Dark Souls developer From Software has released six minutes of raw gameplay from their latest project Bloodborne, giving us our best look yet at the game. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s expected to launch exclusively on the PS4 sometime next year.
Starting with the very first enemy encounter from the demo, watch the truly perilous combat against human hordes and large scale enemies, as well as battles with malformed beasts with an ally NPC at your side. Make your way through the plague-ridden streets of Yharnam and even visit a dimly-lit house interior and use your trusty torch to light the way, before finally facing the the nightmarish boss from the end of the demo. What dark secrets will you find hidden within? This video features combat showing both the saw cleaver and heavy axe, both of which transform and can be wielded in short and long forms, as well as the brand new Regain combat system that rewards players for countering and striking back.
Face your fears as you search for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire. Danger, death and madness lurk around every corner of this dark and horrific world, and you must discover its darkest secrets in order to survive.
It looks alright, however it also looks a little easier and a little less atmospheric than DKS.
