It’s been awhile since Bloodborne’s release on PS4, and now Titan Comics has released the first preview for its upcoming comic book based on the popular video game.

Bloodborne: The Death of Sleep is written by Ales Kot (Generation Gone, Zero), with art by Piotr Kowalski (Wolfenstein, Dark Souls). The story follows “a nameless Hunter as he awakens in an ancient city where horrific beasts stalk the shadows and the streets run slick with the blood of the damned. Seeking an escape from the endless Night of the Hunt, the Hunter embarks upon a dangerous, gore-filled quest with the hopes of ending Yharnam’s twisted endemic.”

Bloodborne is one of my all-time favorite games. I put close to two hundred hours into playing it and researching its universe, and that was before I even knew there would be a comic -- I was obsessed,” said Bloodborne writer Ales Kot in a press release. “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 #1 is scheduled to hit comic stores and digital devices in February 2018.
