Take a look at leaked Bloodborne footage

2 min read


Bloodborne from the renowned masters of masochism, From Software may or may not be the Demon’s Souls 2 you’ve been waiting for. It’s being designed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the guy in charge of the excellent Dark Souls, but not the rather lacklustre and soulless Dark Souls 2. It looks excellent, even if it is currently running at a piss-poor frame rate.

It’s being shown behind closed doors at E3, but now, thanks to some liberal and illicit use of a camera, you can see the game in all of its shuddering, stuttering glory.

Honestly? I think it looks excellent, and could shape up to be exactly the sort of game Dark Souls 2 isn’t. The game was announced officially as a PS4 exclusive at Sony’s E3 conference, after spending much of its time being known as Project Beast.

A big difference here is that enemies don’t stand about waiting for you to fight them; they seem to move about with purpose, and will even actively seek you out. It’s also a little more Victorian in its aesthetic than the medieval look Dark Souls sported. the game’s combat also seems a little faster, and the sawn-off shotgun and cleaver the hero wields are far removed from the noble Lordran weaponry.

Still, it’s very much a “souls” game. And that’s reason enough to get excited.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    I feel this genre is getting overdone now. Same with the zombie thing.

    • oVgeeeeee Comet Drop

      How generic is that cover?

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

        So now instead of chin down eyes up it’s become “Face away from camera holding a weapon in both hands while seemingly focused on something in the distance that only the one facing away from the camera can see”

        • Rinceinantici

          What, like this?

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

            That I don’t mind 🙂

          • Rinceinantici

            stupid disqus 😛

          • FoxOneZA

            Hello Guest 😛

          • CaptainNemo42

            No these all turn back to the camera.. But close.

      • Sith JJ

        Wow dude. You said it

      • FoxOneZA

        How generic is the colour scheme? How generic is the character?

    • Darren Peach

      Wow. I am still coming to terms with the fact that I have been bested by Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 for greener pastures ( Clockable games, I know, I am weak……) and you are saying this has been overdone. You sir must be a Ninja.

  • Pieter Kruger

    Seriously that guy was hitting everything but the enemies and they still died? Some controller issues to still sort maybe?

  • oVgeeeeee Comet Drop

    Too much blood too little feathered Griffins snuggling up with last guardians.

    • Rinceinantici

      Why do you think the kid is the guardian 🙂

  • Hammersteyn

    It looks a lot more darker and gloomier, like Demon Souls instead of Dark Souls. Which is terrific.

  • Brady miaau

    I just wanna play a game called Bloodborne.

    Sounds cool

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I really enjoy games where the hero wields clevers. Far more satisfying to outwit your enemies than just hack them to pieces.

  • Consumer of Little Rabbits

    dafuq is up with all these soft ass videos? *note to self, by preamp for e3 2015*

  • Darren Peach

    I look and I drool. But, When I play it, It will be the equivalent of having a needles stuck into my spinal cord until I can no longer tolerate the pain.
