218w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that Demon's Souls is officially released for Sony's PlayStation 3 console.
To quote: The Kingdom of Boletaria is now open to you, brave adventurers: Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 is now available in retailers across North America.
For months leading up to its release, we've emphasized the game's difficulty level, striving in every instance not to misrepresent the game and to ensure that curious gamers are not caught off guard by the challenges that await them. That said, we don't want anyone to steer clear of the game because of what they've heard. If that is not the perfect segue into some starting tips for new heroes, then I don't know what is.
Mild Spoiler Alert:
Your first task in Demon's Souls, before even jumping into the game world, is to create your character. Demon's Souls offers 10 different player classes, each with different starting stats and equipment.
Unlike many RPGs, Demon's Souls does not punish players for choosing something out of line with their play style. Regardless of which class you pick, you'll be able to eventually do anything another class is more capable of at the start; all it takes is a little extra work.
220w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has posted the second part of their Demon's Souls PS3 video walkthrough series on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: AtlusA.R.A.M. here with part two of our Demon's Souls video walkthrough series. While our first part served primarily as an introduction to the game for newcomers, focusing on basics, this second video dives headlong into the most significant, most discussed, most acclaimed feature in the upcoming PlayStation 3-exclusive action RPG: online functionality.
Where most games offer multiplayer as a separate mode, something detached from the main experience, Demon's Souls takes the single-player games from online PS3 owners across the country, treats them as individual worlds in an interconnected universe, and allows the worlds to bridge from time to time, leading to some exciting cooperative and competitive interaction between players, in addition to the awesome messaging and bloodstain features.
There's never really been a gaming experience quite like Demon's Souls, and we're excited to be able to show you, in detail, exactly why that's the case. Demon's Souls releases on October 6 in two flavors: standard ($59.99) and deluxe ($69.99).
