"…with its fresh emphasis on a new type of combat – and with the addition of just a little speed – the entire name of the game has changed for me. Bloodborne is, in the limited roster of games I’ve seen at E3 so far, my favorite title of the show. And I can’t wait to see more." -IGN, Colin Moriarty
"Following two shockingly successful and unthinkably brutal action games out of legendary development studio From Software, the team behind Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls is back, and its new game Bloodborne received about as much attention as any other new property on the show floor." – BGR, Jacob Siegal
"Bloodborne may have many of the systems that make the Souls games amazing experiences underneath the hood, but on the surface there's a slick coat of blood that makes this PS4 exclusive look like a tantalizing treat when it arrives next year." - Game Informer, Daniel Track

Gameplay Details

Regain System

In Yharnam, the best defense is a solid, strategic offense.

When youtake damage from enemies, counter-attack the enemy within a certain period of time to regain some of your lost HP. The damage taken initially turns orange, indicating you can earn it back if you are quick enough. Hesitate too long and you’ll lose that health for good.

With a stroonger focus on offense and pro-active combat, battles become more pitched, thrilling and rewarding.

Offensive Parry

Bloodborne encourages characters to say on the offensive, using an equipped firearm as a staggering tool. By unloading a shot right before the enemy's attack lands, the tables are instantly turned, leaving them staggered and open to a devastating Visceral Attack.

Weapons

Bloodborne's vast variety of intricately-detailed transforming melee weapons, supported by a selection of close- and medium-range firearms, gives players a wide range of choices for range, speed and brute force attacks. 

 
 

Online Details

Messengers

These small creatures have crept out of a nightmare, and while they may not look too friendly, they accompany hunters, follow their orders, and take care of messages left for others.

Co-Op Battles

Some of the dangers lurking within Yharnam are better faced with another Hunter or two by your side, but even then, victory is not guaranteed.

Chalice Dungeons

Procedurally-generated to create a new, harrowing experience every time you enter, Chalice Dungeons offer a chance to experience Bloodborne's sense of exploration, danger and reward in all new ways. Play alone or with other Hunters, and share your creations with friends or the world.
