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.

No Caption Provided

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.

I laughed when I saw the title - then I saw the pic. 'Designed by Eric M Lang' Yeah, that's an insta-purchase. He's designed tons of great games. Some of my favs are Dice Masters and Arcadia Quest. I'm actually excited for this now.

@lonesamurai1: Tell me what is the best combo in Wii U when it comes to controllers?

This is just my guess;

1. wii u pro controller

2. wii pro controller

3. wii u remote plus & nunchuck

I'm getting wii U and wii games can be played via wii u, so that's my 2 cents.

If I'm missing something, fill in the gaps.

Thanks in advance :)

@lonesamurai1: I wonder if you can still beg for console titles.

Why don't you start a pc petition while you're at it xDDDDD


I bet world is against you all the time. Sony & Nintendo are evil companies.

God should smite them in the ass, right???

"Please release this game for the personalized computing platform" xDDDDD

You From Software have betrayed us pc gamers, for not letting us have this. xDDDD

From Software = Sony more or less

So you pc beggars are nothing but Souls-posers.

I'm sorry, did I interrupt something??

Please sign this petition, so we pc gamers can have this for our personalized computing platform xDDDDDDDDDD

Now, go to mods and start bitching xDDDDD

@lonesamurai1: Whenever there's a Sony thread, you and your pencil-neck come here to cry.

If it makes you feel any better, sign those pathetic pc petitions.

I got gaming rig, PS1-PS4 and I'm gonna get Wii U next week, so it's gaming heaven for me.

Unlike you, who fap in front of obese Valve demi-god xDDDD

I'm glad that consoles get under your skin.

Nothing more pathetic than grown man crying in bitterness.

Grow up and grow a pair!!!

@lonesamurai1: Of course graphics-wise pc owns consoles 100-0.

Everyone knows that. What's with the console hoarding??

1 isn't enough per system?

Aahh, I'm done with arguing. Makes 38 yrs old look like an ass.

But hey, I'm an ass so what's to lose, right?

@lonesamurai1: Considering your post history it's easy to say you are pc only gamer.

I'm done with people like you, adios.

Hm. I'm intrigued. Doubt I'll actually check it out -- I don't have anyone to play tabletop games with -- but I'd definitely like to see it in action.

@c_rakestraw: Then look for someone who will be interested in this form of entertainment. He/she doesn't have to be experienced player. Opened mind is the most important.
