It appears to lead to a courtyard with an item.
Souls fans always welcome mysteries and secrets with open arms, and though Bluepoint Games’ Demon’s Souls remake for the PS5 is a very faithful recreation of the original PS3 game, it seems it’s thrown in some secrets of its own as well.
As spotted by Twitter user @VaatiVidya, there’s a mysterious new locked door in the remake that wasn’t in the original game. This door can be found in the Tower Knight Archstone, in World Level 1-3 within cramped corridors behind an illusory wall. Interacting with the door prompts a message that says, “It appears to be locked.”
While we don’t yet know what exactly is behind this new locked door, as discovered by users on Reddit thanks to the wonders of the game’s Photo Mode, it seems the door leads to a balcony where you can find an item on a dead soldier.
Demon’s Souls is out now for PS5. While our review isn’t ready just yet, in our technical analysis of the game, we called it “a massive leap in fidelity over the original” and “an impressive way to kick off next gen.” You can read our full analysis through here.
