While players will still be able to play the game even without the online functionality intact, it’ll be a different experience. It will mean an end to online cooperative and competitive multiplayer, the ability to write and read messages from other players, and the ability to see other players’ deaths. Be sure to get your Demon’s Souls online gaming in before the end of February 2018.
