Game Overview

Demon’s Souls Remake is a next-generation console recreation of the acclaimed Demon’s Souls action role-playing game released exclusively for the Playstation 3 in 2009. The game became famous for introducing a unique brand of punishingly difficult gameplay which would go on to define succeeding titles in the Souls series.

Story

Demon's Souls Remake - Walkthrough and Guide

Demon’s Souls is set in the cursed kingdom of Boletaria where a powerful demonic entity known as The Old One unleashes a deathly black fog that begins to engulf all of the land. A host of other demons and unholy creatures also appear, destroying the living and turning them into soulless monsters.

The player, after arriving in a mysterious sanctuary called the Nexus after death, is bound by fate to defeat the demonic threat and bring The Old One back to its slumber.

Gameplay

Demon's Souls Remake - Walkthrough and Guide

Demon’s Souls takes the player on a journey across Boletaria where they will encounter waves of challenging enemies and bosses before facing The Old One. The game begins by letting players create and customize their character’s appearance and starting class, the latter of which determines their initial stats and default equipment.

Combat

Demon's Souls Remake - Walkthrough and Guide

Players expend stamina to perform actions such as attacking with weapons, blocking and parrying, dodging, and sprinting. The stamina used up for each attack depends on the type of weapon equipped, with heavier weapons requiring more stamina for each swing.

Stamina gradually recovers when not performing any of the actions mentioned above, though its recovery speed depends on the weight of equipment worn. The heavier the player’s weight, the slower stamina will regenerate. Managing stamina, therefore, is essential to combat as running out of it renders the player helpless and vulnerable to incoming attacks.

Equipment

Demon’s Souls features a myriad of equipment to help the player take on enemies as they travel the Kingdom of Boletaria. Various weapons and magic can be used to fight enemies while different pieces of armor worn for defense. Shields can also be equipped to block or parry incoming physical attacks. Casting spells and miracles require tools such as catalysts and talismans. Rings, meanwhile, can be worn to increase character stats or gain special effects.

Leveling

Players level up by spending souls acquired from defeating enemies and bosses throughout the game. Leveling up is done by upgrading any of the eight stats (vitality, intelligence, endurance, strength, dexterity, magic, faith, and luck). The type of stats that the player greatly affects gameplay, as it will determine the weapons, armor, and magic that they can use, ultimately defining their playstyle as they progress through the story.

Boss Battles
