Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Demon’s Souls
For those Dark Souls fans who have yet to try its predecessor, the equally humbling Demon’s Souls, you will soon be able to snag a digital copy. Atlus has announced that, beginning next week on January 8, Demon’s Souls will be available on PSN for $19.99. To celebrate, Atlus will be hosting a World Tendency Event from January 8-14, which will set the servers to Pure White so that players can explore new areas and meet special non-playable characters.
Atlus has announced that the North American online servers for Demon’s Souls, originally scheduled to be shut down at the end of May, will remain online “for the foreseeable future.” The company stated that the servers could see further extensions, “provided user activity and interest remain constant.”
From Software’s Dark Souls, follow-up to 2009’s Demon’s Souls, is now available for the 360 and PS3. The Namco Bandai-published action-RPG continues the original’s blend of off- and online play, with players joining in or hurting others as they make their way through the Northern Realms. And, of course, it’s difficult. Very difficult.
Dark Souls, the 360 and PS3 spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, is only a few months out. To make sure October 4 is seared into gamers’ brains everywhere, Namco Bandai has sent along some additional screenshots to get everyone suitably excited for From Software’s follow-up.
