Today Sony Computer Entertainment revealed new information on Bloodborne, and one of the descriptions seem to indicate the presence of a randomly generated or somehow changing dungeon feature.
Ok, that would be very cool Bloodborne is going to be an amazing game that's for sure this and Uncharted 4 alone will do wonders in 2015
Heck yeah, I strongly believe that randomly generated dungeons would work strongly in the game's favor due to its action game play style. Hopefully the loot variety will match the environment possibilities.
The binding of Isaac is a good case of a RGD game that happens to extremely addictive.
I hope they add random boss/monster, item stats, item drops
Scares me a little...lol If things are random, then I will struggle to battle through. The SOULS series was all about learning with every step and repeating it until you get it right. Sounds scary when you have no clue what could be around the corner... This game is going to be so awesome!
I believe that it will only be the dungeons that have this feature, if it does have it, which would be the best way to add replayability to an already awesome game. This game in my opinion, will most likely be a game on the year in many people's minds.
This doesn't sound like random dungeons to me at all. This sounds more like the "tendency" system from Demon's Souls to me. There were light and dark self and world tendencies (the latter based on a community algorithm that was always a mystery), and if they got light or dark enough, certain areas would open up. Maybe they brought back the individual tendency system and based map presentation upon that. I hope so...the tendency system was a big part of what made Demon's Souls my favorite game in the Souls series. It was irresponsible of the author to jump to such an extreme conclusion as "randomly generated dungeons" from that quote.
If you read the article, the author also thinks about world tendency from Demon's Souls. Here his quote: "but the description definitely sounds like a sort of randomly or procedurally generated dungeon or they could be somehow changing akin to what we saw in Demon’s Souls."
@Inception: Right, but he still led with "randomly generated" in his headline. There's no reason to even think that's what the Sony guy meant. It's click bait. They aren't randomly generated. Mark it down. I am right.
Err...the headline clearly read "could have randomly generated" which means the author not 100% sure and he explained it in the article that it could be like Demon's Souls. And how do you so sure it's not randomly generated? Do you have official info about that?
Best news for this day imo.
Too bad it is just a clickbaity shot on the moon.
@palitera We can dream if we want to.
I wouldn't consider this clickbait, if anything the author of the article is just stating his opinion on what it could be, it certainly sounds like randomly generated dungeons. AWESOMENESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
^ Or, you know, like it already happens since Demon's Souls, with the tendencies/covenants, making the world look and behave differently... changing "appearance depending on the person that sees them". In other words, something cool, that I REALLY LOVE about the original Souls, but much more probably NOTHING new at all. But, as we know, nothing new at all is very very newsworthy for some "journalists".
Just keeps getting better with every bit of new info!
What are you talking about? Halo rereremastered edition is the beast! Jk
Nice! This will add more challenge for the players and more playing time too.
That new character with a gatling gun is gonna be the next bad ass character since Yurt and Scirvir in Demon's Souls, and Lautrec in Dark Souls. The new sword-whip weapon looks like a Soul Calibur (Ivy) weapon. Me Likey!!!
I don't think randomly generated dungeons is what that means, however, I know Bloodborne is going to have a rich world full of interesting things to see and secrets to discover ala Dark Souls (1). I have a feeling I'll be putting in a few hundred hours into it at least like I did with Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Can't wait!
Fromsoft like ND Excel at what thy do and I'm confident the final product will be a masterpiece. My buddy who's a Souls addict like me was just in the beta and he said the game was like Demon Souls on steroids but different at the same time and looks like it'll be better Thn any Souls game he's played. Might be hyperbole but coming from him thts still gd news. He said graphics were crisp and movement smooth. I can't @ucking wait.
Read randomly generated and jumped off the hype train
The quote from the Sony guy actually doesn't say anything about randomly generated dungeons. He simply says they could appear differently to different players, but my guess is this is more opening access to secret areas up based on the player's past behavior. The whole "random" thing is just the blogger being stupid.
This is gonna be cool...my main concern is pvp atm though...i hope its similar to the souls series
Lack of tendency was the first issue I had with Dark Souls. Over a year spent trying to figure it out and they remove it for the next two games. :( come back
