The first footage of the still-unannounced title known as Project Beast has purportedly surfaced.

Supposedly developed by From Software, the famed developer of Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls series, this new game follows much of the same direction as its spiritual predecessors.

A series of leaked clips were pieced together by members of NeoGAF to create a single pseudo-trailer for the unofficial game, showing a shotgun-wielding character that was revealed in a screenshot leaked earlier this month.

The ‘trailer’ shows this character roaming through a world with a heavy Souls-inspired atmosphere, fighting familiar looking enemies on his journey, walking through similar Mist or Fog Gates to those found in the Souls games, and eventually approaching an indiscernible, tentacled boss.

Project Beast is rumored as a PlayStation 4-exclusive, and is believed to be a collaborative project between From Software and Sony Japan Studio, the latter of which published Demon’s Souls as an exclusive on PlayStation 3 in 2009.
