As it did last year, the impenetrably difficult Demon's Souls is giving players just a teensy bit of a break between now and New Year's. From now to Jan. 2, Demon's Souls will ease the game's difficulty and unlock "otherwise inaccessible areas and items."

For those familiar with the game, that means, Demon's Souls is shifting to a Pure White World Tendency. It follows Atlus' decision to continue online support for the 2009 game through 2012. If you don't have it, the full title is available for $20 at retail.
