About Demon's Souls
Boasting a “dark fantasy” theme, Demon’s Souls allows players to forge their own character by tweaking gender, age and various assorted attributes, before embarking on a quest to the destroyed Kingdom of Voletaria. Here you’ll duke it out against legions of gigantic creatures using a variety of weaponry, each one offering a different style of combat depending if they’re wielding by one or both hands.
