According to Horono, Dark Souls environment is a “seamlessly connected world. If you can see an area in the distance then you can go there. This world is about three to four times as big as the world in Demon’s Souls. There’s also double the amount of accessories and weapons in this game.”
While this is primarily a thread for Dark Souls, the Demon's Souls servers will be shutting down on October 11th, so Demon's Souls discussion is also welcome and encouraged. After all, it's the only game that will properly prepare anyone for this.
Personally, I'm going to miss the realm of Boletaria, the Maiden in Black, Stockpile Thomas, and even that jerk Yurt the Silent Chief... But this will supposedly be a significant improvement of the Demon's Souls formula.
