PS4-Exclusive RPG Bloodborne Getting Gameplay Trailer at Gamescom

Less than 24 hours to go until we see the game in action.

Sony will show off gameplay for upcoming role-playing game Bloodborne, a PlayStation 4 exclusive from the makers of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, tomorrow during its Gamescom briefing, the company announced today. Sony teased tomorrow's reveal through a video on Instagram (above) showing a dungeon door shaking as a (probably nasty) force on the other side bangs on it.

Sony's Gamescom conference kicks off tomorrow, August 12, at 10 AM PDT (after Microsoft's and before Electronic Arts').

Originally leaked as "Project Beast," the game was officially announced as Bloodborne during Sony's E3 press conference in early June. The game is in development at From Software in association with Sony Japan Studio. Demon's Souls key designer Hidetaka Miyazaki is at the helm of Bloodborne after he did not work on Dark Souls II, except in a supervisory role.

From Software announced last month that Bloodborne would be playable at Gamescom, marking the game's first public appearance. Tickets for the show, held August 13-17 in Cologne, Germany, are sold out. However, if you show up at the venue after 2 PM local time, you'll have a shot at buying a discounted ticket. Details about these special tickets are available on the Gamescom website.

I URGE you all! STOP BUYING consoles! Let console industry FALL!

Exclusives, exclusives my my the exclusives. This is a healthy good things for consoles as it greatly encourages publishers and developers to put out top tier AAA content, no one wants an Aquaman exclusive, but will give a game/IP above lower licensing fees to support their console only.  True not everyone can get to play every game they may want, but it will start getting consumers to educate themselves on what games each console offers, again a good thing.

I would really like to play the game, but i dont want to do the mistake of buying the console for just one damn game - but Dark Souls 2 wasn't really good and it would be great to have something more of the quality of the first Dark Souls - PS+ is a bad thing for playing games and i dont like to buy a game while i know i have to pay every year again just to be able to play it.


Guess i would feel to much a fool to buy the game and console and PS+ memebership to be able to play just one game for only one year ... paying over 500$ for that ... well even if its better then Dark Souls, nothing gives a reason to be so foolish - i would do it without that stupid PS+.


After Dark Souls 2 i am to afraid to be disappointed about another Souls like game.if Bloodborne isn't much better then DS2, it simply would be one of the stupiest things i ever did.

I also cant say that i dont feel that fromsoft is going for money only now ...DS2 should come again for PS4 - are you kidding? i somehow have the feeling we could see DS2 like it was shown in the trailers for PS4 and Xone - if they don't come with a free patch for PC Version ... well that simpyl would be the last Fromsoft game i bought.

@Lykanthropie yeah, i don't need my ps4 yet, really.  Wolfenstein is fun though (is it on the ps3?).

@Lykanthropie PS membership is worth having. Mate i finish few games a year that PS Plus offers, dont see whats a problem with that. And if you cant find any other good games on PS4 tha lol man.

Lykanthropie
Lykanthropie

@WolfgarTheQuiet @Lykanthropie Maybe, but that doesn't have anythign to do with it. You need PS+ to be able to play a game, and something like bloodborne (if as good as Dark Souls maybe) would be entertaining for a few years or at least till a better game like this would came out.

that would mean you need to pay like 600-700$ to be abel to play it for a few years.

and multiplayer i absolutly essantial.

You get a lot free stuff, but i dont care about it, i dont need the games i own those i already wanted and could get the rest for free on PC if i would want them.

Lykanthropie

@WolfgarTheQuiet What else would the PS4 offer? i dont see anything another few boring shooters and action games like shadow fall, second son or yet to come order 1886?

Just like with PS3 it will take years till there a few good games that give you reasons to buy the console.

PC is strong this gen - only exclusives matter and bloodborne would be the only reason for me to buy the console ...

When this game comes out . I will be buying some replacement controllers for my PS4 :P

I love the Souls series, but unless I see something really fresh and exciting, I won't hold my breath.

Well the 30fps limit on a PS4 sounds kind of underwhelming, especially considering the mundane graphics, and limited non-open world design of corridors and fake barriers. And yes lets face it, its not open world. 

Btw I love the Souls series,  I just don't deny the facts.

wowwow27
wowwow27

@GunEye what game are you referring to?  is there more info on this one?

wowwow27
wowwow27

@GunEye @wowwow27 that just means they're pushing the hardware, probably won't see 60fps till ps4 is in its 3rd or 4th year.  unless its on last gen too.

GunEye

@wowwow27 @GunEye I have to disagree. Unless its a staggering open world game, which it isn't, PS4 is capable to reach closer to 60fps. And people are foolish if they think 45 or 55 fps for intsance is worse than stable 30fps. The PS4 can probably make this game run at 60fps, I doubt it has much of a graphic improvement over DS2.


Hope I am mistaken though. 

wowwow27

@GunEye @wowwow27 well if the ps4 is so similar to the pc for programming perhaps. but I'm sure they will get better at programming for the ps4 near the end of its life.  it still has that new car smell.

GunEye

@WolfgarTheQuiet @wowwow27 Yeah I am tired of open worlds myself, unless they are really interesting, which I found none so far. And don't forget the magic words: "Living Breathing Ecosystem".

Open world tend to be tedious and somewhat confusing. Although I wish Dragon's Dogma had a real massive open world.. that was that game's #1 issue. Sometimes I rather have a good open-map level design (like in Souls), than a huge bland open world.

@wowwow27 haha amen brother!
another game I am really looking forward to is Shadow of Mordor, there is something about it that looks extremely fun. You own DS2? on which platform?

this is one of couple of titles that will convince me to get a ps4 at the end of 2014.

This is the game I'm looking forward to the most so far for this new generation. I would add Final Fantasy XV and The Last Guardian to that list as well, but I'm beyond the point of knowing whether those will actually ever see the light of day in my lifetime.

wowwow27

@TenraiSenshi when the ps3 was first released my friend was trying to convince me to buy one for the last guardian.  back then i think the ps3 cost 800 bucks (sarcasm, but not far off),  and i decided to just keep my 360.  I'm still waiting for the last guardian, guess the last one is dead too.

@mr_nee @prats93 won't hold my breath just yet. But yeah I love the Souls series, just this game doesn't seem to add much.. I want to see something NEW!

Super excited to see this game in action. On a side note; I'm curious if they'll put more emphasis on telling the story in this one.

PS4 sucks balls!

haven't made up my mind on which system I'll be buying, but I am excited about this. Really wish it were coming to PC though, but it's not.

@Xmus942 Sony is the reason the Souls series exists, not to mention that Sony Japan helped create the game engines. There's also the fact that the Souls community resides on Playstation, and no one bought the DS games on PC, lol.

@Xmus942 not much on the microsoft front, sony is the man right now.

@prats93 The first part I agree with but the second? Where have you pulled this "fact" from, I can hazard a guess... The DS community is very much alive on pc thank you. Ds2 has been in the top 10 of Steam since release only moving to the top 20 a few weeks ago

It's going to be very foolish if they do not make this game 60fps.  For some reason I heard they are going for 30... wtf.

The emphasis on agility over blocking will bring some fresh air to Souls combat. And challenge. No more playing it safe and sitting back, I hear if you do you get overwhelmed fast
