New Details On PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne

Posted June 10, 2014 by Ryan Campbell in Video Games

Fresh of their big reveal at Sony’s conference last night From Software, that people that brought you Dark Souls 1 & 2 will be bringing a new exclusive to the Playstation 4. Its called Bloodborne and it is indeed the spiritual successor to their PS3 exclusive Demon’s Soul. On the Playstation Blog it was revealed the developing while being headed up by From Software the publishing will be handled by SCE Japan Studio. The game hopes to “transport players to a dark and terror filled gothic world full of deranged beings and nightmarish creatures”.

They went on into detail how the game will build on the systems they established in Demon’s Soul. On the topic of combat they plan to “keep the deep strategic elements of Demon’s Soul, while also transitioning from a passive and block attack style….to a quicker, more offensive and active combat style with close range weapons and guns.”

We also got some first details on the story,  “Bloodborne takes place in an ancient, forgotten city called Yharnam, known for an old medical remedy. Over the years, many hopeless and afflicted people have made long pilgrimages to Yharnam in search of help. As the main character, you are one of these travelers. However, you find that Yharnam is also cursed with a horrible endemic illness. You must navigate the perilous streets of this city, fighting off nightmarish creatures, malformed beasts and deranged mobs stricken with this horrific illness. Face your fears as you discover the secrets and mysteries of this dark and horrific world where danger, death and madness lurk around every corner.”

To finish it off we got a special message from Director Hidetaka Miyazaki:
“Creating Bloodborne as a completely new game on the new PlayStation 4 hardware has allowed us to really push the envelope in myriad ways. That being said, in more ways than one, it also very much retains our distinct, signature style. As has been at the core of our development philosophy since Demon’s Souls, we make true games for people who love games. Please watch for more to come on Bloodborne, and thank you very much for your support.”
