Demon’s Souls is getting a $90 digital deluxe edition

Demon's Souls

Sony opened the floodgates on its launch lineup today, revealing special editions of Destruction AllStars, Sackboy: A Big Adventure and now Demon’s Souls.

The upcoming Demon’s Souls remake is getting a $90 digital deluxe edition that features special items that weren’t in the original PlayStation 3 game.

The package comes with the Hoplite Shield and Ritual Blade, the latter of which is an enormous cleaver. Both items are new playable weapons exclusive to the remake. Two new armor sets, Red-Eye Knight and Boletarian Armor, are also included with the bundle.

Players will also receive a bundle of items and accessories in the game, including a ring of longevity, preservation grains, and legendary hero souls. Many of the items weren’t in the original game, hinting that the remake has some entirely new mechanics that have yet to be announced. In addition to in-game goodies, the deluxe edition comes with an original soundtrack.

Fans who pre-order any edition of the game from the PlayStation Store receive the Reaper Scythe weapon. A blog post from Sony describes the weapon as “a pole weapon with a curved blade on one end that is so sharp that they say it can sever your soul from your body.”

Demon’s Souls will launch as a PlayStation 5 exclusive on November 12. Those who don’t want to spend $90 on the digital deluxe edition can get the standard game for $70, which is par for the course for next-generation games. All digital editions of the game are currently available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store.

However, Demon's Souls might be set for a November release.

Soulsborne No Hit Run - The End

From Software's game library is notoriously difficult, with games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne testing players' will to continue as they're killed over and over again. That is why it's so insane that one Twitch streamer managed to beat the entire Dark Souls series, Bloodborne, and even Demon's Souls without taking a single hit.

Connection slain — ‘Demon’s Souls’ servers die one final time in February
Yeah, the whole game is pretty much like this.

Dark Souls III and Bloodborne are among the best games developer From Software has ever released, but before the studio found widespread success with the Dark Souls series, its niche-release Demon's Souls managed to catch PlayStation 3 owners by surprise. Many of the studio's iconic gameplay features were established in the game, but if you wish to experience the full version of it, you better do so soon. Demon's Souls online servers are going offline in February.

On February 28, the online servers for Demon's Souls will be shut down. Though it is primarily a single-player game and can be fully completed without connecting online, a number of helpful features will cease to function. These include in-game messages and player death locations, as well as all multiplayer features. Not only will you no longer be able to invade another player's game to kill them, but you won't be able to get any outside help on difficult bosses. This could limit newcomers' ability to finish the game, as its difficulty rivals anything From Software has developed thus far.
