Mark Cerny, lead architect for PS5, explains that they added these how-to videos thanks to the Activities feature.
Demon’s Souls for PS5 will squeeze the new “Activities” feature from the console interface. Game Help, a new exclusive service for PS Plus players, provides video guides of the console’s titles with images and videos to help the user complete a level or stage. In the case of the SIE Japan and Bluepoint Games remake, there will be over 180 videos for guidance.
As explained by Mark Cerny, head of PS5 architecture, in a meeting with The Washington Post, this compendium of videos will be dedicated to each level of the game with specific pointers to help you figure out the right way forward.
As we saw in the video introducing the interface of the new Sony console, it will be some sort of cards that will be placed across the screen, so we don’t have any loading times, nor is it necessary to exit the game. While he hasn’t provided specific details, it’s hoped we’ll get out of doubt with some examples soon.
Demon’s Souls, one of the exclusive PS5 launch games
MeriStation recently got the chance to interview Demon’s Souls Creative Director Gavin Moore. After talking to him, we learned that the game allows to play with the original camera, which has no difficulty, that he has decided not to include the sixth Archstone and that it will have two modes on PS5 in 4K Resolution: Not based on resolution (4K natives at 30 FPS) and another in visual fidelity (dynamic 4K at 60 FPS). This is what it looks like at 60 FPS.
Demon’s Souls will be available worldwide on November 12, exclusively on PlayStation 5. Regarding consoles, both PS5 and PS5 All Digital will be released in Europe on November 19 for EUR 499 and EUR 399 respectively; although in the rest of the world they arrive a week earlier.
