Dark Souls detective Lance McDonald (opens in new tab) is an indie developer turned hobbyist game engineer. He's spent the last few months uncovering cut content from Hidetaka Miyazaki's twisted action RPG series—which has led us to believe Oceiros' baby wasn't always invisible (opens in new tab), and that Pontiff Sulyvahn may have once been Dark Souls 3's final boss (opens in new tab).

Dark Souls: Remastered appears to have launched on Steam a day early (opens in new tab), and McDonald has in turn entered Lordran. 

As revealed on his Twitter feed (opens in new tab), the Soulsborne sleuth discovered 17 unused maps files which contain a host of pre-release assets. They're in the earliest of states, but it's nevertheless cool to catch a glimpse behind From Software's curtain.
