Bloodborne

May 21, 2015, Author: James Sheppard

After years of niche and middling franchises, From Software have really gotten into a groove with the Souls games. With stunning, bleak worlds to explore, cryptic lore and game mechanics, and an infamously harrowing difficulty level, Demon’s and Dark Souls have consistently divided gamers between two camps: those who hate them, and those who fervently relish their unique brand of challenge.

Creative Director Miyizaki’s newest creation is the PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne. There may be no title continuity here, but make no mistake – Bloodborne is a Souls game right to the core in all but name, for better or worse. Nonetheless, it’s a refreshing take on the formula, a grand and foreboding construct, and a true flagship title for the PlayStation 4 in every regard.
