H33rsay: New PS4 exclusive Project Beast in development at From Software

Written by: / / 6 Comments

H33rsay is El33tonline’s round-up of game industry rumours and speculation where we have looks at unconfirmed and unannounced pieces of news emerging from anonymous tipsters, information leaks and generally dubious sources. It may not all be true, but it’s still fun to talk about!


Rumours of a Demon’s Souls successor for PS4 have been swirling around for some time now, and the first purported screengrabs from this project were recently posted on the popular image-based bulletin board 4chan.

If these images are legitimate then From Software is working on a new game codenamed ‘Project Beast’. Previous rumours point to it being a PS4 exclusive developed in collaboration with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and helmed by Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki.

The screens below are certainly very reminiscent of the ‘Souls’ games and in one we even see a Fog Gate which has been used in the series to denote a boss area or demarcate different parts of a level.

With E3 2014 just over a month away and bearing in mind that these screengrabs look like they were taken from a trailer, it wouldn’t be surprising if Sony officially unveiled Project Beast during the expo.

Are you looking forward to hearing more about Project Beast in the months to come? Do you think this game will be a sequel or spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls? Let us know in the comments.
