Atlus today announced plans to again extend its online server support for the award-winning hardcore multiplayer action RPG Demon’s Souls for PS3, ensuring that the game’s acclaimed online functionality is available into 2012. The title’s network features, considered among the most memorable and innovative such feature sets in gaming history, go far beyond any previous RPG, allowing players to leave hints for each other, replay death scenes, cooperatively revive dead players, or invade another player’s game to wreak havoc. Far from an add-on feature, the multiplayer possibilities in Demon’s Souls are vast and uniquely focused on changing and intensifying the single player experience. This sounds great to me, my only issue is that Atlus didn’t say how far into 2012.
In addition to their continued commitment to the game’s unmatched online functionality, ATLUS also today revealed plans for Pure White and Pure Black World Tendency events for the holiday season, the details of which would be disclosed at a later date.
Demon’s Souls is out now for PlayStation 3 system for the bargain MSRP of $19.99.
