This is a list of walkthroughs for each area in the Demon's Souls Remake (DS) for PS5. Check the links below for maps, guides, and enemy information!

Tutorial - Boletaria 1-1

At the start of the game, there will be less freedom as the player is forced to clear the tutorial stage up until the 1st area of Boletarian Palace. At this current time, it is also impossible to raise soul level so it is suggested to try and learn the basics of the game during this period. Also learning the proper uses of items, blocking, and patience is the key to getting through this stage.

Firebombs are great against the boss.

After Clearing 1-1, The Order Becomes Free

After clearing the 1-1, you'll be able to start leveling your characters and at the same time, the other archstones becomes available. You can now tackle any area you wish to complete first and it is entirely up to the player which one they wish to choose.

The difficulty of each area varies so our team suggests to at least, start with 2-1 to get some crafting materials. You can also encounter Ed here to gain access to a different set of upgrades. From here, we suggest clearing 4-1 to gain access to one of the best soul farming area in the game.

Best Place to Farm Souls

Archstone of the Small King

More commonly known as the Kingdom of Boletaria. Boletarian Palace presents a bright stage since it's mostly in the open. The enemies are fairly visible but there are several gimmicks with the drakes that makes traversing the stage not as simple as it looks. The bosses also presents some difficulty so learning how to fight the bosses in this area is recommended.

1-1: Boletarian Palace
1-2: Phalanx Archstone
1-3: Tower Knight Archstone
1-4: Penetrator Archstone

Archstone of the Shadowmen

The Archstone of the Shadowmen, called the Shrine of Storms, the area is bright similar to Boletaria but most of the areas presents narrow ledges so falling to your death here is common.
It is home to several undeads. Skeletons, ghosts, and grimreapers call this place their home. The bosses are far from difficult and the area's enemies gives a lot of souls so it's a great strategy to prioritize clearing 4-1 as soon as you can.

4-1: Shrine of Storms
4-2: Adjudicator Archstone
4-3: Old Hero Archstone

Archstone of the Shadowmen

Archstone of the Chieftain

Valley of Defilement
The Archstone of the Chieftain and the Valley of Defilement, home to all that is unwanted. Now home to the Saint that gives comfort to them all at the center of the Valley, the inhabitants attack everyone and gives the souls they obtain to the Saint. The Valley is dark, treacherous, and has many ways to kill you. Prepare Noble's Lotuses and Widow's Lotuses to combat the ailments the environment can cause you. Also, bring fire magics, items, weapons to disptach the inhabitants of the valley.

In contrast to the stage's extreme difficulty lies boss that are complete pushovers so just getting through the valley almost ensures completion of the area.

5-1: Valley of Defilement
5-2: Leechmonger Archstone
5-3: Dirty Colossus Archstone
