Earlier this evening Sony showed a trailer for the Demon’s Souls Remake and it ended with the text “Not available on other consoles for a limited time. Also available on PC”, so it is a timed exclusive and on also PC, right?
Well as it turns out, no.
Sony has told Kotaku that the trailer was a mistake and attributed the incorrect information to “human error”, confirming that Demon’s Souls will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5.
The full Demon’s Souls description reads:
From JAPAN Studio and Bluepoint Games comes a remake of the PlayStation classic, Demon’s Souls. This remake invites players to experience the original brutal challenge, completely rebuilt from the ground up and masterfully enhanced with a new “Fractured Mode.” In addition to beautiful shadow effects and ray tracing, players can choose between two graphics modes while playing: one focused on fidelity, and one focused on frame rate. Coming to PlayStation 5.
Way back in 2010 when Demon’s Souls released for PS3, DJ-Katy wrote the review and said:
Demon’s Souls is a very good game. It’s not a fabulous game. On the one hand, it’s hard to recommend to anyone who isn’t a hardcore RPG fan or who doesn’t have a mountain of patience at their disposal. On the other hand, Demon’s Souls rarely puts a foot wrong – the game mechanics are tough but fair. If you learn from your mistakes, you will progress. You don’t die from random issues or problems with the game itself, only your own error as a rule. Really, all this means is that it’s a return to the old days when dieing in a game meant losing all your stuff and having to start the level again. It’s just that the levels are very, very long.
