Sony Computer Entertainment just made Bloodborne's patch 1.03 available for download on the PSN, but besides what was listed in the official patch notes, the update also introduces another lovely feature.
I'd like to see one of them dungeon boss arena areas opened up as a endless survival mode
I love those modes. Shame you don't see them much any more. Most fun I have had with a multiplayer game was doing the Shivan Gauntlet (endless survival vs. Increasingly difficult waves of enemies) in Free space 2 at a LAN arcade.
While I don't have a PS4 yet I am waiting for the Witcher 3 to come out and hopefully there will be a bundle that is attractive. Of course the bundle would not only have to have The Witcher 3 but also Bloodborne as well and if possible Dark Souls 2 and/or Dragon Age - Inquisition. Now the problem becomes what to do about some of my PS3 games which I am still having a great time playing. Good grief I still have PS2 games that I would not mind replaying and I do have a BC PS3. The more I read about Bloodborne (I try not to read spoilers) the more this game is becoming a "must have" and the concept of randomly generated dungeons (aka Chalace dungeons) this game has so much re-playability it's almost criminal.
Its the little things. Seems like now is a great time to jump back in.
No, not now. The time to jump back in is 1.04--which, supposedly, is the patch that will improve loading times.
In the patch notes it does mention improving Loading times.
The loading times are apparently cut in less than half confirmed by early users who downloaded this patch.
...how did you come to that conclusion?
Playing right now, the loading times are greatly reduced. It's fantastic.
Nah, it's this patch. Just experienced the quicker loading times myself last night. Huge improvement
Definitely WAY improved load times.
Easily one of the best ways to get the most out of bloodborne. I loved that they did that in old souls games, and do it again. I always thought it was a odd choice to have a blank screen when previous souls games (including demon) used it so well.
Damn after reading the title I thought they may have added an option to turn off that ugly chromatic aberration. It makes the screen blurry and actually makes it look low res. CA also takes resources so shutting that off may give a few FPS more. Just a clean image would make the game look much better.
Oh you mean that effect I can barely see even when I look for it, and don't see at all if I don't look for it? Yeah that would make all the difference.
Well that's much better than a black screen. :)
I'm all for any kind of bloodborne lore :) can't get enough of it!
I suggested this when I first saw the loading screen. Not to anyone. Just in my head. They need to hurry up and get a Photomode before I'm done with the game.
I'd say a photo mode isn't on the cards. Mostly because they don't want you to be able to pause the game and a photo mode is impossible for you to avoid that. Shame though. Could have made some epic photos in this.
They could add a function to let the HUD disappear more easily though (like pressing L3 for example). Right now it's a little inconvenient to make clean/HUD-less screenshots.
Load times are finally patched up.....nice.
I noticed that. It seemed a lot quicker.
It didn't really bothered me originally but I'm definitely appreciating the quicker loading times. Such an amazing experience :)
never had any issues with the game but i like the load screen thing now. This game is so good and challenging. even the easiest enemies can be tough sometimes. I like how they get harder as you get farther into the game.
Did this patch help smooth out the frame pacing / frame rate? That's all I really care about. Loading times didn't even bother me.
Frame pacing is still a serious issue on my end.
Anyone still getting frame stuttering?
I definitely am. Do you have the digital version? I don't know if it has to do with the crappy default hard drive or not.
I haven't played yet since the update, but yea I have the digital version. I also swapped my drive the day I got my PS4, so it's not that.
Does your frame stuttering get worse as time goes on? I swear it wasn't this bad when the game released, but I might of just been caught up in some serious hype and just didn't notice.
thats a very useful way to implement loading screens the more you know.
Off topic but is there a way to do the chalice dungeons in co-op without getting booted after every boss?
Sounds great... I'll have to try it out tonight when I try to kill the moon presence... Freaking boss game me fits last night
