Bloodborne Cut Content: Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower

Bloodborne Cut Content: Lady Maria of the Astral Clocktower

Fromsoftware’s Bloodborne’s community involvement can rival even that of Dark Souls, as demonstrated by the hidden gems unearthed years after the game’s initial release. Some hardcore fans of the title have been digging into the files of the game to find various things that never made it into the final version everyone loves so much. Lance McDonald is at it again, now showcasing Lady Maria’s original assets before developers decided to cut it out and make her into a “corpse”.

Bloodborne Lady Maria Cut Content Revealed

In the final version of The Old Hunters, Lady Maria is found be motionless on a large hall, and remains still until the player interacts with her. Once awakened, Lady Maria has a few choice words for the hunter:

A corpse… should be left well alone.
Oh, I know very well. How the secrets beckon so sweetly.
Only an honest death will cure you now.
Liberate you, from your wild curiosity.

Lady Maria’s Original Dialogue (cut from final version)

In the removed scenes, hunters would have been able to approach Maria and have a conversation with her instead.

Hmmm a visitor? How unexpected…
Then the secrets of the church had been laid bare.

Good hunter, lost in the nightmare.

What did you think? Of that beastly legend, and those ailing ward’s of the church.

…I know what you did to them…
It’s not your fault. The nightmare held them, and now they are free.
But, what about you? Have you profited at all?

If  hunter selects “First Option”

Oh, really? Well, that’s a relief.
Now you can leave this Nightmare.
Have respect for the beast hunter Gehrman’s wishes. Besides…
You will not find your enemies here.
Take the relics in this room as your parting prize.

Let them be your strength.
And return to your hunt, good hunter.

What’s wrong, my hunter?
Don’t you hear the hunt calling?
Or do you wish to tease something more from the depths of this nightmare?
Even if it means my murder…

Hmm, look at you. That glint in your eyes.

If  hunters select “Second Option”

I thought as much.
Nightmares and secrets… They’ll only get you so far.
Now you can leave this place.

Have respect for the beast hunter Gehrman’s wishes. Besides…

You will not find your enemies here.
Take the relics in this room as your parting prize.

Let them be your strength.
And return to your hunt, good hunter.

What’s wrong, my hunter?
Don’t you hear the hunt calling?
Or do you wish to tease something more from the depths of this nightmare?
Even if it means my murder…

Hmm, look at you. That glint in your eyes.

Players would then have had a choice to leave Maria alone or kill her. If players were to leave her alone, she will be killed by Simon (this is found by inspecting her corpse data files). Then the game will progress like the version we already have. Touching Maria will lead her to quickly grasp your arm and state her dialogue that everyone knows so well, and a boss fight.
