While "leaks" from 4chan are generally frowned upon, a new one stemming from the community appears to have outed a new title from Japan.
Looks awesome, is that a shotgun in his hand?
Looks like a dark/demon souls, but the same usage of the character model throughout the image to me tells me it'll be something other. Least centered around a character this time
Yup it looks good.. reminds me of the dark souls atmosphere
Yeah it looks like a third person action. Demon souls inspired. I was hoping for a ninja stealth action game. I hope Sony shows off such a title. Other than that this game looks great hope to see more at E3.
character looks like Solomon Kane I hope it's an accessible game, Dark Souls is a good game for it's fanbase but hope the new game goes in a different direction, something closer to a western RPG like the Witcher and Dragon Age
I don't care what it is, just LET IT BE TRUE. My guess is that this is a Demon's Souls type of game in a more realistic world with similar core mechanics ...maybe Demon's Souls 2, maybe something else - but thinking about it makes my pants tight.
A true Demon's Souls sequel, maybe, but with greatly expanded mechanics? I'd love that. I liked the Dark Souls games but I'm a bit burnt out on them. A Demon's Souls sequel with a whole new spin on things would be awesome...or at least a game that has similar atmosphere to Demon's Souls (which was, ironically, a lot darker and more twisted/nightmarish than the Dark Souls games).
i'm a massive fan of Demon's Souls, and i loved Dark Souls 1 as well. with that said, though, i'm not the least bit excited about this. why? because it looks like yet another Souls game, but with tweaks. i get that they're good at making Souls games and they have a formula going, but the formula has already worn out on me. i want to see them take things in a new direction and show that they can make different game instead of the same game three times in a row with subtle differences that don't ultimately change the formula. if this is basically the same feel, atmosphere, art style, level design, etc, as the previous Souls games, then i'll pass. and those screenshots make it seem like it's going to be. i hope they prove me wrong, though. From Software are obviously great game designers, i just want to see them step outside their comfort zone.
Over at Gaf, insider DemonNite was setting us up for months: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Yep, it fits right between all the rumors from the last few months. I think this is real as f*** and I can't wait for the E3 reveal =) Name: Beast Soul's (Remember "Project Dark" which turned out to be Dark Soul's?) Release: Late 2015 / Early 2016 Genre: (Character) Action RPG Hype: Over 9000!
If anything I would argue it confirms it as a 'Souls' series game. They usually employ the same character repeatedly in the trailers and initial gameplay videos, and often focus on one specific model for the box art and such. If it were a singular character driven game, they would likely show his face in the screenshots and trailers rather than hide it, as it offers character to the game as a whole to do so. For instance Witcher has a set character, so they advertise it with his face present all the time. Dark Souls and Skyrim do not have set characters, so they advertise it with consistent armour sets rather than a wide variety. Perhaps one reason is to establish some form of consistent brand identity, either way this definitely looks like a Souls game, even down to the fog. Some of the enemies are also just recycled models from Dark Souls 2, the dogs in particular.
yep! the old kind of shotgun.
More Playstation exclusives is never too many.
But but but, PS4 only have Indies. This can't be right. s/
So then pop down to the store and buy them /s Thats what people are complaining about... and im not being console specific
A demon's soul gameplay with modern weaponry.. damn, this is too good to be true
Demon's Souls 2? That fog gate looks Demon's Soulish.
Probably not directly Demon's Souls 2 http://18.104.22.168/forum... but rather a spinoff involving "Beasts" :) Which would be great in my opinion, this way they can keep the core mechanics everybody loves while not being bound to previous design choices.
Very likely spiritual successor from Demon's Souls ( better than Dark 1 and 2 IMO ). REMEMBER THE BROKEN 6TH ARCHSTONE IN DEMON'S SOULS ANYBODY!!?? http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
The one that sits as a dream, a dream of dying in a new world.
But wasn't From Software just purchased by another Dev that doesn't do exclusives?
perhaps this game was in development long before that purchase? if si i would assume project beast would continue regardless
from software can still work with other companies, it's just that it'll be along with kadokawa games, rather than just from software alone
Looks like a another Demon Souls type game. Shotgun in his hand? Could be anything, can't really make it out. But I'm pretty excited cause the Demon/Dark Souls games have become pretty darn good.
AngelicIceDiamond - yeah I wouldn't mind seeing Tenchu reborn. From Software has some great games under their belt over the years. Tons of great options on the PS but Tenchu was easily one of my faves. Stealth Action/Ninja at it's finest. Looks pretty solid. Definitely interested in seeing more about this one.
