According to The Washington Post, Demon’s Souls will include over 180 help videos available through PS5’s new Activities feature, which Sony says is designed to “remove barriers to gameplay” by enabling players to bring up hints without leaving a game.
Activities are displayed in the form of on-screen cards which also highlight new gameplay opportunities and allow users to jump directly into levels or challenges they want to play.
“You can feel metal strike metal,” he told The Washington Post. “You can feel it in your hands when you make a perfect parry to give you the counterattack. You can feel the block was correct. I hit home. I felt it hit home. I know I gave that boss damage, and I can get out there, move back and wait for their attack to come in. So it actually makes the gameplay better and it makes the game feel a little bit easier.”
Moore also labelled the PS5’s high-speed SSD a “game changer” for Demon’s Souls.
“With the original I think that the frustration that the game had didn’t come from the dying or the challenges,” he said. “It came from the long load times waiting to get back into the game to take revenge and get your souls back and carry on with your adventure, Now? Your character dies and you’re right back in.”
Sony published over five minutes of Demon’s Souls gameplay last week.
