The Playstation Blog has just revealed some new details on From Software’s just announced PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne.
Bloodborne is sounding very interesting for single players and has strong ties to From Software’s previous PS3 exclusive, Demon’s Souls, as Bloodborne will retain a lot of the gameplay mechanics from that game, reinvigorating them for the new game. You can checkout the full set of gameplay details from the PSBlog just below.
The combat is based on intense life-threatening battles. One of the ways we are bringing that sense of danger to life is by keeping the deep strategic elements from Demon’s Souls, while also transitioning from the passive and block-and-attack style of Demon’s Souls to a quicker, more offensive and active combat style with close-range weapons and guns.
The first story details for the game were also revealed by the Playstation Blog. It’s pretty interesting so I won’t try to butcher the details by translating it into my own words. So, checkout the details.
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.
Finally, we’ve also gotten the first screenshots of the game as well which show some truly incredible detail. It’ll be great to see the game in action, hopefully sooner, rather than later. Checkout the screenshots just below.
