Demon's Souls on PS5 Will Include Over 180 Hints From Devs

Gavin Moore from Blupoint Games has shared information about the support for hint system in Demon's Souls on PlayStation 5. The devs have prepared over 180 videos that will gradually guide lost players towards the solution to their problem.

The upcoming remake of Demon's Souls is certainly one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games. However, it can be seen that some of the potential buyers of the console are not convinced about buying this particular title. It's not surprising, as From Software's games are (in)famous for their high (though usually fair) level of difficulty. The creators of the refreshed DS are aware of this, as evidenced by information provided by Washington Post. In the article devoted, among other things, to the use of PS5's capabilities, there was a mention of support for a system of hints left by developers. As it turns out, the new Demon's Souls will use it very often. According to Gavin Moore (Creative Director at Bluepoint Games), more than 180 videos have been prepared and will be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers from within the game. Each of these hints will have several degrees of visibility so as not to reveal the whole solution immediately.

Of course, the content of these videos was not revealed. We can only guess that some of them will act as a kind of introduction to the game mechanics, while others will show how to deal with more difficult challenges. The former will be useful as FromSoftware seemingly likes to throw beginners into the deep end (remember "Mr. Tutorial" from first Dark Souls?). Demon's Souls is no exception, and the devs assurances about remaining loyal to the original 2009 release make us doubt the possibility of making the game easier (see our recent interview with Gavin Moore). Thus, the new hint system will certainly be useful for those who - probably more than once - get stuck on their tour across kingdom of Boletaria. Demon's Souls will be released exclusively on PlayStation 5 on the day of the console's debut, on November 12 or 19 depending on the region.
