ATLUS has announced that the action RPG title Demon's Souls, available now in retail stores, will be coming in downloadable form via PlayStation Network on January 13 for $19.99. Demon's Souls is a PS3 game that allows you to team up with two other players in simultaneous cooperative play, working together to topple some of the game's colossal bosses, or force your way into the games of skilled players and challenge them to PvP battle. You can leave hints and clues for those who will follow in your footsteps, either intentionally or through your own inadvertent demise, and your bloodstains will allow your successors to view a replay of your death, hinting at how to avoid your fate.
To celebrate this launch, ATLUS is hosting a World Tendency Event for one week starting on 1/8/13 and ending on 1/14/13, setting the servers to Pure White. For those that haven't played the game, Pure White Tendency brings a number of changes to the game. For one, the game will be adjusted to an easier difficulty setting, where enemies will have decreased HP, attack power, and defense, while players will inflict more damage when attacking. Additionally, enemies will drop fewer upgrade stones and more healing items. New areas and special NPCs will also be open; players just need to know where to find them.
Update: the game will be available in Europe on January 23rd, 2013.
