Demon’s Souls, arguably the flagship PlayStation 5 launch game, looks extraordinary running on Sony’s next-gen system – but how does it compare to the original PlayStation 3 game? Well, as you probably may imagine, the delta between the two versions is extraordinary, with Bluepoint’s remake bursting with additional detail and atmosphere.
There’s an entirely new lighting system, loading times have been reduced more than ten times, and the developer has even added new animations to the original to give it a fluidity that it lacked at launch. Perhaps most importantly at all, the game’s running at 60 frames-per-second on PS5, while the PS3 version struggles to maintain 30 frames-per-second.
It’s an extraordinary improvement to one of PlayStation’s most iconic games.
