No gameplay was shown; it's only CGI right now.

First post updated with the video.

Heh, thanks for the heads up. Some details from the director:
Quote:
Bloodborne takes place in an ancient, forgotten city called Yharnam, known for an old medical remedy. Over the years, many hopeless and afflicted people have made long pilgrimages to Yharnam in search of help. As the main character, you are one of these travelers. However, you find that Yharnam is also cursed with a horrible endemic illness. You must navigate the perilous streets of this city, fighting off nightmarish creatures, malformed beasts and deranged mobs stricken with this horrific illness. Face your fears as you discover the secrets and mysteries of this dark and horrific world where danger, death and madness lurk around every corner.

In Bloodborne, the combat is based on intense life-threatening battles. One of the ways we are bringing that sense of danger to life is by keeping the deep strategic elements from Demon’s Souls, while also transitioning from the passive and block-and-attack style of Demon’s Souls to a quicker, more offensive and active combat style with close-range weapons and guns.

From the beautiful and melancholic architecture to the debris lining the street, Bloodborne will deliver an extremely rich and detailed world, all thanks to the power of the PlayStation 4 system. In addition, the PS4 system has allowed us to have an expanded draw distance, so we can show more of the world at any one time. New lighting effects allow us to add more atmosphere and tension to the game, making the horrifyingly detailed beasts and giant boss enemies you’ll be facing even more frightening.

I hope to be able to share more about our online features later this year, but I can say that we are developing new kinds of online experiences that allow users to share their adventures. We also look forward to giving fans new ways of playing and sharing thanks via the PS4 system’s Share capabilities.

I remember people trying to say Dark Souls was a horror game.

THIS looks like a horror version of Dark Souls.

Looks damn cool, my cousin said to me earlier that it reminds him of a game and he's correct... Nightmare Creatures.

Can't wait for this. All the comments I read indicated it was like Demon Souls but a bit faster paced.

Watched that video last night and one for Lords of the Fallen. Slightly more excited for the latter simply because of the fantasy setting, but both look good. Damn near **** my pants when the main guy in Bloodborne was climbing the ladder and that boss starting howling. Should be some good frights!

TGS 2014 trailer is looking great. Multiplayer action fighting the demonic uglies is shown:




.... and here's 30 minutes of gameplay at the show. That boss at the end looks insane:

I only got about 10 minutes of gameplay in yesterday (they have these small windows to play and I had to go). Next window is Friday and I should get more time.

The atmosphere is great, lots of fog and very nice architecture. Creepy characters, etc. Nothing different from the videos I've watched. One thing I thought was really cool is the people talk to you, well yell at you.

It feels just like a Dark Souls/Demons Souls games but without a shield.
Image quality looks like it could use some AA or something, some shimmering as well. The framerate is on the low side as well but there is a lot going on at some parts from what I can tell.

I only had a chance to try one character of three so far.

No, not even close to Platinum on any of them. I completed all three only on NG, not NG+. I never finished the DLC on Dark Souls either, Manus always kicks my arse. I haven't tried the DLC on Dark Souls 2 yet.

I don't remember signing up but glad to get a taste.

I have read the third character is quicker, I tried the first (same guy in the trailers with the adjustable blade thing). 2nd has a hammer or something like that and the third I can't really tell from the screen.

It sucks you can't take videos or screens directly from the PS4 but I see plenty of people are using capture devices and have made youtube videos.

I need to give it more time but it certainly feels like a souls game. Has messages and item retrievals just the same. Same hopping mechanics as well as far as I can tell.

Art style though is a bit different as you can see, very gothic. I can't wait to see some other areas of the game.

The enemies yelling at me to leave really adds a lot to the atmosphere.

Yeah the atmosphere seems very dark, horror and gothic.

Guess it will be rated E for everyone....

New Bloodborne Weapon and Hunter Emerge

+ Posted by Masaaki Yamagiwa on Nov 20, 2014 // Producer, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio


Hello, PlayStation fans. I am excited to be able to share some brand new details for Bloodborne, our PS4-exclusive collaboration between Sony Japan Studio and FromSoftware. We’ll have much more to share in a few weeks at PlayStation Experience, but in the meantime here’s a sneak peek at some of the beautiful and nightmarish stages, enemies, and weapons you’ll get to see in the game this March, straight from the dark and twisted imagination of the masterful team at From Software.
We revealed a number of new areas of the game back at TGS, including the forbidden forest and an old, abandoned part of Yharnam back at TGS. You may also remember the Hemwick graveyard we first revealed at Gamescom, located on the outskirts of Yharnam. Despite the warm colored sky and beautiful clouds, this graveyard is home to some very twisted residents, like the deformed gravekeeper hags with their horrifying shrieks and long reach attacks.

When you make your way through the depths of the Hemwick graveyard, you’ll come upon an old rickety manor inhabited by a powerful eyeball-collecting old witch, among other things. You may want to bring a fellow player or two along when you’re ready to meet her face to face.
Also at TGS, we already revealed Gascoigne, a stylishly dressed priest who also wields a giant axe and does double duty as a Hunter in Yharnam, as well as a mysterious hunter with twin blades and a cape of bird feathers.
Now I would like to introduce Gyula, an old veteran hunter who is said to possess amazing skill. No one has seen him in many years, since he ventured into the old part of Yharnam, deserted and burned to the ground after the plague of the beast took its toll there long ago. You just may run into Gyula when you venture into the old part of the city.

Another place you’ll travel to in your quest to find the truth in Bloodborne is the Cainhurst castle. Seemingly abandoned and frozen over, the noble family that once lived there disappeared without a trace. Its grand stature is visible from afar even through the thick fog of the lake, but getting there won’t be easy. What happened to the family that ruled this castle for many generations? What secrets, and what dangers, await you there?
Moving away from a fantasy medieval setting into a slightly more modern gothic and fearful setting has allowed the team at FromSoftware to bring a whole new vision to life on PS4, not only in terms of stage design and the kinds of enemies you’ll face, but also the kinds of weapons you’ll have at your disposal to deal with these nightmarish creatures. From shotguns, transforming saw blades, and axes, to nimble twin blades and even a steel sword that becomes the hilt of a massive block hammer, there’s a wide selection to find and choose from.

Each weapon offers players a unique play style and strategy to leverage Bloodborne’s more pro-active combat style, light/heavy and short/long range combo system, and Regain System for earning back health during intense combat. Here’s one more weapon you’ll be able to wield: the transforming cane. In its standard form, it’s a melee weapon for short range attacks. Like many of the other weapons in Bloodborne, however, this weapon can also transform into a deadly heavy or long range weapon as well, making it a devastating bladed whip.

Last but not least, I have one more exclusive screenshot to share that’s a teaser for things to come. Deep under the city of Yharnam lies an expansive network of multi-leveled ruins, seemingly much older than Yharnam itself and crafted by something other than human hands.
What’s more, these ruins appear differently to each hunter brave enough to enter. We’re all very excited to talk more what that means at PlayStation Experience on December 6th and 7th. We hope you can join us for a live presentation at the keynote as well as our in-depth panel presentation at the show in just a few weeks.
