Will you seek a greater challenge, Slayer of Demons?

So you’ve tussled with the main game, destroyed some Demons, and now you feel untouchable. Your legacy is irrefutable. Non-negotiable. Well, maybe Fractured Mode will seek to change that. Demon’s Souls’ fresh update will have its gorgeous map completely inverted – enemies and all.

The world around you is completely mirrored, especially for long-time fans, and can throw you off with its now opposite enemy placements. Muscle memory is a great thing, until the thing you know off-by-heart is thrown for a loop.
