If you’re a fan of frustratingly good demon combat, chances are you’ve been playing a lot of Atlus’ Demon’s Souls, even with the release of the sequel Dark Souls last year. So it must’ve saddened you when the company announced that it would be taking servers offline at the end of the month. Well, perk up and sharpen your sword, because your killing ways shall continue.
The company announced today that it is, in fact, not taking the servers for the popular game offline, and has extended their lifeline into the “foreseeable future." No specific date was given, but who cares, you can still play along with friends!
“We’re incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon’s Souls online experience will persist for a while longer,” stated Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Atlus. “While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon’s Souls.
“For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game’s amazing online experience, we’re happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon’s Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time.”
We’ll see you online, you fiend killers.
