Demon's Souls Remake Lore Explained

تم نشره في 2020/11/24
Whether you're just diving into Demon's Souls for the first time, or you're revisiting the cult classic via the PS5 remake, one thing remains true: the Kingdom of Boletaria has a rich history that you need to know.
Demon's Souls is full of deep lore and interesting stories: it's the tale of a mighty kingdom brought to its knees. Only you, the Slayer of Demons, can save Boletaria from the many beasts that now roam the land. This latest episode of Lorescape goes into detail about the history of the kingdom and what led to this new demon-infested state.
If you're unsure about diving in to the notoriously difficult game yourself, you can check out GameSpot's full Demon's Souls review. And if you need some help surviving, we have a list of handy beginner's tips too.

  • Type bs small lore was that😑

  • *Waits for new Vaati video*

  • Yeah this story is a total shit show 😂

  • Nice try, you've missed a ton a things. Play slower please

  • nooo i was hoping VaatiVidya made this first

  • Oh oh wait GameSpot let vaati do his stuff he's best at fromsoftware games lore 😀 the best I must say

  • This video was a compilated version, but if you want LOTS of detail you should probably check Lokey's videos.

  • There's only one man who's gonna tell me about FromSoftware Lore and that's VaatiVidya...

    • That’s why you are watching a lore video from this channel. /facepalm

    • They are all great in their own way. I personally enjoy the tone of Vaati voice more but yea there are times where I wish he went a little more in depth like with Bloodborne

    • @Bloodyshinta1 Indeed. I can never get enough ENB content.

    • ENB is better than all these guys combined

    • Geek

  • A lot of this story is metaphorical to modern day events of humanity

  • I’m sorry but I finished the game and it was ridiculously easy. I didn’t die to a boss once. Very dissatisfied.

  • 🤩

  • Anyone looking for lore needs to sub to vaatividya ASAP

  • common knowledge the game's been out for 11 years

    • Common knowledge is that the earth is round. Not this. Only for basement dwellers maybe this is common knowledge 😒

    • Well the common knowledge is really just this for new players: "So you're this knight, and he's gotta kill some Demons...good luck."

  • The knight just has the determination of a dead teen

  • Man this has so much exaggerated swager

  • Black teen be like

  • I have a question is it for the PS4

  • A gamespot telling lore on souls game? But you guys only specialist on platformer game

  • To me Demon Souls has the best soul lore story from the others.

    • Yep it has things like Knights, dragons, castles, medievil settings from Dark Souls and the Old one, ghosts, prison wards, king of storms...and lovecraftian stuff like BB. It has the best of both worlds into one and no dlc needed, truly a unique masterpiece. Also tower of latria has to be one of the most beautiful and eery levels i've played

    • @Joakoko The thing with Bloodborne, for me, is the plot twist. The game gets crazy as fuck, the whole Lovecraft twist was one of the coolest things. But Demons has such detail into it as well, and naturally this video barely scratches the surface.

    • not better than bloodborne

  • B L A C K T E E N

  • I really hope one day people on xbox and PC get to play this masterpiece

  • knight kills exaggeratingly swaggy

  • Im playing the original version. So unique and beautiful. Underrated AF.

    • @Alex The best games of all time are 16-bit lmao fkcing casual

    • Maybe not under rated but under played for sure. My favorite ps3 game. Loving the remake

    • still better than this lame remake

    • 720p 30fps

    • Yeah that 89 metacritic is so underrated. What kinda crack are you smoking? If it was underrated we wouldn't have gotten this remake

  • Vaati exists for this, let everyone do what he is meant to do and stick to reviews gamespot😒

    • @Felipe Zorzi Also true.

    • Vaati is not the only person who can speak the lore of these games, and it is only his interpretation, so go watch him youtuber fanboy 😂

    • And as if a 4min video would replace Vaati's lore content! I don't know if he'll make new videos on lore for the Remake, but if he does, this small one will not be taking any views from him.

