Bloodborne Gets A Tie-In Comic Book In February 2018

Fear the Paleblood! Titan Comics just announced a tie-in comic for Bloodborne, featuring an entirely new story set in Yharnam. As reported by Gamesradar, Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep is set to begin the hunt in February.

It's unclear when in Yharnam's timeline the comic takes place, but it features another nameless Hunter embarking on a quest into the dark, beast-filled streets of Yharnam.

Titan Comics, which released tie-ins for The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus earlier this year, has a history of quality licensed comics and the talent behind Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep promises to continue that good work. Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep will be written by Ales Kot and feature art by Piotr Kowalski.

Fans of Bloodborne's Gothic, cosmic horror should expect more of what they love, but Kot also wants to welcome newcomers to Yharnam. "There will be mystery, the weird, the eerie, the horrific and the bloody," Kot said in a press release. "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."

Although it won't take the place of a proper sequel, Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep seems like a good opportunity for fans to return to Yharnam's plague-ridden streets when it comes out in February.
