RPG News Weekly Round Up – December 10th, 2017

Happy weekend from Fextralife! If you’ve been too busy to keep up on the latest in the games we cover or are looking for a refresher, we’ve got your back. Let’s take a look at the comings and goings across the Fextralife Wiki Network. Check out the video above and read on for the text!

Bloodborne

Over the past week, the folks over at YouTube channel Sanadsk,  dug deep into Bloodborne’s  files using specialized software and uncovered a wealth of never-before-seen content from the game. Some assets include unused enemies and bosses such as a twin headed Smouldering demon, color variants of what looks to be a fully furred Cleric Beats as well as some cut NPCs. Some speculate these to be parts of a DLC that was never realized. What are your thoughts? You can check out them out in full, over at the blog.

Furthermore, a set of new images finally gives us a good look at the previously announced Bloodborne  comic book tie-in that’s dubbed, “The Death of Sleep”. These latest pictures feature a variety of covers and two pages filled with comic panels. Which presents us with gruesome action throughout the streets of Yharnam. Have a look yourself right in the blog.

And lastly, From Software revealed a cryptic, short and sweet, trailer at the Gaming Awards 2017. In the video is some sort of winch device followed by the quote “Shadows die twice.” Could this be Bloodborne 2? Hold on to your Trick Weapons, because we may get an answer to that very soon!

Which has been causing headaches for Valve due to “a significant increase in the fees to process transactions on the Bitcoin network”.  Are you perhaps one of the people using this service? If you’re concerned, you can find the complete story over at the blog.
