Bloodborne Chalice Dungeons explained with 1080p screens

Bloodborne is getting people so excited. Maybe it’s the dark ambiance, maybe it’s the punishing gameplay, or maybe it’s all about praising the sun. Now we get more information about the procedurally generated Chalice Dungeons, as well as some fresh and English screens.

Here’s the latest info about the Chalice Dungeons, which everyone apparently wants to know about (although I’m more interested in the main parts of the game).


Both a grave and a place of slumber, these dungeons are not a place where visitors are welcomed. Those who venture here quickly find this out thanks to the many fatal traps hidden throughout the tunnels and halls, such as these guillotine blades covered in the blood of unsuspecting Hunters.

Architectural Variety

The sheer size and adaptibility of the Chalice Dungeons are what makes them so alluring to hunters – that and the promise of treasure and newfound challenge. Not limited to simple rooms or hallways, Dungeons can contain murky swamps, narrow rocky corridors, or even grand, ornate halls teeming with rich detail.

Create and Download New Challenges

The Chalice Dungeon feature includes both standard dungeons as well as procedurally-generated dungeons. Both types of dungeons can be played offline or online with other players, but generating new dungeons requires connecting the game online once to download required data. You can also publish your Chalice Dungeons online to share with other players, and download dungeons created by other Bloodborne players.

Dungeon Threats


Some say these ruins are the tombs of inhuman creatures, and some say they are more a place of slumber. Protectors roam the depths, keeping guard over the quiet. Born in the depths and living off of blood and rotting flesh, they are cold and damp, with bluish-white skin that has never been touched by sunlight, and devolved eyes that are pitch black and sunk deep into their sockets.

Ritual Masters

Whether the ruins are tombs or a mere resting place for something dark and foul, or both, one thing is true: Someone or something lies asleep here. The Protectors also worship what lies beneath, and among the Protectors are a special class of ritual masters that carry out horrific and detestable ritual rites.

Ancient Guard Dog

This gigantic guard dog watches over the underground ruins. Covered in a petrified body hard as stone, clad in a rich cloud of flames, and left directly by the inhuman inhabitants slumbering in the ruins, these special guards are said to be enveloped in these dense flames in order to better carry out their duties through the ages.

And here are some sexy new screens. Yes, I know you’ve seen some of them before, but now they have English translations and shiny ten eighty peas.

It’s almost time to die again. Are you ready for From Software’s offering, or are you still in the fetal position just thinking about it?

      I watched the opening 15 minutes of game play and they actually did a good job of showing how many times you would die in the game in just those 15 minutes…

        Hahaha! Just keep up these posts! Hope Sony reads them all because that’s the exact reason why Sony have no choice but to keep pushing for 1080p, even when it means dropping framerates/AF/feeding ponies “cinematic” bs! Xbone has proven it’s well capable of 1080p, just some lazy devs out there!(Same is obviously true for 3rd party titles where Xbox outperforms PS)????

          Why you hate ponies so much?

          Sony is winning because they aren’t being dicks to their loyal customers…. And the exact opposite is why MS is losing!!
