To be of help to the newest and novice players, Demon’s Souls will have a hundred support videos
The Dark Souls games have led to some interesting conversations about the nature of difficulty in video games. And they have also led to many useless conversations in which no one learns anything and there have only been screams without intention to dialogue. These last few years have led to the presentation of games with “accessible” modes. The explanation is simple: video games are getting bigger and bigger, so you have to give casual players the opportunity to get to know these worlds. This is why Demon’s Souls will have a series of support videos.
Demon’s Souls Creative Director (Gavin Moore) spoke to The Washington Post. In this interview, Moore explained one of the biggest changes in the entire remake. What Bluepoint Games has implemented within this title is that it will have almost 200 help videos. It’s objective? Help players complete the game and survive the lands of Boletaria. Each of these will explain how to advance certain parts of the map or defeat certain enemies.
The most fascinating thing is that the PS5 has an interface that will allow you to display the video in a corner while you play the game. That way, you won’t even have to close it to see what you have to do. It’s a catchy idea and a middle ground between both sides of the difficult conversation. It is not an easy or simple mode, but it is also not a continuation of what has been seen in the franchise since Dark Souls. Some will be upset about this, but this way a new audience can get closer to the remake and get to know FromSoftware’s gameplay for the first time.
Demon’s Souls will be released on November 10 alongside the PlayStation 5.
