A look at From Software's upcoming PS4 exclusive.

Project Beast

Four short videos of Project Beast, leaked earlier this month as a collaboration between Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio and From Software, have surfaced online via 4Chan.

Watch the clips via the links below:

If you can’t watch WebMs, you can find GIFs here.

Watch them all in video form below.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    These casuals. They should have just left them in gif format if there’s not any sound. Sorry, just don’t care for the webm format right now even though people are trying to shift from gif to that for future uploads :p

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I added a link for the GIF versions. =)

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Good. It’s kind of annoying having to continue to click ‘play’ every time just to see it in motion. That’s my only real problem with webm format. I was expecting sound added for this, but no dice, lol.

        Thanks for the gifs :3

    • 罪罰

      Low quality gifs taking forever to load ftw.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        High quality short movies I have to click ‘play’ on repeatedly just to watch over and over again ftw.

        • 罪罰

          Having to click things on computers ftw

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            It has nothing to do with that, but okay X3

  • pekot

    I really hate leaks like this

    This game looks fantastic and I really wanted to be surprised by its reveal in E3

    • Unretributed

      You didn’t have to ruin it for yourself, you chose to watch it!!

      I’m not going to watch them,

      • MrFinalgamer

        *SPOILERS* It looks great! Graphically it’s incredibly good ^_^

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Well, if anything, at least it confirms Project Beast is the real deal.

          • MrFinalgamer

            I always wonder how selective leaks can be. Why aren’t there any leaks for TLG, or something like that???

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              You know how tight the lid on that is right now? It’s like asking why someone can pull a sword out of a stone, but why can’t they pull the sword out of the stone.

              TLG is legendary right now. It’s basically the holy grail of gaming news, even more so than FFXV, lol.

      • pekot

        Can’t … resist

  • 罪罰

    Victorian/Dark Demon Souls with Guns.
    I am so ready my body has created an electric field that repels all the money from my wallet to the screen.

    • MrFinalgamer

      That must suck, when you need to actually pay for the thing. Are you going to give them your monitor too???

      • 罪罰

        I’ll give the my souls.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    gaf apparently lost its mine

  • Mexcomesback

    /v/ – videogames

    lol

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Added a video version. A bit crappy compared to the webms and gifs, but hey, options.

    • Mexcomesback

      Thx

  • Mexcomesback

    I’m glad i bought a PS4, it’s a shame that this game will be released in 2015

  • Protagonist

    Looks like it has the same mechanics as the souls series, but it has a pirate like theme to it. I was hoping for a completely new series, but this could be demon souls 2, due to the white entrance of souls..

  • badmoogle

    Holy mother of God!!! From Software is on FIRE!!!!

    • Budgiecat

      it’s heating up. I’ll save on FIRE!!! for when there’s a PS4 tenchu and a new PS4 A.C.E. game…

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Sweet Baby Jesus!!!!!

  • Mexcomesback

    How do we know this is a PS4 exclusive?

    • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

      *SMH*

    • 罪罰

      Made with SCEJ

    • Dystopiq

      ” a collaboration between Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio and From Software”

      Reading is hard.

      • Mexcomesback

        Is it already confirmed? As far as i know, this is just a rumor, i bet this is coming for Xbox One and PC.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          well i guess a person can dream

        • 罪罰

          how much do you wanna bet.

          • Mexcomesback

            Whatever you want, but i don’t know why people suddenly assume this is a PS4 exclusive.

            • 罪罰

              because every info leaker is saying so, because Shuhei Yoshida himself said so, because a sony rep posted these webms.

              • Mexcomesback

                That doesn’t confirm anything, also i need source about Yoshida confirming this game.

                • 罪罰

                  le sacas a la apuesta.

                • The Moeshit

                  Ssshhh, you hear that?

                  That’s the sound of desperation and port-begging.

                • ZoneDaiatlas

                  If Project Beast is actually a sequel to “Demon’s Souls” then it’s a console exclusive since SONY OWNS THE DEMON”S SOULS IP….

            • The Moeshit

              It happened before. You know, Demon’s Souls.

        • MrFinalgamer

          The game itself was a rumor to begin with. The fact that the game actually exists, kind of adds validation to the info that came along the leak of Project Beast, of it being exclusive, don’t you think?

          • Mexcomesback

            Yeah but it’s not a guarantee, this game might as well be multiplatform.

        • Dystopiq

          These webms are rumors as is this being a collaboration between Japan Studio and From. We’ll find out soon enough.

    • shogunknight

      You can check the sub heading, its a joint project between sony and from software

      • Mexcomesback

        But it’s not confirmed yet, i wouldn’t tag this as a PS4 exclusive, i bet that this will come for Xbox One with exclusive DLC content.

        • shogunknight

          Well, none of us can be sure. But why would Japan studio help work on a game that doesnt end up exclusive to their platform?

          • Mexcomesback

            How do you know that Japan Studio is working on this?

            • shogunknight

              Did you read the article?

              • Mexcomesback

                Yeah i read it, but it doesn’t confirm anything, what if the leaker is lying to us?

