Spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, “Project Beast” leaked [SCREENSHOTS] [RUMOR]

Project Beast (7)

Something called Project Beast has leaked out of 4chan. While we don’t normally report on rumors that come from 4chan, this particular one comes with plenty of pictures and information that leads us to believe its validity.

According to 4chan, Project Beast is something that FROM SOFTWARE is working on. Some impressions from the video the screenshots come from detail a “huge pyromancy fireball,” shotguns as weapons, a “shining magic sword” and some other things.

From what we can tell, this looks like it could be the spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls that FROM SOFTWARE is rumored to be working on exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Judging by the atmosphere given off by the screenshots, that looks to be true.

What do you guys think? Are you ready to explore this nightmare? Let us know in the comments below.

    Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demons Souls..it started as Demons Souls 2, but they decided to change the name

    • Tyler Finnie

      They didn’t change the name. They couldn’t used the name Demon Souls 2 because It’s owned by Sony and since they were releasing for both consoles without an exclusive agreement they created a new name and thus a new IP

      • RyuNoHadouken

        Oh, ok…cool

    • Shauneepeak

      It actually started as Dark Ring not Dark Souls. But Dark Ring is British slang for, well to put it politely butthole.

      • RyuNoHadouken

        didnt know that…hahahaha

  • Remi82

    Yep its got my attention.

  • Hipster Victor

    So why cant they just say Demon Souls 2 if thats the case of it being exclusive to Playstation 4?

  • Crowded House

    I’ll be buying my PS4 now.

  • I hope it’s Demons Souls 2, I hate the Dark Souls series because it was just a down grade from Demons Souls. I can’t wait for this

    • Anakin Skywalker

      I couldn’t disagree more but Demon Souls isn’t bad.

      • Soooo you like deliberately bad gameplay to make it seem hard? Okay… that’s your opinion and I respect it

        • Froztken

          Dude they have pretty much the same gameplay…

  • Anakin Skywalker

    This doesn’t make much sense its well known fact that Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demon Souls. Perhaps from here on out From should tag all of their game ads with “Spiritual Successor to Demon Souls,” it should sell like hot cakes.

    • If this is going to be an EXCLUSIVE game for the PS4 than there is no doubt that this will be Demons Souls because Sony owns that name and franchise, Dark Souls is a completely different game.
