The precursor of the Souls fad is going offline.
It’s been 9 years since the release of Demon’s Souls and the publisher decided that it’s time to shut dow the servers for the game, which will strip it of its online capabilities.

The game was the first in the fantastic series of RPG’s and the online interactions were a big part of its charm. From messages left behind by other players to warn or trick you, to fighting each other or alongside each other it was a fantastic journey.
If you want to have a go at the game there is still time as the shutdown date is set for February 28, 2018.
