FromSoftware is working hard on their first big original game since 2015's Bloodborne — the long-awaited Elden Ring — but it doesn't stop Sony from producing a PS5-exclusive remake of the Japanese developer's award-winning Demon's Souls. That's right, the father of the masocore genre will return reimagined for PS5.
The next-gen Demon's Souls remake is being developed by SIE Japan Studio (The Last Guardian, Knack II) and Bluepoint Games, the Austin-based studio responsible for Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Gravity Rush Remastered, and the critically acclaimed remake of 2006's cult-classic Shadow of the Colossus.
Although the remake probably won't be released anytime soon — PS5 will hit stores this holiday season and it doesn't sound like Bluepoint's take on Demon's Souls will be the cutting-edge system's launch title — Sony has already confirmed that the recently announced production will let all gamers choose between two totally different graphics modes while playing: one prioritising frame rate, and one focused solely on fidelity.
Furthermore, Demon's Souls will feature not only improved shadow effects and hi-res textures, but also ray tracing, allowing players to marvel at the dark beauty of the ruined kingdom of Boletaria like never before.
Without further ado, take a look at the reimagined Demon's Souls in its announcement trailer down below:
