Bloodborne fans will have a new way to play when it releases as a card game based on the action-RPG's Chalice Dungeons and monsters.

Board and card game designer Eric Lang revealed the Bloodborne card game on Twitter with the image above. He says it's "simple but highly deep and interactive." It's officially licensed and will be published by CoolMiniOrNot Games; Lang noted there won't be any miniature figures, but there will be "sweet components."

"Bloodborne is a card game based on the Chalice Dungeon runs, where players compete to kill monsters and take their blood," Lang explained. "But don't die!"

The designer described the gameplay as "risk management with a bit of group think, inventory management/upgrades, and tactical play in an intense 30 minute card game." He mentioned that he has played Bloodborne on PS4, saying he "sucked horribly at it."

"My goal with Bloodborne was to channel the intensity and frustration of the video game into a contest between players," Lang said. "Lots of death."

Lang has worked on several projects including Star Wars: The Card Game and XCOM: The Board Game.

There's currently no set release date for the card game, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
