A modder has taken Dark Souls Remastered a map of Bloodborne 's Upper Cathedral Ward and opened it within Grand Theft Auto V . Now you can drive a car in it.
It's hard to decide what's weirder here. Why does a level appearing in a 2015 game play in a 2018 remaster of a game originally released in 2011? And, even more, how the hell is Trevor running around in this map from Grand Theft Auto V ? By direct message, Dropoff, the modder who did the trick, answered some of my questions about how he made the video.
The level data is a separate level file in the data of Dark Souls Remastered labeled as seemingly anonymous "m99_99_98_00". The level files that begin with "m99" are often test files within Souls games and so it was those who first dropped Dropoff in
The layered architecture of the extracted map is slightly different from the one actually published version of the area in Bloodborne . While the approach, gate and bridge are all alike, the area outside the building in Bloodborne in this trial version, though the interior of the building is about the same (here is a video of the final release), is missing for comparison ). Lance McDonald, another souls-modder and data digger whose work we have already discussed, has speculated that what eventually became the Upper Cathedral was originally created during the development of the original Dark Souls .
McDonald has also discovered part of the Boletaria level from Demon Souls in the same set of level files
But what about Trevor and his car? Dropoff told me that he extracted the level file from Remastered and imported it into "3D software", which was then repackaged and opened with Grand Theft Auto V . He learned to perform this operation by reading tutorials, which really questions what I do in my free time. I mean, I can not find any interesting test cards in any video games.
It's fascinating that this map was hanging around before 2011, it's amazing that you can drive a car in the Upper Cathedral Ward Bridge, and it's great that people get involved in this kind of work. Now all you have to do is find out if Trevor can find any annoying stories in the unfinished stage.
