Sony dedicated some of their E3 2014 livestream to talk everything they could about PS4 exclusive Bloodborne, the spiritual successor of Demon’s Souls. Directed by Miyazaki, it will focus more on offensive attributes rather than the traditional Souls style of defensive-to-offensive fighting tradeoff.
In addition to brief glimpses of off-screen Bloodborne gameplay footage, we also learned more about the story and lore behind the title. The city of Yharnham appears to be renown for its study and creation of medicine, in which our protagonist is in dire need of. From what I could gather, the overarching mission is to discover the cure for an ailment plaguing the game’s citizens, as you use a shotgun and cleaver in order to dispatch numerous foes.
With an early 2015 release window being touted right now, I’m surprised we didn’t get to see a lot of Bloodborne gameplay footage on the stream. What we did see didn’t provide much introspective into the title, either, although the killing of monsters did release what appeared to be souls, similar to what we have seen in other From Software games.
Bloodborne will be a PS4 exclusive, coming out early next year.
