Demon’s Souls on PS5 is a remake, but one new element that has been added has got a lot of people talking. The game now has a mysterious door that no one can figure out how to open. Now, as players inch closer to discovering the door’s secrets, Bluepoint Games has tweeted out a teaser–one that could have a cryptic second meaning.
The tweet in question, embedded below, is a postcard from within the room with “Wish You Were Here” embossed on it. But what’s really got people talking is the text alongside the image: “A symphony of rumors…”
This is a reference to another tweet, made a year ago, by the account. The tweet, embedded below, follows up “a symphony of rumors” with “not one, but two”.
A Demon’s Souls remake from Bluepoint Games was rumored for a long time before the game was unveiled as a PS5 launch title. What’s the second rumor? It’s not clear, but the item behind the door could hold the key.
So calm this spooky night. A symphony of rumors – not one, but two – return from shadow. A resistance to dart home as black monsters escape twisted hills to wander lands and syphon souls. Filter your candy collections, soft from solid, and be eco-friendly. Have a metal Halloween. pic.twitter.com/mFFxI7BIDN

YouTuber Distortion2–who is tagged in the Bluepoint games tweet–has found a way to reach what’s behind the door from the outside, but there’s a protective forcefield around it–meaning that while you can see the item behind the door, you can’t reach it. You can watch and listen to him explain that below.
It’s not clear if the door can be opened right now, or if it will unlock following an update. You can expect the game’s community to keep checking as updates arrive.
In GameSpot’s review of Demon’s Souls, critic Tamoor Hussain gave the game a 9/10. “It is a technical tour de force and a true showpiece for the PS5 and the power of Sony’s next-generation console,” he wrote. “But, more importantly, it’s also a creative marvel coming from a studio that is clearly showing the world it has its own voice.”
