Dark Souls Remastered Includes Prototype Of Bloodborne’s Upper Cathedral Ward; Video Released
Bloodborne, the PlayStation 4 exclusive game developed by From Software in collaboration with Sony Japan Studios, has been released years after the original Dark Souls, but it seems like the development team had already been working on the game way before its release, as confirmed by something that has been discovered in Dark Souls Remastered.
A modder has recently extracted a map of Bloodborne’s Upper Cathedral Ward from Dark Souls Remastered and later imported it in Grand Theft Auto V. Twitter user Lance McDonald confirmed that the early Bloodborne location was created back when Dark Souls has been in development, and it’s not a new creation of the remaster team.

Interestingly enough, the game also includes a small portion of Boletaria from Demon’s Souls.

Dark Souls Remastered is a more than worthy purchase for newcomers and fans of the series thanks to a few improvements and, most of all, an active multiplayer community.
Jumping into Dark Souls Remastered again isn’t quite the same as your first time through but it’s still a magical journey. And if you’ve never played Dark Souls before? This is is definitely the best way to experience the game that kickstarted a genre of its own. Dark Souls Remastered should be essential for action RPG fans and those wanting to put their skills to the test.
Dark Souls Remastered is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will release on Nintendo Switch this Summer.
