From Software is working on a PlayStation 4 exclusive dark RPG, akin to its Dark Souls games. The game is codenamed “Project Beast” and it looks just like something we’d expect from the people who made the scary and unbelievably tough Dark Souls.
The short, 20-second video reveals the look and atmosphere of the game, which looks like a proper action RPG, just as we expected. We’ve previously reported some leaked screenshots of the game, and now it appears that someone at From Software is leaking videos as well. Unless this is a sneaky PR campaign from the developer and publisher — we wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case.
Project Beast will get a lot of competition from other action RPG titles in the works for the PlayStation 4, games such as Capcom’s Deep Down (which we called the best looking game we’ve ever seen — check out a new trailer here), and The Witcher 3. Both of those games will be released in 2015.
We expect From Software to reveal the game at E3 next month, and it likely won’t be called “Project Beast”, and it likely won’t be another Dark Souls games, as Project Beast is a PS4 exclusive.
