Out of all of From Software’s Souls games that can be played on PC, their very first work, Demon’s Souls, isn’t among them. However, now you can play Demon’s Souls on PC with the help of an emulator, letting Demon’s Souls join Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, and Dark Souls 3 on PC.
Demon’s Souls is the original creator of the “Soulsborne” series of games that From Software has become best known for. Players take on the role of a nameless adventurer who travels to the kingdom of Boletaria, which has been shrouded in a sinister fog.
There, players must attempt to lull the Old One, an entity that was awoken in Boletaria and is responsible for the fog, back to sleep before the mist spreads out to the rest of the world.
You can play Demon’s Souls on PC through the use of an emulator called RPCS3, which will allow you to play the game. Demon’s Souls has been out of production for several weeks now, so any copies that you might have could be a fairly valuable commodity soon.
However, before you actually decide to download the emulator and the game, you should probably know that the game doesn’t run as good as it does on a Playstation 4 when you’re trying to emulate it on PC. While it does look amazing, and the frame rate is good, players may encounter a small amount of glitches and frame rate drops, along with other performance issues.
If you don’t have a Playstation 3, this may be the best chance you’ve got to play Demon’s Souls if you’re not content with watching Let’s Plays. If you want to see how Demon’s Souls on PC plays, then all you have to do is watch the video that’s further up this article. If you want to play it, just download the emulator and the game (and see if your computer can handle it.)
