It gives an overview of many details we’ve previously learned, like the expanded Character Creator, but also details many of the improvements PS5 owners will be able to experience on November 12, 2020.
This gameplay walkthrough shows players the Nexus – Demon’s Souls main hub – and how quick the load times are getting players into a level. Moore also discusses how players can choose to play Demon’s Souls in Performance Mode, which runs at 60FPS with Dynamic 4K, or in Cinematic Mode, which runs the game at a more “cinematic 4K” at 30 FPS.
The team at Bluepoint Games also added “thousands” of new sound effects for Tempest 3D audio that will immerse owners of headsets like Sony’s Pulse 3D Wireless headset like never before.
The DualSense will also make combat feel “grittier and darker,” and will have players feeling “steel clash against steel” or the “crackle of a fireball” before it’s cast against an enemy.
It was also discussed how the score of the original was rearranged by a 120-piece orchestra at AIR Studios in London, how all the original code was used to preserve the feel of the original while new animations will add flourish, and much more.
We also got a first look at the Dirty Colossus boss, and it gives adventures a look at another one of the horrors they must face if they undertake this challenging journey.
