From veteran developers FromSoftware and visionary creator Hidetaka Miyazaki comes Bloodborne, a dark action role-playing game set in the decrepit gothic city of Yharnam. The player takes on the role of “The Hunter”, who must embark on a quest to retrieve “Paleblood” in a city ridden by a blood-borne disease. As the Hunter journeys deeper into his quest, they discover intriguing mysteries and find themselves fighting to rid the city of its plague.

Carrying the hallowed legacy of the Souls series of games, Bloodborne retains its predecessors’ notorious difficulty and game mechanics, while innovating in other ways. Armed with melee weapons and firearms, players must overcome hideously plagued enemies and fight frightening bosses as they journey through the streets and environments of Yharnam. Bosses, as is common with the Souls games, remain a central focus of the game and players are forced to adopt inventive strategies to counter their devastating attacks. Grunt enemies on the other hand, range from mobs of formerly human enemies to dark, twisted beasts that will spare no quarter. The game also features the return of the intricately interconnected level design of Dark Souls, requiring players to find connections and shortcuts to make their own traversal safer.

Requiring a more offensive approach as compared to the Souls games, Bloodborne introduces the new Regain system, which allows the player to regain lost health by striking enemies within a short window of time, underlining the game’s thematic emphasis on blood. If the player does end up dying however, they leave “Blood Echoes”, which can then be retrieved in a future life to increase the currency the players have. This currency can then be spent in the Hunter’s Dream, the one true safe place in Bloodborne, where players interact with mysterious non-player characters. As in the Souls games, players can choose to join Covenants: organizations that have their own view of the twisted, dark world of Yharnam and allowing players to engage in the world even more deeply.
