Bloodborne

Bloodborne (Japanese: ブラッドボーン Hepburn: Buraddobōn?) is an action role-playing video game directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, developed by FromSoftware, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Officially announced at Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo 2014 conference, the game was released worldwide for the PlayStation 4 in March 2015.[3][4] Bloodborne follows the player character, the Hunter, through the fictional decrepit Gothic city of Yharnam, whose inhabitants have been afflicted with an abnormal blood-borne disease. Upon mysteriously awakening in Yharnam during the night of "The Hunt", the Hunter seeks out something known only as "Paleblood" for reasons unknown.[5] The Hunter begins to unravel Yharnam's intriguing mysteries while hunting down its many terrifying beasts. Eventually, the Hunter's objective is to locate and terminate the source of the plague, and escape the nightmare to return to the 'real world', known as the "Waking World".

How To Play Bloodborne

Bloodborne is played from a third-person perspective and features action role-playing elements similar to those found in the Souls series of games. Gameplay is particularly similar to director Hidetaka Miyazaki's other games, Demon's Souls and Dark Souls.[6] Players make their way through different locations within the decrepit Gothic world of Yharnam, while battling varied enemies, including bosses,[7] collecting different types of useful items that have many uses, interacting with the strange non-player characters,[8] opening up shortcuts, and continuing through the main story. Combat is fast-paced and requires an offensive approach in order for players to combat dense hordes of enemies. The player character is agile and is able to dodge attacks by strafing around enemies while locked on. The new risk-and-reward style of gameplay is emphasized through Bloodborne‍ '​s Regain system, which allows the player to, within a small window of time, recover portions of lost health by striking an enemy.[9] A New Game Plus mode is also present; after the player has finished the game, a new game will immediately be started. New Game Plus is optional, players retain all their equipment, and the game is harder than the previous play through.[10][11]

Heroes of Bloodborne

The game's first few moments are seen in a first-person view through the eyes of a Hunter; the Hunter sees they're being operated on by an old man. The man explains that he is performing a blood transfusion, and tells the Hunter they've "come to the right place" in seeking Paleblood.[5] He warns the Hunter that he will go on a strange journey that will seem like a bad dream. The Hunter then passes out after seeing several beastly creatures approach them. After the player has created their Hunter, the game is seen in the standard third-person view, and the Hunter awakes on an operating table in a small room. The Hunter then exits the room, discovers they're in Yharnam, more specifically Iosefka's Clinic, observes that the world is full of dangerous monsters and mysteries, and begins their lengthy journey.
