A great thing when E3 rolls around is that people get to see the latest games that will be releasing in the coming months, and sometimes a brand new IP is shown during one of the conferences.
During the Sony media briefing, a new action RPG called Bloodborne was unveiled. This game is being developed by FromSoftware and will be produced by SCE Japan Studio.
The title will launch in early part of 2015 exclusively for PS4.
The PS Blog recently had Masaaki Yamagiwa, who is from SCE Japan provide some more details about this new game.
The game will take 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.
The players will have to navigate the perilous streets of this city, fighting off nightmarish creatures, malformed beasts and deranged mobs stricken with this horrific illness.
The combat for Bloodborne is based on intense life-threatening battles. One of the ways this happens 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 game will have rich details and also take advantage of the power from PS4. It seems that Bloodborne will be a great game to play when it releases next year.
The one thing that I’m looking forward to is the boss fights, as they should be epic encounters that will challenge players.
