The PlayStation 5 launch title, the Demon’s Souls remake, official PlayStation page have been updated with new information on the game. 

The updated page reveals it will feature two different modes you can choose to run the game in 4K resolution mode and a High Frame Rate Mode. It is likely the 4K Mode will run the game at 30 FPS, while the High Frame Rate Mode will run the game at 60 FPS, but at a lower resolution like 1080p or 1440p. However, it doesn't say specifically. 

Demon’s Souls Remake Gives You the Option to Choose Between 4K and High Frame Rate Modes

Check out some of what was updated on the page below:

  • Stunning visuals: See the dark, gritty world of Demon’s Souls come to life on the PS5 console with beautifully enhanced visuals. Players can choose between two graphics modes while playing Demon’s Souls: 4K Mode (play in 4K resolution2) and High Frame Rate Mode (play with a higher targeted frame rate.)
  • Fast loading: Demon’s Souls is a game built for fast loading. Death is an inevitable part of your experience, but with fast loading, you’re able to get back into the action quickly.
  • Haptic feedback: With haptics, the power of Demon’s Souls is in your hands, allowing you to feel the energy as you cast dark spells and bright miracles. Hold on tight as you experience the true power of terrifying bosses and demons, where clashes are enhanced by haptics technology.
  • Tempest 3D AudioTech: Immersive 3D Audio brings the horrors that lurk around each corner of Demon’s Souls to life. Hear your enemies sneak up behind you, and pinpoint fireballs and arrows as they sail towards your head. 3D Audio immerses you in not just the gameplay, but enhances the world’s believability, along with your own fears and trepidations…

Demon’s Souls will launch for the  PlayStation 5 on November 12 in North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, and November 19 in Europe and the rest of the world.

I'll take the performance mode gladly. Going forward for these 9th gen games, on Microsoft Series X and Sony PS5 there should be a performance option for all games.

Had a work mate today say he didn't completed Spider-man because it wasn't 60 fps. When did a good game become less important that some how the performs in frames? I just sent him a youtube video of Homer shouting NEEEERRDD!

I like the idea of "Tempest 3D AudioTech" but I don't like wearing headphones. Wonder when it will be optimized for TVs/soundbars.

It's already working on standard soundbars and stereo speakers but not as good as head/ear phones

Why is it incapable of doing both?

A_Robo_Commando (on 01 October 2020)

Because they didn't want to turn down the effects. Personally, I prefer they keep all the effects and just drop the resolution to hit 60 fps so at least the detail looks mostly the same.

Next gen hasn't even come out yet, they are still coming to terms with the hardware, and they have been working on it for some time now. This game most like was made with ps4/ps4 pro specs in mind, and it will probably end up launching on current gen systems. Graphically what I have seen, It doesn't look any better than tlou2. So i'd expect a game like this to release on current gen.

Developers will ALWAYS target high visual fidelity for screenshots and marketing, which means they sacrifice the framerate. It's not because the console CAN'T do 4k 60 fps. It's because the game looks better frame by frame if they target 30 because they can up the effects and resolution. I still don't understand why people don't get this.

Wow it's just the beginning and this game wont be able to run at 60fps 4k. I hope that at least the 1080p mode can run locked at 60fps or it would be a big disappointment.

KratosLives (on 01 October 2020)

They have been working on it for years. This was clearly started out as a ps4/pro game. Then they added in some raytracing in the end. The ps5 potential has barely been tapped. From getting familiar with the ssd, efficiency with the gpu/cpu and software /engine enhancements to the adapted hardware.
