Bloodborne EGX Preview - Innergeek

Some have been saying Bloodborne feels more like Demon’s Souls than Dark Souls. Some are wrong. Bloodborne – although it controls similar to both, and is a Sony exclusive like the former – feels like its own beast, stripping away the safety of a shield and, in turn, completely transforming the pace. Even people who played the Souls games as a back-stabbing Dexterity build will initially be themselves blindsided by Bloodborne’s renewed agility.

In the build I played, there were three pre-made classes to choose from – although the final game will likely reward experimentation with various play-styles and weapon loadouts, in true Souls fashion. One class had a giant hammer, the other had dual blades which could be attached into a bladed polearm, and the class I selected had a saw-cleaver. All of the weapons, like the dual blades that could be stuck together, could be transformed into a different weapon, essentially giving each two ranges.

Re: "Some have been saying Bloodborne feels more like Demon’s Souls than Dark Souls. Some are wrong."

To be fair, one of the guys who said that was the game's director. So I mean....

That and most who played it.

Demon's Souls had a different, much more depressing atmosphere than Dark Souls, especially in the Tower of Latria which is said to be the target of Bloodborne's atmosphere. IMO that's a great thing because I loved the Tower of Latria and generally liked Demon's Souls much more than I did Dark Souls even though I enjoyed both immensly.

All in all I'm very happy with all the positive previews for Bloodborne, makes me want to start another Souls-playthrough right now :D

lonelyplayer3581d ago

The tower of latria has one of the best level designs in gaming history, it's amazing.

DarkOcelet3582d ago

Its the spiritual successor of Demon Souls so it has to be similar and thats a good thing .

nucky643581d ago

yea - all miyazaki has done is routinely cite things from demon souls that he wants to bring to bloodborne. he even has the same exact demon souls team working on bloodborne.

StrawberryDiesel4203581d ago

Well that just made my day. Demon's Souls is the best in the franchise by far.

Forn3581d ago

This game is going to consume me, can't wait.

bazinga_913581d ago

Bloodborne gonna rock baby! Goty 2015 material. Expecting 9 and 10s all around .:D

nX3581d ago

After seeing about 2 hours of gameplay and reading many previews I'd actually be shocked if it doesn't receive lots of 10/10s :D
Everything they've shown so far just screams masterpiece.

medman3581d ago

The only thing that could stop the 10's is if the game somehow ends up being ridiculously short on playtime.

Sokol3581d ago

Loved Demons and Dark souls, I see no reason why Bloodborne will be any different,all the previews i have seen and read are very good.

Look forward to the game. :-)

StrawberryDiesel4203581d ago

Demon's Souls is the best RPG ever made in my opinion. Can't wait for Bloodborne!

SimpleSlave10d ago

Not just for you. It WAS the game of that Generation and one of the greatest game ever made.

fr0sty9d ago

I tried so hard to get into it... just not my cup of tea. Maybe I'll try again if they drop a remaster.

Juiceup10d ago

Agreed. Easily one of my favorite games of all time.

jznrpg10d ago

Must be a mistake when you click on it goes back to PS4 everything else is listed for PS5

LordStig10d ago

Framerate drops in a souls game is not a problem. It's a challenge.

Tacoboto9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Base Xbox One version of a soulslike with stick drift and a faulty bumper for the biggest challenge

Abnor_Mal10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

I’ve been playing the old hunters dlc recently, bought it when first released but just had it sitting. Finally got to it and just beat the lady in the clocktower. About to traverse the fishing village, when I finish the dlc I will start playing Forspoken.

Aloymetal10d ago

Yes sir!
I have spent an unhealthy amount of hrs on that game including the dlc, 2k to be more accurate lol. Love that game.

Abnor_Mal10d ago

Oh definitely agree with that.

@Aloymetal that’s insane hours of play, I thought I was doing something with my 334 hours lol

anast10d ago

It's amateur hour for me. I only got about 300. I got some work to do. I'm going to put in a couple right now. I just got re-hyped.
