I’ve been waiting to write these words for quite some time now and with the PlayStation 5 launching this week, it only seems fitting that the developers of one of the most beloved PlayStation 3 titles and one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 launch titles share some in-depth information about their upcoming title, the remake of Demon’s Souls. They have uploaded a 12-minute video on the official PlayStation YouTube channel which outlines some of the changes as well as what remained the same when making the transition from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 5.
For starters, the game looks absolutely gorgeous. The team involved with the title really outdid themselves in this department. They took the initial PlayStation 3 title, updated the graphics engine, and made completely new assets and animations for the game. Not to mention the game runs locked at 60fps 4K on performance mode and 30fps 4K with Ray Tracing enabled. Let’s not even start to talk about how much they put into the sound and music in the game, carefully reconstructing the original soundtrack with a newer more updated feel to it as well as making hundreds of new sound effect recordings that take advantage of the new Tempest Audio that is part of the PlayStation 5 architecture.
With the PlayStation 5 launching this Thursday, you can be sure that there will be a bunch of news coming out about the title as well as what the PlayStation 5 can actually do with one of the years most anticipated titles. Personally, I have to wait a little bit to get my hands on Demon’s Souls as well as a PlayStation 5 system, but you best bet that once I’m able to get a system when they’re back in stock, this is going to be one of the first titles if not THE first title that I pick up for the system.
