The lights are on
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."
"We're incredibly excited to be able to announce that the Demon's Souls online experience will persist for a while longer," stated Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at ATLUS. "While it originally seemed as though it would be unfeasible for us to continue to sustain the servers, a number of developments have made it possible for us to continue to invest in and support our fans as they have continued to invest in and support us and Demon's Souls.
"For all the gamers who have yet to discover the game's amazing online experience, we're happy to say you can still log on and find out why Demon's Souls is still regarded by many as one of the finest games of all time."
ATLUS won't rule out the possibility of future extensions of the North American servers, provided user activity and interest remain constant, the publisher said.
Great to hear, this must be like the fourth time they've delayed closing servers, not that I'm complaining.
Great news, glad many will experience this.
A game so tough, the developers cannot even close the servers. Good stuff
I've been meaning to pick this game up again. Never got around to finishing it. Every time I got into the rhythm of playing it, another game would come along.
this is glorious news!! i1.kym-cdn.com/.../337.gif This past couple of days has been phenomenal. Great news left and right. :D
I played Demon's Souls completely offline because I didn't want to be invaded. But Dark Souls I did the complete opposite by playing online and always invading other people. I feel the need to redeem myself by doing the same in Demon's Souls. So this is good news.
While I love Dark Souls, Demons started it all, so I'm glad I can continue it's solid online experience.
