From Software's leaked Project Beast

Beast

Rumors have been circulating for a while that the next game from From Software won’t be another Dark Souls, but rather a new Demon’s Souls. Now perhaps we should start calling it Beast Souls. Or Dark Beasts. Or Demon’s Beasts. Or just accept it’s going to be “You Will Die from Beasts”.

Over on NeoGaf, a bunch of pictures have emerged that appear to show off a new project with the working title “Project Beast”. Considering that Dark Souls had the working title “Project Dark”, perhaps this is pointing towards From Software’s Beast Souls. However, based on the aesthetic, it could very well be a Demon’s Souls 2.

I died far too much in Demon’s Souls – even more than in Dark Souls. That game was simply unforgiving, and required grinding at a level I haven’t seen since old school JRPGs, but it had fantastic level design and was a seriously rewarding game once you slogged through. It was clearly the jumping off point for Dark Souls and its sequel. If From Software can take what they’ve learned from those two games and apply it to a reimagining of Demon’s Souls, they could be onto something really interesting.

Looking at the pictures, which could turn out to be faked images, it seems a bit odd – is the main character wielding a katana and a shotgun? It certainly looks gothic in design, perhaps this is some strange steam punk version of the Demon’s Souls universe? Or maybe that isn’t a gun but some other alternative weapon/shield. What can you make out from the images? Do you think this is the real deal?

    Maybe it won’t be “You have died” but “You have been eaten”.

          Why even bother carrying weapons or armour then?

            You need to get the meat yourself.
            On the plus side after the braai is over the uncooked meat gets made into Biltong for the next level.

            Well you don’t want hot coals or sparks landing on your naked, unprotected flesh.

            Ah. True true. Thanks.
            Jeez. This could’ve ended really badly if it wasn’t for your guidance. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Yup, pirate sabre, judging by the hilt

        That hilt design is apparently a popular design.
        Even Napoleon’s infantry used that design.

          Really? Don’t really know what category it would fall into, always just associate it to pirates

            The beauty of that hilt design is that you can punch with it.
            Some even had spikes just to make the punch more effective.

            Pirates often used cutlasses.
            A cutlass has a similiar design but with a thicker, heavier and shorter blade more suited for cutting through ropes.

            Ahh yes, Cutlas is much thicker , you’re right. Some rapiers has this design too, but much thinner, more for the elegant feel.

            I will always prefer Katanas though, something beautiful in that simplistic design

            Katanas are one of the greatest sword designs created.
            Both beautiful and functional.

            I wouldn’t call them simplistic though.

            By simplistic, I mean mostly the looks though. It’s clean and simple. Maybe simple is the wrong word. It’s elegant.

            Agreed.
