Bloodborne: Dark Souls’ Successor ‘Project Beast’ Revealed for PS4.

By on

Just a month before the E3 2014 schedule, we all saw some creepy and nasty looking photos, which supposedly were leaked from a working title from the creators of Dark Souls and Demon Souls. It was, then, called Project Beast. Now, in the recent E3 2014 announcement, the game was put ?in the spotlight. It got its official title, and along with it, an even more terrifying and equally cool footage of the game?s features.

Now officially called ?Bloodborne?, the trailer showcased disturbing monsters, which is probably going to be the game?s highlight. If this is going to be a “spiritual” successor to either Dark Souls or Demon Souls, it is not easy to bet that getting through these beasts would be a walk in the park. Not at all, so expect the game to be equally hard as how Demons Souls and Dark Souls were.

The trailer is a bit on the vague side, but it would be safe to assume that the game will be in a Victorian~esque era, and there will be a bunch of undead and mutated creatures to slay. (That is, if you don?t get killed first)

However, the trailer also leaves little to no hint of how the actual gameplay would look like. Given that it is something for a next-gen console, a huge bump in the graphical department is to be expected here (hopefully this wouldn?t turn out like how Dark Souls 2?s graphics were adjusted ?accordingly?)

The official plot synopsis from FROM SOFTWARE is as follows

?Face your fears as you search for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire. Danger, death and madness lurk around every corner of this dark and horrific world, and you must discover its darkest secrets in order to survive.?

Bloodborne is ?going to be out in 2015, so fans of the previous titles will need to wait. Bloodborne is is also going to be an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4. PC gamers however should get their hopes up, because Dark Souls didn?t start out to have an official port on the PC either.
