Games

Demon's Souls Playstation 3

ATLUS, the video game publishing brand of Index Digital Media, Inc., today announced that Demon’s Souls, the award-winning action RPG prequel to Dark Souls for PlayStation 3 (PS3) Computer Entertainment System, will be coming in downloadable form to the PlayStation Network (PSN) on 1/8/13 for $19.99.

To celebrate the release of Demon’s Souls on PSN, ATLUS is hosting a World Tendency Event for one week starting on 1/8/13 and ending on 1/14/13, setting the servers to Pure White. For those that haven’t played the game (or simply need a refresher), Pure White Tendency brings a number of changes to the game. For one, the game will be adjusted to an easier difficulty setting, where enemies will have decreased HP, attack power, and defense, while players will inflict more damage when attacking. Pure White Tendency is a rare occurance in the game so this is a great way for newcomers to learn the gameplay and immerse themselves in the world of Demon’s Souls. Additionally, enemies will drop fewer upgrade stones and more healing items. New areas and special NPCs will also be open; players just need to know where to find them.

Yes it is another post apocalyptic kind of scenario featuring an outbreak that changes people and the few that are left are just trying to survive, but when something is done well it doesn’t matter if the story appears similar to others. Check it out and see what you can expect from this upcoming title.
