Demon's Soul was the first iteration of the series that led on to the hugely successful Dark Souls franchise and Sony have just released a trailer for their Demon's Souls remake from Bluepoint Games.This recreation aims to duplicate the challenging brutality of the original through a system built entirely from the ground up, enhanced with what they're calling "Fractured Mode".

Update: Kotaku has reported that Demon's Souls is not coming to PC after contact with a Sony representative. Sony explicitly suggested that PC releases would help grow its business last month, saying in its 2020 corporate report that “we will explore expanding our 1st party titles to the PC platform, in order to promote further growth in our profitability.” While we’re not sure they’re first party, it wouldn’t have been weird if Final Fantasy XVI and Demon’s Souls had come to PC. Demon's Souls is a challenging third-person action game, putting players in a creepy world filled with intimidating enemy creatures.Playing as an unnamed hero sent to rid a fantasy kingdom of never-ending darkness, you'll struggle to survive among the wealth of hazards and dangers.

Some players may enjoy rushing into battle with a hefty sword, while others might prefer the use of magic. But Sony didn’t reply to questions from The Verge asking whether Demon’s Souls would be a timed PS5 exclusive and might end up on PC later.
