Atlus Extends Online Support for Demon’s Souls into 2012
Atlus had a surprise hit on their hands when they published Demon’s Souls for the PS3 in 2009. The game has become a rite of passage for those that look to prove themselves when it comes to difficult games. Constantly unforgiving, Demon’s Souls found an audience and it has received tons of praise from those willing to stick it out till the final credits.
One component that was overlooked at launch, was the inclusion of a strange online system, where people could make note of items in your game. Sometimes, people would be nice, warning others of upcoming traps or enemies, while others found the opportunity to grief, leaving misleading commentary that would most likely end up killing you. The online support was supposed to end over a year ago, but Atlus had extended support several times due to the demand and popularity of Demon’s Souls.
Atlus has again decided to extend support, and it was timed to coincide with the soon to be announced sequel, Dark Souls. Dark Souls is not being published by Atlus this time around, as others have stepped up to publish after seeing the huge success with the first title.
So if you have not had the chance to try this, for lack of a better term, kick you in the balls hard ass game, you might want to do so now while the servers are still running.
