You may recall that Titan Comics and Bethesda recently teamed-up to bring comic book tie-ins of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, and Dishonored 2 to avid readers and fans. Well, Titan is at it again with an announcement that is sure to warm many-a-Hunters’ hearts. Bloodborne is getting its very own tie-in comic.
GamesRadar reports that Titan Comics will be publishing Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep, which will be a new tale centered around a nameless Hunter prowling the streets of Yharnam doing what Hunters do best: slaying beasts and solving mysteries. It will be written by Ales Kot and the art will be done by Piotr Kowalski.
There’s no word on whether the events of the comic will take place before, after, or during the events of the game, but its sure to be a thrilling story, as Kot says that he is well-acquainted with the universe.
“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.”
Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep will release in February 2018, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait that long to get your next injection of the bloody streets of Yharnam. This past July, a Dark Souls modder introduced a few Bloodborne weapons into the game, bringing a little gothic horror to the fantasy realm.
