Demon’s Souls to launch on PSN 0

ATLUS announced that Demon’s Souls, the award-winning action RPG for PS3 will be coming in downloadable form to the PlayStation®Network on 1/8/13 for $19.99.

For the release of Demon’s Souls to the PSN, 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 means a number of changes to the core gameplay. 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 occurrence in the game so this is a great way for newcomers to jump into the world of Demon’s Souls and learn the frustrating pain of death that the game has come to represent. Additionally, enemies will drop fewer upgrade stones and more healing items. New areas and special NPCs will also be open.