    • This is a gaming channel tho and they have been doing more than just reviews for over 2 decades. They been doing things like this even before AR-one was a thing. On their website, Gamespot TV etc. This is perfectly in line with gaming so I don't see what point you're trying to make here. It's like you're trying to limit others due to you being a huge fanboy of another person. Its nonsensical and also pretty lame.

  • The Souls series has always had "A Story through Environment" meaning nobody truly knows specifically the real Lore.

    • @Willice22 Yes, but there is always room for speculation in all of them.

    • I would say yes but by reading equipment and listening to NPCs you usually get a pretty good understanding of what is going on.

  • vati plz dont steal this one too

    • @RedEye like i said there is so many articles about this and i didnt make any of them

    • Vaati doesnt steal. If he heared something from another person he always credits them. Why do people like you even exist spreading thoose lies?

    • @Nightwing_x02 you poor kids dont know who that guy is yet lol there so many articles about him being a lore thief even kotaku made one about him

    • don't feed this troll... his name alone should have already baited you. 😷🤦‍♂️

    • @Tatienou orest must be stolen then

  • Ps5 - Play has no limits, YES THE LIMITS ARE NO CONSOLES AVAILABLE!

  • Did they change the story ?

  • So is this game apart of the dark souls world or not?

    • @starfthegreat Yep, and the other ending became Bloodborne, in fact in BB's alpha version, the first story boss you kill says "umbasa" as his last words, wich in Demon's Souls universe it's basically and "Amen" kind of religious word, so even Miyazaki himself has wanted to hint at this but he deleted it in the 1.0, leaving it to own speculation.

    • There's a fan theory that argues that one of Demon Soul's endings lays the foundations for Dark Souls saga

    • No. It’s the the first Souls game. But narratively speaking they’re not connected. Miyazaki went on to create Dark Souls after this because Sony owns the right to Demon’s Souls.

    • No. t's a long story, and worth looking up if you're interested in the history of the Soulsborne games.

  • Umbasa

  • Overrated game, if there's one.

    • @Alien Thanks, you speak nothing but the truth. These are just straight up facts! But xbox fanboys lack the braincells to understand that I guess.

    • If you think this game is overrated you have a shit taste in games.

    • @-1Ns3RT C01N- Ah the good old XBox fanboy still talking the same old 3 franchises milked to death for 15 years. Halo, Gears, Forza and nothing else. And they are not even truly exclusives. Guess what? They all play and look better on PC. How can people even puke up $500 for the Xbox series X at launch? It’s nothing but an overpriced paperweight. Microsoft is just embarrassing themselves at this point by launching a console with no launch exclusives. Was there ANY console in history that launched without an exclusive title? PS5 and PC for the real gamers. XBox has nothing unique to offer. GamePass is on PC and even mobiles. The only people who buy XBox at this point are just brand loyalists and fanboys.

    • @NamesAreForLosers Tell me a better open world racer first??

    • @-1Ns3RT C01N- If you think those are definitive games, you have not experienced much you silly child.

  • To bad I can’t play the game since there isn’t a ps5... so I’ll have to pass on this one

    • @Aimani Daviddelacruz exactly

    • @Jason Oster but y’all aren’t able to sell them tell Black Friday, right? It’s going to be sold out again.

    • @Arda Vila once you finally get It though my friend you're gonna love it

    • @Arda Vila sorry bud , yes in America

    • @Jason Oster America? Im in europe sadly.

  • My take on the lore: So there’s this knight, and he has to kill things.

    • @Darrell Garrett i need proof, psn profile

    • @tokyodriftstyle how do you know?

    • @Deepak Singh You haven't even played it

    • @Deepak Singh Quality>Quantity, Bloodborne lore alone is better than those games you mentioned combined and i have played hundreds of hours into those titles.

    • If you’d learn the lore, I promise you’d appreciate the game more and enjoy it more

  • I heard we can’t classify this as a remake it’s a remaster

    • Everything is made from the ground up. It doesn't qualify as a Remaster seeing that a Remaster uses old code, old assets etc. What you're thinking of is a reimagining. This is most certainly a remake.

    • It is a remaster , almost no differences