Project shut up and take my money already
God of boobees hahaha.
I totally agree!
Here, i give you my avatar
Hopefully it's a new Souls game for the PS4. Probably based off Demon's Souls since Sony owns that IP
It looks more like a new IP than a souls game
I'd take either one. Only suspected a new Souls game because of the rumors that came out a few months ago.
^Same here but you have to remember that Demon's Souls 2 was confirmed & funnily also denied by a few sources so this might be "that" game people were talking about. I would prefer a Demon's Souls 2 because I know they couldn't go wrong with that but I'd be happy about everything that comes out of that collaboration.
Are you sure? http://puu.sh/8wdsZ That's definitely the same IP
That fog gate really says otherwise. It's probably in the souls universe, looks mint though. Sony already won E3? lol
Demon's Souls 2?
King's Field 5?
I hope it's a fully new IP and not related to the souls series. Edit: the screens looks great , i hope it's true!
a new ip with the souls philosophy maybe scifi would be rad
It looks like a world of supernatural creatures and your character is a "hunter" of sorts. So we'll see things like zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc. maybe its an MMO? Seperate from the Souls series?
If this is real I wonder what kind of steak Kadokawa has in this since they acquired From Software. Seems odd that Sony would publish it, but maybe Kadokawa just wants to use the Souls IP for manga/animation? IDK. I hope this is real, take my f*ing money already!
*stake unless you think Kadokawa ordered a medium-rare...
kadakawa doesn't have anything in this - it's a sony owned property...kadakawa couldn't use the demon souls property for anything unless they work out a deal with sony - stands to reason they'd (sony) publish it.
That makes sense if project beast turns out to be demons souls 2. I would f*ing love that to be the case. @wakeupcall4 xD, okay thanks dude.
It looks too legit to be fake. So many assets created just for hoax, last time that happened was with the Batman Arkham City coop hoax trailer.
Damn, quickly looked at the title and jumped into the article, thought it was about Shadow of the Beast. bummer.
What? Shadow of the Beast is already confirmed to be developed by Heavy Spectrum which are not exactly famous for AAA games ...it seems like it will be a downloadable title so don't get your hopes up on that title.
Demon Souls 2 pls. From Software pls. Sony pls. ...pls http://puu.sh/8wdsZ (another image with a fog wall?) Miyazaki confirming it??? http://i.imgur.com/kci8sTy....
Please be true !!!! Edit: He removed "Beast" from his twitter
a few people on neogaf said it was a fake twitter account. :| still hopeful tho.
Tenchu too pls. I so miss this series ... But OT, looks really good, has this demon souls feel.
Dude, A solid Tenchu not a tench with 100 levels but only 10 variant level designs. A true tenchu please please please. Not that i want this to be Tenchu i just want Tenchu a true ninja stealth game.
It really gives the Demon/Dark souls vibe for me. But who knows maybe it will be different in many ways.
Here's another screenshot from the thread: http://i.imgur.com/MxcjJp4.... Looks like a fog door...
Oh that is such a fog door....oh my, yes please :D
OMG dude... I will cry if this is fake.
looks like a portal. That's how u cross over from xbox land to sony ville..
LOL funny bubble xD
Looks like Demon Souls maybe in the future? Looks sweet regardless I am very excited :) @Mac Yep that is Demon's Souls alright god damn I am hyped!
Reminds me of Val Helnsig and Army of Darkness
Games are starting to leak! Great stuff for E3. But people then are going to be disappointed that there were not any surprises at the show. (because everything gets leaked beforehand).
Wait a minute. This isn't 3D Dot Game Heroes 2!
That was a fun little game.
Exactly. I'd love another. Wonderful throwback to Zelda and a few other older adventure games. This team is so talented, so I'll buy anything they make.
Wow, this looks really good. I really hope this has something to do with Demon Souls.
This E3 is going to be EPIC!
http://i.4cdn.org/v/1399052... http://i.4cdn.org/v/1399052... 2 more screens
Wow those graphics look really really nice, hope it looks like that e.e
Take everything that you see from E3, target renders.. It will most likely be seriously downgraded on release.
Hey, that's pretty interesting. I thought it was about Shadow of the Beast initially, but a new game with the help of From Software is good news. Still curious about SotB, though-- why has news been so quiet on that game?
