Well, that was fast.
The release of the Demon's Souls remake on PlayStation 5 offers players a familiar, yet different, world to explore. Fans took notice of Bluepoint Games' enigmatic door after it was quickly uncovered behind an illusory wall in Boletaria, and the reason it was unusual was because it was not present in the original PlayStation 3 release of Demon's Souls.
The mysterious door in Demon's Souls has finally been unlocked
In an interview with The Washington Post, creative director Gavin Moore said that while Bluepoint did make some changes to the original, when it comes to adding an easy difficulty, "it wasn't our place - merely being custodians for this incredible game - to add something that would fundamentally alter its balance".
This door was hidden behind an illusory wall in Boletaria world 1-3. The race to open the door was on. The developer of the remake, Bluepoint Games, has clearly been trying to give dedicated From Software fans something new to discover which obviously caused a mad dash to see who could open the door first.

And that proved to be the answer! Twitch streamer and speedrunner Distortion2 is seemingly the first to solve the secret of the door. For your trouble you'll receive the Penetrator armor set, a new set designed for the remake.
So what was behind the door? This corpse is wearing the full Penetrator armor set and sword, which is the actual reward. The developers captioned the postcard style image with "Wish you were here!" a cheeky message in hindsight.More news: Polis announces dial changes, special legislative session targeted at COVID-19 relief
Although the coins were a good guess. Except instead of 26, players needed 79 hidden coins to access the easter egg Bluepoint added.
Moore previously told The Washington Post that although Demon's Souls is a challenging game, he believes it's "actually very fair".More news: Trump tweets about election results and skips session on pandemic during G20
