Demon's Souls Digital Deluxe Edition will give you a leg up in your journey through Boletaria with a trove of in-game items.

Sony shared new details on the Demon's Souls Digital Deluxe Edition on its official pre-order pages for the game, listing all of the bonus contents you'll get for the extra $20. The standard edition will cost $69.99, following the new pricing guidelines from Sony, and the Digital Deluxe will cost $89.99.

Most of the contents of the Demon's Souls Digital Deluxe Edition are extra equipment and items that you can also earn in the original version of the game. It looks like it will also add a few new pieces of its own with the Red-Eye Knight Armor and the Boletarian Royalty Armor. You'll also unlock the game's original soundtrack with your purchase.

Here's the full list of extra contents for the Demon's Souls Digital Deluxe Edition.

  • Storied Warrior Soul

  • Hoplite Shield
  • Ring of Longevity

The warrior and hero soul items immediately bestow a stockpile of Soul currency (at least that's what they did in the original game), so you'll quickly be able to upgrade your character or buy some new gear if you pick up the Digital Deluxe Edition. Just don't use them and then immediately die without touching your bloodstain, because it's still a Souls game and you will be very upset.

In addition to pre-order and edition details, today yielded a batch of Demon's Souls screenshots which uphold its status as one of the best-looking PS5 games so far. You can view the full gallery on the game's PlayStation product page, and Twitter user Shinobi602 rounded up the new ones in a tweet:

We've seen these enemies and vistas before, but it's easier to appreciate the sheer detail on them in a high-res still rather than a fast-paced trailer. The iconic red dragon looks especially vibrant, and the detail on the helmet pictured here, not to mention the cobblestone around it, is breathtaking. The new consoles may not see as big of a graphical leap as previous generations, but there's plenty to marvel at.
