Demon’s Souls Gets 5 More Minutes of Beautiful PlayStation 5 Gameplay

Sony and Bluepoint Games have shown off even more gameplay footage of the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive, Demon’s Souls. Five minutes of footage of the depressingly breathtaking remake were published online, with additional information detailed in a PlayStation.Blog post. The video is both grand and grotesque, putting a spotlight on the location Stonefang and on the Armored Spider and Flamelurker boss fights, but you can watch the carnage for yourself below.

Gavin Moore, creative director at Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios External Development, wrote about the footage in the blog post, giving thoughts on Demon’s Souls’ Stonefang location:

 In these tight tunnels and molten caverns, even the environment is your enemy. You will need to adapt to the situation, understanding when to press your attack at close-quarters and when to punish your enemy from afar. Even so, skill and reactions have their limits, and proper equipment and preparation could be the difference between victory and defeat. And remember that whatever the outcome, every death has meaning and will make the eventual success all the sweeter on your journey to become the Slayer of Demons.

Demon’s Souls was unveiled as a remake on PlayStation 5 this past June. The FromSoftware original launched all the way back in 2008, making the new visuals especially enticing. In September, we got our first somewhat extended look at gameplay, with that video showing off the early portions of the game. Sony has clarified that it has no plans to bring Bluepoint’s Demon’s Souls to PC.

Demon’s Souls arrives as a launch title for PlayStation 5 on Nov. 12.
