Bloodborne Coming Exclusively to PS4 in 2015, New Details

Hello, PlayStation fans. This is Masaaki Yamagiwa from Japan Studio.

I am here to talk about a new Action RPG, Bloodborne, which will launch early 2015 exclusively for the PlayStation 4 console. Bloodborne is a new collaboration for us, being developed by FromSoftware and produced by SCE Japan Studio. This game will transport players to a dark and terror-filled gothic world, a world full of deranged beings and nightmarish creatures.

Bloodborne Coming Exclusively to PS4 in 2015, New 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.

In Bloodborne, 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.


From the beautiful and melancholic architecture to the debris lining the street, Bloodborne will deliver an extremely rich and detailed world, all thanks to the power of the PlayStation 4 system. In addition, the PS4 system has allowed us to have an expanded draw distance, so we can show more of the world at any one time. New lighting effects allow us to add more atmosphere and tension to the game, making the horrifyingly detailed beasts and giant boss enemies you’ll be facing even more frightening.

I hope to be able to share more about our online features later this year, but I can say that we are developing new kinds of online experiences that allow users to share their adventures. We also look forward to giving fans new ways of playing and sharing thanks via the PS4 system’s Share capabilities.


Special message from Director Hidetaka Miyazaki:
“Creating Bloodborne as a completely new game on the new PlayStation 4 hardware has allowed us to really push the envelope in myriad ways. That being said, in more ways than one, it also very much retains our distinct, signature style. As has been at the core of our development philosophy since Demon’s Souls, we make true games for people who love games. Please watch for more to come on Bloodborne, and thank you very much for your support.”

  • Those are beautiful screenshots. The trailer really doesn’t do the game justice. I can’t wait to play it.

  • When do we see the gameplay? This is the fantastic game which make me buy the PS4.

  • I am really really really glad I went with PS4 this generation.

  • Can’t wait to see more of it. I found the trailer a little bit of a letdown, but the ending of it was great.

    Glad to see stuff from Fromsoftware’s A-team.

  • This is going to be stellar. I really looking forward to this. Lots of great games on PS4’s horizon! It’s a good time to be a gamer.

  • Game will be awesome for sure

  • Will this have the same gameplay and character creation as Demon souls? :D

  • Yes, of course I’ll get this. And, by the way, there is nothing wrong with the combat in Demon’s Souls so you don’t need to run away from it.

  • Very Interesting

  • Can’t wait for this game!

  • Day 1 purchase.

  • Pictures are nice and all but will the common folks be able to see at least a bit of gameplay this week?. Please..

  • These are the games I buy PlayStation for. Keep them coming.

  • BEAST!!!!

  • Is it true the ps4 is not powerful enough to run audio cds, mp3s, 3d blurays, dlna, and bluetooth remotes? Or is it, as some suggest, an active decision to ignore these features in lieu of Sony’s paid services?

  • 60 FPS? Better AI combat mechanics? (no terrible Hit boxes) Demon Souls 2 could still be a better game, if it was fixed.

  • All over this! Like ALL over it!

  • Even though I’m a huge Souls fan and this is my most anticipated game, that trailer is kind of rough. That leaked video was much better.

  • Thank you based Miyazaki.

  • I’ll wait for some gameplay. I didnt enjoy Demon’s Souls and I generally love RPGs

  • We could use some action RPG Vita love

  • The game I want to play the most. Love hearing that it’s taking the Souls game combat in a different direction. More offensive will be a big change from what we’ve been taught, but I can’t wait to see how it plays out. I’ve got a lot of faith in these guys to pull off an amazing game.

  • Subsided_Assasin

    This is one of the Biggest Highlights of E3 for me, I can’t wait for the opportunity to play such an amazing looking game.

  • Thank you Hidetaka Miyazaki for this beautiful masterpiece. I can’t wait!

  • I need this…NOWWWWW.

  • You had me at demon’s souls

  • this game looks ok..very gorish..but no game play sell…if its not trying to top GOD OF WAR then i wont be that interested. Im seriously waiting for a SOCOM type of game ..or a 3rd person battlefield type of game..there’s too many FPS ..its way over due..that’s the experience that kept me a fan of PlayStation! that and Crash Bandicoot…still not sure why SONY hasn’t bought him back but Im fine with Ratchet & least they talk lol

  • This game is going 2 sell a lot of PS4’s 4 Sony , I just pre-ordered it !

  • My System well.

    I don’t even need to see gameplay, Demon’s and Dark Souls were masterpieces, i’m one of Miyazaki’s *****es now.

  • Damn this game gives me a Vampire Hunter D vibe and I love it!

  • Even though the souls games get the best of me I want this for my PS4 Collection.

  • I loved Demon’s Souls but wasn’t super jazzed on Dark Souls. Demon’s was tough but it wasn’t cheap, Dark was cheap. I hope this goes back to Demon’s roots rather than the Dark direction where it is more about memorizing spawn points than being skillful. Very interested in this though.

  • Demon’s Souls was one of the best games on PS3. I”m super excited for this game, and it’ll be the reason I get a PS4.

  • E3 was good but still u guys did not give us hardly any ps exclusives coming out this year everything is coming out next year i bought a ps4 @ launch thinking we where going to get more exclusive games during 2014 but we get stuff that is remastered from the ps3 to the ps4 and they r games i have already played and alot of the games that i have gotten excited for have been delayed till 2015 i love ps but i think i should have waited to get a ps4

  • This is definitely on my radar. I’ve never played Demon Souls or Dark Souls, but I hope Bloodbourne isn’t as punishing as those games. Really interested in seeing how the game will play in comparison to the Souls games. Since this is supposed to come out Early 2015, I imagine gameplay will be shown at GamesCom or Tokyo Game Show.

  • system seller

  • Please. Please. Announce a PS4+Bloodborne bundle.

  • So. Frigging. Excited.

  • I am incredibly excited for this game! Looks amazing, and I love Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls too!

  • Hey From, this is nice, but I STILL WANT ENCHANTED ARMS 2.

  • Am I the only one thinking about a Demon Souls HD with the last broken portal now open, and changing the places of all items and expecial characters up? like a Plus on Steroids?

  • A lot has made me want a PS4, this E3, more than I already did. This game being one of the key factors.

    Praise the Miyazaki! \[T]/

  • This was one of the standout trailers at E3. I love how the dog has a claymation look to it. I hope that is similar to the gameplay.

  • I played that trailer for my gf in the dark and she wigged out…U AINT PLAYING THAT IN THIS ROOM LOL….Then i showed her M.Kombat, The Order:1886, and Let it Die……she walked out of the room…PRICELESS lol…Then I got my game on w/ Hardline Beta lol


  • Damn. I love you.

  • I can’t wait to see more about this game. Love the Souls series!
