              The rebuilt world makes it a remake.
                                              The aesthetic change makes it a reimagining.

                                              If it could strictly be one, which would you choose?

                                                Does the remake have the depth of field blur? Man that effect was one of the best things about 5-2 in the original because it added to the polluted look of the swamp and it was even easier to get lost in. Anybody?

                                                  FromSoft at their best. This game had the most memorable and brutal mechanics and npcs like world tendency and Mephistopheles. It’s unfortunate but the series popularity post Demon’s Souls was always going to have a huge impact on how strict and filtered the games would become over time. They’re all amazing and have their own stand out elements like DS1 world design, DS2 powerstancing + pvp, Bloodborne’s trick weapons and dungeon crawling etc but as a whole their less risky and much safer in design while DeS just does not care about rules and traditions. It’s the most interesting game of them all and I truly think all players should try to experience it in it’s entirety by going through all tendency events and npc quests in particular because there’s nothing like fighting the black world tendency phantoms and amped up additional enemies when you think you’ve already seen what the game has to offer. It also shows how difficult and unforgiving the game actually is as a whole if you’re willing to experience all of the optional and obscure stuff. It’s a one off gem of a game that had nothing to live up to when it originally came out. No shackles, nothing to lose and every reason to do whatever it wanted.

                                                        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

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.

                                                                    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.

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.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  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.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Unless they did it as a prank, the newest gameplay trailer is heavily implying that four directional rolling is returning. This is the number one thing they should not be faithful to the original with.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

I absolutely love them all but Demon’s has a permanent place at the top my all time list. I bought just the disc, used from a flea market vendor in early 2010 for $20 and still play it. It’s awesome that it’s being remastered and made a release title for the ps5. The game definitely deserves it

                                                                                          I’m not a huge fan of the remake trailer. I’m definitely a nit picker but there’s a lot of small details throwing me off ... the fluted set helm looking more like the DS3 knight helm possibly for mainstream reasons but I’m likely 100% wrong about that, the boss designs which are designed to look more dramatic than unique and the biggest nit pick of them all, the “come at me bro” shoulder back pose the character is pulling in every screenshot even though it was much calmer looking in the original. I just can’t take it seriously because it looks like it’s designed to be more epic and badass which isn’t the point of the original at all but hey this is a complete remake so who says it really has to be? Speaking of the word I will say one thing that I’m happy about no matter what else happens and that’s the fact that the first game in the series is the first to get an official remake! I think it’s well deserved attention.

I played 3xds with this character and still cant get the damn sword. Yes Dragon god is dead. Don't see pure white on top right stone fang(playing the game). I do see pure white on the picture to see your character tendency. My character tendency is pure black. I don't play online for pvp.

I don't want to be that guy, but I do like to see a games art design easily in these types of sites. The dark souls one wiki has a good thing going with the "hover to vew" thing in most of their lists, and I'm sure it would hep with someone who doesn't know what the enemies are called. Take your time and all. Your building A nice site and all, I know these thins take time. Just, maybe throw some placeholders in there until you get what you want.
