Demons Souls' servers to be supported till 2012
Posted on September 22, 2011 by MikeV

It seems that the 2009 surprise hit Demons' Souls still has life left in it. Atlus has yet again decided to have its servers extended letting players continue to slay and be slayen for one more year. 

Atlus PR manager Aram Jabbari had this to say:

"While it comes at significant cost to us and although it has been over two years since the game revolutionized the notion of multiplayer and online functionality in an RPG, our commitment to the game and the fans that turned it into an incredible success remains as strong as ever.While the reality is that one day the servers will ultimately close due to operation and maintenance costs, that day is not today, nor will it be this year. We're excited to continue to support one of the most significant, influential games in recent memory into its third year, and we're planning to hold more tendency events for our loyal, beloved fans. If you've been waiting to try Demon's Souls or held off with concern that it was too late to join in, the truth is that there's never been a better time to see what all the talk and awards are all about." 

Even though it has been almost two years since its release, Demons Souls was one of the few games that changed the perception of what an RPG is and how it handles online multiplayer. It also redefined what it meant to be a hard game, by forcing the player to constantly be aware of their surrounds and punshing them if they didn't. Dark Souls is set to raise that bar even high when it release next month. But by no means Demons Souls should be missed out. The game is now apart of the Greatest Hits line and is $19.99 right now. So there's no excuse to miss out on such a great and hard game.
