Sony have released a second gameplay trailer from the stunning looking Demon’s Souls remake for PlayStation 5. A launch title and exclusive for Sony’s next-gen console, Demon’s Souls will be out on 12th November in the US and select other regions, and 19th November in most other parts of the world, including the UK.
There’s plenty of battling through the cramped confines of this trailer, contrasting with the gameplay that was shown in the first gameplay trailer that Sony released last month. Also in contrast to that trailer, the player looked like they knew a bit more of what they needed to do when facing off against the boss characters in the game – this makes sense, since that trailer was set at the beginning of the game.
The second trailer journeys to Stonefang, one of the five different realms of Demon’s Souls, where caverns of molten lava light up the weapon forges. Here, you’ll face off against the Armored Spider and Flamelurker, both of which feature in the trailer.
What many will take away from it, just as with previous trailers, is just how impressive the game in its grandest moments, really showing off what the PS5 is capable of, and the mastery of Bluepoint in remaking classic titles.

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.