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  I think it’s more likely you are the one lying to us :p

                  • Luna Kazemaru

                    let him dream

                    • Sevyne

                      His dreams will be crushed when this is a Wii U exclusive. Isn’t it so clear? I mean, the one tree’s branches are shaped into a U.

                      I love making random shit up.

                    • Mexcomesback

                      I would love this if this comes for Wii U, i am planning to getting one.

                    • Sevyne

                      It definitely won’t, but I’m not one to complain when Wii U gets games since I already have one.

                • shogunknight

                  No one knows right now, you may be right or wrong. Lets just hope it gets revealed, that at least would be just enough to make my day in Sonys E3

          • MrFinalgamer

            Because Sony Japan feels like doing a good deed, and help out on making this game, instead of doing something like, I don’t know, GR2, or LoD2 =/

            • Sevyne

              Ummm, GR2 is already a thing being worked on. I feel your pain with LoD2 though. However, I’d take this game over both of those easily.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Well GR2 is a thing, but we haven’t seen a thing about it since the teaser that happened a year ago >_<

                LoD2 should be a thing! I hope Oreshika sells well enough for Sony to invest in more in-house JRPGs!

                • Sevyne

                  Oh I agree that LoD2 should be a thing.

            • Budgiecat

              Or Dark Cloud 3
              Or WKC 3
              Or Rogue Galaxy 2
              Or Legend of Legaia 3
              Or Alundra 3
              Or Hungry Ghosts 2
              Or Another Century’s Episode 4
              Or a new tenchu

        • The Moeshit

          How much are you willing to bet?

        • Sevyne

          Sure it’s not 100% confirmed yet, but I find myself trusting the person who leaked it in the first place with picture/video evidence over random gematsu poster spouting tales from his ass, lol.

          Anyway, no matter what it ends up on, I’ll be there to buy it.

    • https://twitter.com/Panda_castro Panda

      The guy who leaked it say its a PS4 exclusive.

    YES. IT LOOKS AMAZING. I LOVE SOULS. I AM JUMPING AND TYPING. PURE JOY.

  • shogunknight
  • Jay

    Ahhhhh… It looks glorious.

  • badmoogle

    The atmosphere,the animations,the shotgun,dem souls in the fog gate…

    • MrRobbyM

      Miyazaki has returned to cleanse us of Dark Souls’ sequel.

      • badmoogle

        Yup!Like i said some time ago i think DS2 is a really good game (especially when you consider that it was made by an almost completely different team than Demon’s and Dark1) but it’s definitely the weakest of the Souls games so far.

  • The Moeshit

    Kinda feel bad for Miyazaki and From that this leaked. Could’ve been a nice surprise.

    Looks great, though. MC design is pretty cool.

  • The Moeshit

    /v/ can be not shit sometimes.

    • Mexcomesback

      I am surprised that the leaker posted this at /v/ instead of neogaf.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        …4chan has leaked plenty of things before Neogaf got their hands on it. Neogaf doesn’t get everything first, you know. Also, the “fag” comment was unnecessary.

        You were already banned once. Try to be nice this time.

        • Mexcomesback

          No fun allowed

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            You can have fun without using that term.

            • Mexcomesback

              Yeah, i already edited the comment, i’m not gonna hurt feelings ;).

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Good. Let’s try to keep it that way ;)

              • MrRobbyM

                Don’t use words that were used to oppress others. Unless, you know, you are considered said word. Then as long as it comes from a place of love, feel free to use it as much as you want.

          • The Moeshit

            When in Rome, do what Romans do.

            You’re in Gematsu, not /v/. Don’t post like you’re in /v/.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Have you seen the /v/ Musical? IMO it was incredibly hilarious, and well done!

      • The Moeshit

        The latest /v/GA was actually good. Unlike the previous 2.

        “Baaaawwww weeaboo shits winning awards. I’m so butthurt”. Delicious tears.

  • bloodiOS

    For the sake of convenience, I merged all the WEBM clips into one. Since I merged them and not reconverted, don’t worry about any loss in quality. Also, like the individual clips, it still won’t run on Chrome, so just stick to Firefox.

    http://a.pomf.se/iyvdus.webm

    Anyway, dayum! That was awesome! If this is released in the West before Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian, I’ll buy a PS4 just for it.

    • Mexcomesback

      Oh you bet that this game will come out before XV and Last Guardian.

    • MrFinalgamer

      You’ll buy a PS4 for $400, but not a Vita for $200 for 2-3 games that you already own? ='(

      Hope you enjoy your PS4 when you buy it, though.

      • bloodiOS

        I might have already bought a Vita by then, who knows. We’ll see how I’ll fold that shit ;)

    • MrRobbyM

      If this is confirmed at E3(which I will be in a theater for) with a 2014/early 2015 release date, then I will purchase a PS4 that same night.

      • Budgiecat

        2 of em. one for me.

        • Mikail

          make it 3 please :P

    • EX+

      I have a feeling that all of the games you mentioned will be released in 2015. Including MGS5. Can’t wait for this!

