Demons Souls: World tendency and character tendency explained - tips
In Demon's Souls Remake for PS5, the world tendency for the five worlds of the wedge stones and the character tendency also play a major role. Although the developers at Bluepoint Games promised to make both features more beginner-friendly, as in the PS3 original of the Dark Souls predecessor, many questions remain unanswered. We provide you with tips on the World Tendency and Character Tendency and explain how you influence them. The influence of the server median on world trends should also be taken into account. In an interview with Polygon, Gavin Moore of Bluepoint Games explains: "Changing the level of the world trend for light and dark triggers a few events.

The world trend

So if you want to proceed systematically in terms of world trends, you should at least for the part of Pure White Better to play World Tendency offline. The influence of the Demon's Souls servers is thus excluded and you comfortably handle all events for possible PS5 trophies.

For example, if you kill an invader in the tower of Latria, the world trend only changes there. The effects will only be activated once you return to the Nexus. So if you die in human form in a level, this only affects the world trend as soon as you actively return to the Nexus. On the other hand, if you die in human form in the nexus, this has no effect on the tendency of any world.
