    Demon's Souls (Atlus) Not Going Offline Yet.

    Post by ublug on Wed Apr 11, 2012 6:37 pm

    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2012/05/25/demon-39-s-souls-servers-staying-online.aspx

    ATLUS said today it's extending the North American online servers for Demon's Souls. The game was originally going offline at the end of this month. No specific time table has been set, but ATLUS said the servers will be left on for the "foreseeable future."




    http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2012/04/11/demon-39-s-souls-going-offline-end-of-may.aspx

    After numerous extensions, ATLUS confirmed it will finally turn off the North American servers for Demon's Souls on May 31, 2012.

    The servers will officially turn off at 11:59 PM PST. ATLUS says the single-player portion of the game will remain unaffected. The company will have two separate World Tendency events next month, May 1-15 and May 16-31, based on fan voting.

    ATLUS encourages all players to sign on May 31 one last time before saying goodbye.

    The server of the EU version is handled by Namco, and the JP version is handled by From, so those should not be affected (unless similar actions are taken by them as well).

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. We really should all be online on the 31st. Make it one hell of a last day.

    It had to happen sometime. But by Gwyn's beard, Demon Souls had a damn good run.

    This is depressing, Its too bad for all the people just getting into demons souls from playing dark souls, but like everyone said, it had its run. Gonna miss the online, but it was practically dead the last few times I tried.

    i was hoping that they could patch it in order to convert it to p2p like dark souls, making it independent from dedicated servers and somehow preserving the online experience... :/ too bad

    We should not be sad at the end of Demon Souls. We should be happy, as it gave rise to Dark Souls! Praise the sun and honour Demon Souls, by playing Dark Souls knowing that none of this would happen if not for Demon Souls.

    Man the day DkS goes offline is the day Orstien and Smough become the hardest boss battle in the game. I've only ever beaten them solo once. Soliare is just no substitute for the coordinated attacks of two players.

    You don't have to worry about because DkS is a Peer to Peer service. There are no dedicated servers. When you host in DkS you are the main server.

    That's fantastic news. It's a shame they don't implement the same system with Demon's. Although I can't be upset with Atlus. They've supplied me with such great entertainment for so many years. I've probably logged more total hours playing Ogre Battle on SNES than I have on both Souls games combined.

    Yes totally forgot that. I was so anxious with the DkS PC version....

    No Demon's announcements on Sony's end so I imagine they aren't pulling the plug yet. Yey.

    I plan to learn japanese one day, so even though these server shutdowns will effect me now, I will be able to play it again one day with the psychotically strong, overpowered, and overplaying japanese players. Really wish i had the money to get a PS3 and play Demon's Souls now, but i will be able to play it online one day.

    This is sad news indeed. How much expense can it be to let the servers running? happy

    That sucks and all, but i never really got into demons souls as much as i did dark souls, so I'm mostly unaffected by this news.
    Still, that sucks for people who still like this game more than dark souls.

    Lucky I'm on the European server, although it's dead invasion wise the co-op seems to come very quickly at low levels, I guess 'cause of Dark Souls raising awareness. The only downside is Namco Bandai.

    I can't stand playing demon's alone. I just love the sense of community when I see the shadows of other players...

    Rest in Peace Demon's Souls.

    Soul of the lost, withdrawn from its vessel.
    Let strength be granted so the world might be mended.
