Yesterday Sony Computer Entertainment showcased a nice chunk of gameplay of Bloodborne at Taipei Game Show and finally you can see the full eight minutes of stage demo.
Can you play online coop as shown in the video with people from your friendlist or local coop splitscreen?
I doubt there's gonna be splitscreen, because it would detract from the experience too much. I'm pretty sure they already confirmed that there is drop in drop out co-op that is accessible by friends list friends.
I don't quite get the appeal of this game. I usually jump onboard most PS4 exclusives, but this one's hype has me stumped. I just don't really get what it is, I guess. All I've seen are a couple people having trouble attacking a giant enemy that moves awkwardly. There has been a little bit of other stuff, but nothing interesting by any means. So, am I missing something? Is there some kind of cool customization or weapon building or quest progression or something? Is it free? Someone fill me in so I'm not ignorant, please.
@ inveni0 Bloodborne is a 'Souls' game in essence so if you've played either Demon's Souls, Dark Souls I & II, then you'll know what to expect. But the game does have a more gothic vibe and atmosphere that invokes feelings of dread, in my opinion. Lots of us are really digging the art direction too. It's positively glorious. In this game, there are no shields and gameplay has you using more offensive tactics to progress, unlike the previous games I mentioned. It will have you killing creatures to fill your blood meter. Encounters are intense. There will be customisation, and there will be stat progression like is expected. It will provide countless hours of challenging and rewarding gameplay, discovery of new areas, just like the previous Souls games. You will die a lot, and if you don't enjoy overcoming that, then you probably won't enjoy it. If you're unsure, just look for more gameplay, read developer interviews, look on Reddit threads and NeoGaf, because the info is out there in abundance.
Only those who experienced the suspense and intensity of Souls games can feel how tense every single battle in this game will be. as you can die any moment if you are not on your toes and focused on the enemies and surroundings. Right from the beginning the game creates an atmosphere of dread.
And yet we love it so, intently. Is there something wrong with us? Or have we just been starved for so long for a game that will actually challenge us, skill wise?
I'm trying to convince a friend & Xbox owner to finally get a PS4: Bloodborne! I say, I hope this to be as good as the ur Dark Souls
Bloodborne might be a good game but I notice that player is only fighting one enemy at a time. Maybe that will change.
Yeah because that short video is representative of the entire game.
maybe u r the only one who didnt see that the player fights with more than 1 enemy
Unsure about that? https://www.youtube.com/wat... Just look at 1:10 of that video. I count at least 7 enemies there of varying sizes. This game is going to be HARD!
Looks pretty fantastic. This game is going to rule, to be sure.
"The hunter dressed in white wields in his left hand a sort of long-barreled rifle that we haven’t seen before." The PSX 2014 gameplay video disagrees.
Was that a rifle or a shotgun?
On the white character, a rifle.
Thanks. I've only seen the Shotgun. :)
Most anticipated game for me right now hands-down. I'm going to get so absorbed into this game when it releases. Can't wait.
Sorry media blackout for me from here on. I know the game will be awesome cant wait!!!!
Im so hyped for this game but I have a question. Had anybody noticed in all these gameplay videos you don't have anything to block with? Like a shield? I can roll pretty decently in the past demon and dark souls series but I always built my character into stamina/dexterity built
Yeah there are no shields by design. The developers want players to mix it up and stay on the offensive, which means a heavy reliance on blood and no shields. Instead, the secondary weapons are firearms which aid in stunning the enemy and are just change of pace weapons. I too loved shields, but we will adjust.
Lol yep looks like we got no choice
