FromSoftware have given previous little to go on regarding their latest game, which remains untitled, bar a short and mysterious trailer at December’s Games Awards.
Fans of the company’s games are convinced that the clip was related to a Bloodborne sequel, which has sparked a ferocious need for any and all news on the project.
But with the video games developer playing their cards very close to their chest a new comic book series from Titan may lay the ground for a new game (or just whetting the appetite).
Bloodborne: The Death Of Sleep, is written by Ales Kot (previously of Generation Gone, Zero) with art by Piotr Kowalski (who’s previous work includes the Dark Souls comics).
The story is much like that of the game and sees a nameless Hunter awaken in an ancient city where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned.
Seeking an escape from the endless Night of the Hunt, the Hunter embarks upon a dangerous, gore-filled quest with the hopes of ending Yharnam’s twisted endemic.
Kot, the comic’s writer, hinted at new clues as to what what became of Yharnam, saying: ‘Bloodborne is one of my all-time favorite games. I put close to two hundred hours into playing it and researching its universe, and that was before I even knew there would be a comic — I was obsessed.
‘There will be mystery, the weird, the eerie, the horrific and the bloody — and there will be an undercurrent of decaying romanticism, walking hand in hand with brain-mashing, soul-cleaving action, together ascending towards the Blood Moon as drawn by the talented and depraved Piotr Kowalski. Ascend with us, Hunters old and new.’
The comics are set to be released as gamers eagerly await more information on what Bloodborne developer FromSoftware has been working on – which many believe is a sequel to the dark action RPG.
The only information anyone has to go on so far is a teaser trailer from the Game Awards that has been shown, only giving us a glimpse at the next title.
So far the game remains unnamed – but fans around the world are calling it the Shadows Die Twice trailer – after the phrase that pops up in it after a gory and grisly cut scene.
The comic will hit the shelves later on this month.
