Demon’s Souls was the PS3 classic that gave birth to the likes of Dark Souls, Sekiro and Bloodborne. Now, it’s being introduced to a whole new generation with an ambitious remake by Bluepoint Games.
From the few glimpses we’ve caught of the remake, it looks fantastic, and was shown once against during the recent PS5 Showcase. It will be a flagship launch title for the new console, and will be an easy excuse for hardcore Soulsborne fans to jump into the next generation with little hesitation.

Demon’s Souls Remake news – You can choose from 4K and performance modes on PS5
The official listing for Demon’s Souls has been updated, providing a more comprehensive idea of how exactly it will play on PS5. According to the listing, players will be able to choose from two different modes: 4K Mode and High Frame Rate Mode. The purpose of each setting is rather obvious, although it seems that Bluepoint’s latest project won’t be capable of reaching the 4k/60fps benchmark some might be hoping for.
Demon’s Souls Digital Deluxe Edition has also been revealed, and will include the following bonuses for those who decide to pre-order or pick up the more expensive offering:
- Red-Eye Knight Armour
- Boletarian Royalty Armour
- Hoplite Shield
- Ritual Blade
- Original Soundtrack

- Storied Warrior Soul
- Ring of Longevity

Demon’s Souls Remake release date – when is it coming out?
The latest trailer didn’t show a launch title for the title, but we’ll be sure to update this article once we know more.
Demon’s Souls Remake trailer – how does it look?
Shown during the recent PS5 Showcase, you can watch the latest trailer for Demon’s Souls below. Be warned, it’s a little bit spooky, I guess it is almost that time of year.
Demon’s Souls gameplay – what are the big changes on PS5?
If we’re being brutally honest, Demon’s Souls hasn’t aged particularly well. It was FromSoftware’s first foray into what would become the iconic ‘Soulsborne’ genre, and so a number of its mechanics and features have been refined and enhanced in the years since.
Knowing this, we sincerely hope that Bluepoint Games has taken the original experience and made it so the Kingdom of Boletaria stands up against its modern siblings. The combat of Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice have set massive standards for the world of real-time combat, and with any luck Demon’s Souls will stand proudly alongside them.
On the PlayStation Blog following its announcement, Sony said that Demon’s Souls Remake will be a “ remake of the PlayStation classic” which supports 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.”

Demon’s Souls, unlike its successors, featured a number of different levels which were accessed from a sprawling hub known as “The Nexus” which featured its own cast of distinct characters and environments. It evolved alongside the unfolding story, and each locale you travelled to was grim, adventurous and perfectly unpredictable in its ample challenge. We hope this identity is intact in the remake, although Bluepoint are free to make their own mark on the cult classic.
