Demon's Souls becomes downloadable next week
RPG title to appear on PSN, special event to celebrate
ATLUS today announced that Demon's Souls, the action RPG for PlayStation 3, will be coming in downloadable form to the PlayStation Network (PSN) on January 8th for $19.99.
To celebrate, 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, which 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. 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.
Demon's Souls originally launched on PlayStation 3 in 2009. The followup game Dark Souls launched on all platforms in 2011.
