While we wait for the announcement of Bloodborne 2 (because come on, you know it’s going to happen), a YouTuber has found some interesting goodies buried in the original game’s files.
The YouTuber known as Sanadsk, who specializes in uncovering hidden/unused content in the Dark Souls series, recently found some unused monsters for Bloodborne, as well as an NPC. As detailed in the video below, Sanadsk contacted a user that had managed to obtain the files extracted from the game itself, and Sanadsk was eventually able to put together a reel of these models using Marmoset Toolbag 3. According to Sanadsk, the player most likely would’ve encountered the scholar NPC in Byrgenwerth.
Since I’m a sucker for stuff like this, if you’re ever interested in other games that have cut/unused content buried within them, you can check out The Cutting Room Floor. They’re a wiki that specializes in cataloguing games both past and present that have bits and pieces left in them from developers (including Bloodborne).
