Take with a grain of Smelter Demon sized salt.
Dark Souls developer From Software is rumored to be working on a new game codenamed "Project Beast," if a clutch of unverified screenshots posted on NeoGAF are to be believed.
The screenshots, which depict a shotgun-wielding character exploring ruined temples and cemeteries populated by undead creatures, certainly echo From's distinctive moody art style. The original 4Chan post was reported to have described a "giant mindflayer type enemy," "a character placing a shining magic sword into a pedestal at the base of a statue," and the text "this is a nightmare," among other things. There was no insight as to how the images ended up on the site, so at the very least, enjoy this as very clever fan art.
All total rumour and speculation until we hear otherwise, we've reached out to Sony Japan and will update with anything we hear back.