  • 罪罰

    Just a quick note, most of the original Demon Souls/Dark Souls developers didn’t work on DK2, so at the least I’m relieved the main honchos are working on this.

    • Mexcomesback

      Yeah Dark Souls 2 was kinda underwhelming.

      • Gustavo Rosario

        Really? Why isn’t anyone ever just whelmed? XD I for one was quite whelmed by Dark Souls II.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Sounds like the whole debacle with Arkham Origins. At least DK2 wasn’t plagued with bugs, right?

      • 罪罰

        No, but it was not what I expected, Underwhelming.

      • MrRobbyM

        Mostly due to the higher budget.

    • adhesive

      Actually, most of them did work on the game, it’s just they had quite a few extra people working on it too. This whole “B-Team” thing is just nonsense and it’s an excuse that people go to when they refuse to admit they’re burned out on Souls games.

      • 罪罰

        nah, checked the credits.

      • Sevyne

        That’s a flat out lie and you know it.

  • miyamoto
  • Zackasaur

    Ho. Lee. Shit.

  • Sevyne

    No words can truly express the hype!

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks ace :D

    Though why am i not surprise that this game will come out before FInal Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III and The Last Guardian :

    Can’t wait for the full reveal!!

    • Budgiecat

      and Agent

      • tokyobassist

        Hard to get excited about a game that doesn’t exist outside of a name.

  • Elvick

    Yummy~

    Also to quote something funny from a neogaf user, “so that’s where Dark Souls 2’s lighting went”.

  • HighBrowDrifter
  • MrRobbyM

    Vaati thinks it’s possible that this can be a reboot of Shadow Tower. There were guns in that game and the font for Project Beast is very similar to the Shadow Tower logo.

  • Audie Bakerson

    This looks really suspicious. Why would someone leak screenshots then leak videos of the exact same sequence? If it IS real, it isn’t a real leak, it’s just Sony marketing (anyone remember that kid who wanted the Playstation Portable (TM) and refereed to everything by its full product name?)

    • Elvick

      Yeah, it’s so crazy that someone could leak screens of a trailer… then leak some of that trailer.
      http://www.themudflats.net/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/t2SXmyA.gif

      • Audie Bakerson

        Your choppy, uneeded gif is annoying.

        It just raises more questions if the screenshots were from a trailer: Why just those screens? Why just these parts?

        If someone has the time to convert them to webms (which is still uncommon and not something you’ll find on an office PC), they clearly aren’t doing it under watchful eyes so any time argument falls apart .

        When is the last time there was ANY leak like this of any game yet to be announced? Employees mispeak, websites have stuff hidden in the code and trailers go up early, but blatant prerelease leaks? Almost never happen.

        Of course the biggest red flag is how a game supposedly being made by two Japanese studios is getting leaked not on a Japanese site, but an English one in English with an English name and English post.

  • tokyobassist

    Please be awesome!

    • True Gamer

      IT WILL BE MORE THAN AWESOME!!!!

      • tokyobassist

        That’s the same thing people said about Dark Souls II and that game…you know what I’m tired of playing the nice guy about it so let me explain.

        The game is extremely underwhelming. There are things about it that I really like but sum of it’s parts wasn’t enough to overshadow how inferior it is to the other games as a whole. I hate hearing “Oh well if you look at it for it’s own merits” crap. IT’S A FRICKIN’ SEQUEL! There are certain things to be expected and those expectations weren’t met.

        The game masturbates to it’s own reputation and really feels like they just don’t understand what made Souls games awesome. The lore is crap, the “nostalgia” pandering is obnoxious and exists just to be there, the PvE is completely borked, the conflicting design choice of DS1’s interconnected world and the level select from DeS just doesn’t work for this game.

        That’s why I hope Project Beast is awesome. I want to play a proper “Souls” game. That said I still respect those that enjoy DS2.

        • Jay

          First I thought it would be a rant, but I actually agree with your post… Demon’s Souls still stands head and shoulders above the rest IMO.
          Before they started focusing more on difficulty than the quality of the product.

          • tokyobassist

            I won’t be a punk about it an not mention it’s merits without a doubt and I appreciate you reading what I posted since most people just don’t want to hear any sort of grievances others have due to hype or whatever lol.

            Some of things I really enjoyed was the streamlined weapon crafting (although that was shot in the ass due to most of the important resources being available during the half quarter of the game), being able to reset your stats, the dedicated servers are even leagues beyond even DeS, all types of characters builds are now viable in PvP, etc.

        • True Gamer

          lol I like that statement “The game masturbates to its own reputation” lol. On another note, I can relate with your post, but also will add that the series to me is a huge relief from all the genres I usually play, such as fps, racing games, etc. While Dark Souls 2 made things a lot easier in terms of conveniences, such as warping at start…..and all of the above lol, I remain impressed by their Souls titles. As for a proper Souls game, I personally believe that they all retain such ethic, even though Demon Souls is by far the most memorable and respected by both me and my friend’s perspective.
