Demon’s Souls – Online Servers Will Terminate on February 28

Demon's Souls

After nearly nine years of online adventuring, deaths, more deaths and triumphant victories, the developers have announced that online servers of Demon’s Souls will be closing on February 28th for good. Sony Japan was the one to share the news, followed by the statements of Atlus and Bandai Namco. The game will be still fully available for players, but the online elements will be gone.

From the official Atlus blog post on the matter:

It’s with mixed emotions we say goodbye to the service. Countless players have enjoyed Demon’s Souls and the functionality it introduced to players when such things were rarer. If you’ve played the game then you understand the feeling of dying multiple times in the span of 10 minutes or dealing with a boss fight so difficult that it took you a week just to figure out the best way to attack. The unforgiving nature of the game has provided countless enjoyable moments of frustration and anger, but also the elation felt from beating something so challenging. This difficulty and grit helped pave the way for even more punishing games such as its spiritual successor Dark Souls, the 2017 hit Nioh, and the landmark PS4 title, Bloodborne.
