Does Demon's Souls for PS5 have multiplayer?

The upcoming Demon’s Souls remake is going to be a big launch title for the PlayStation 5. Originally Developed by FromSoftware and published by Sony Entertainment, the original Demon’s Souls came out back in 2009 for the PlayStation 3. Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of the original Demon’s Souls game, and FromSoftware gave the go-ahead for Bluepoint Games to work on the remake in 2016, given the high demand.

The action role-playing game has a big following, and Souls fans have been anticipating this one for a long time. One thing players are wondering is if Demon’s Souls for PS5 has multiplayer or not. Here’s what we know about the game so far.

Does Demon’s Souls for PS5 have multiplayer?

Demon’s Souls for PlayStation 5 has the option for multiplayer and supports from two to six players. PS Plus is a requirement for online play in Demon’s Souls, but the multiplayer experience is entirely optional. You can opt to play through the story by yourself in single-player mode if you want.

The six-player online limit means you can summon up to three cooperative players and have two invaders simultaneously, by the sound of it. For reference, the original Demon’s Souls game on PlayStation 3 has a maximum of four players. There is not much information as to the exact details of multiplayer, but we’re expecting a lot of it to be reworked.

Demon’s Souls multiplayer is not for the faint of heart. If frustratingly brutal enemies don’t get to you, perhaps the invaders will. On death, you enter Soul Form, where you can invade someone else’s game and beat them to return to your regular form. When you defeat someone, they must pay it forward and do it to another player. And so the cycle continues. Up to two invaders can be in your game, so be prepared.

Demon’s Souls release on PlayStation 5 on November 12 for select regions and November 19 worldwide.
