After months of speculation, Bluepoint's Demon's Souls remake was finally revealed during today's PlayStation stream. It wasn't much more than a teaser trailer, showcasing some of Demon's Souls' famous bosses along with beautiful landscapes, but it hinted at a truly impressive technical showcase for the platform.
Now Sony has followed up with some additional screenshots, which offer a much better impression how the actual game will look. Behold:
The screenshots mostly showcase the main character's relationship to the environments, but we do get a glimpse of a boss in the final shot. It speaks to the characteristically spectacular art and environmental design of Bluepoint Games, which should be a large step up from the frequently rickety engine used by FromSoftware.
In addition to the facelift, Demon's Souls will reportedly feature a new "Fractured Mode," as well as visual modes geared toward fidelity and frame rate. Expectations will be high, as Bluepoint is the studio behind the top-notch remasters of Uncharted and Shadow of the Colossus.
Demon's Souls was originally released for PlayStation 3 back in 2009, where it unexpectedly found a devoted fanbase. It would last until its servers were finally turned off in 2018. While it was ultimately overshadowed by Dark Souls and Bloodborne, the title still has its fans. Bluepoint's remake is an opportunity for Demon's Souls to shine again.
There's no word on a release date for the remake, nor any other information, really. You can read a full recap of today's PS5 announcements here.
