Fans of Bloodborne rejoice, From software’s hard-as-nails lovecraftian romp. The new comic will be published by Titan comics.
Bloodborne originally released back in 2015 and was met with both critical success and praise from fans. The game went on to sell 2 million copies and even received a downloadable expansion known as the Old Hunters which released on November 24, 2015. The title went on to win the Golden Joystick 2015 for the best original game.
The new comic will be titled the Bloodborne: Death of Sleep and will be penned Ales Kot (Generation Gone, Zero) featuring art from Piotr Kowalski (Wolfenstein, Dark Souls). The story, as it is outlined in the press releases, details as: “a nameless Hunter awakens in an ancient city where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned. Seeking an escape from the endless Night of the Hunt, the Hunter embarks upon a dangerous, gore-filled quest with the hopes of ending Yharnam’s twisted endemic.”
Ales Kot went on to talk about his chance to work on the project, he said:
“Bloodborne is one of my all-time favorite games. I put close to two hundred hours into playing it and researching its universe, and that was before I even knew there would be a comic — I was obsessed. I am honored to be working within the Bloodborne universe. There will be mystery, the weird, the eerie, the horrific and the bloody — and there will be an undercurrent of decaying romanticism, walking hand in hand with brain-mashing, soul-cleaving action, together ascending towards the Blood Moon as drawn by the talented and depraved Piotr Kowalski. Ascend with us, Hunters old and new. And do remember — one has to seek Paleblood to transcend the hunt.”
Issue #1 of the Bloodborne: Death of Sleep is slated to hit stores and digital devices in February 2018!
