Bloodborne release date confirmed and new trailer debuts

From Software’s dark new action epic arrives on PS4 in early 2015

At E3 this year we were really excited to unveil Bloodborne, the product of a close collaboration between famed Demon’s Souls developer FromSoftware and Sony Computer Entertainment’s very own Japan Studio. Then at Gamescom in Cologne last month we debuted a spectacular gameplay video and gave the public their first chance to go hands-on with the game.

Everyone involved with Bloodborne has been overwhelmed by the public response to the project, but the question we’ve received most of all is, of course, “when will the game be released?”

Today, we’re happy to announce that you’ll be able to experience Bloodborne’s unique blend of gothic horror, terrifying enemy design, fast-paced offensive combat, brutal transforming weapons, RPG progression and unique online features from Friday 6th February 2015, exclusively on PlayStation 4.

To make the wait a little easier to bear, here’s a brand new trailer for the game showcasing some chilling new environments, gruesome enemies, powerful ally NPCs, devastating weapons and even a sneak peak at some of Bloodborne’s online functionality, including cooperative and asynchronous play.

We’ll have more news to share on pre-order items and editions in the future, so stay tuned to PlayStation Blog!

That’s all for now, but see below for some brand new screenshots, offering a closer look at some of the stages, enemies, weapons and NPCs showcased in the trailer.

    Hide It From The Significant Other Edition might just be the best thing I’ve seen all week.

I got an email saying “Your skill and dedication have been recognised; you have been selected to join the exclusive Bloodborne™ Alpha Test!”

Why did I not get a code?


    Patience, young one. Read carefully this email, and you’ll notice that there is no warranty you’ll be selected. Once the lucky gamers have been selected, they will receive a voucher code in the following weeks.


    Did you read any more of the email? You had to click a link and enter a few other details and you MAY then receive a code.

Great news but will there be no CE for Europe? 🙁

    Fred Dutton 18 September, 2014 @ 10:27 am    

    We’ll have news on our CE very soon. We’re just finalising details.


    @Fred: Do you also have news on that pricing FAQ you promised months ago?

    I hope it’s as good value as the Black phantom edition of Demon’s souls. The US collectors edition is just a steel case, an art book and a digital download of a soundtrack for $20 more…hmm

    StevenJamesHyde 18 September, 2014 @ 12:39 pm    

    An exact copy of the US version would do me… contains a steelbook, doesn’t take up too much room on the shelf and doesn’t cost the earth are my three basic requirements


    Fred Dutton, a Swedish site is listing both a limited and a collector’s edition of the game.
    Will there be three different editions (normal included)?


Is February the new November, this means that Bloodborne, The Order and Witcher 3 are practically coming out on top of each other.

Is there any possibility of a console bundle or even a limited edition themed PS4 for Bloodborne?

brightjensen 18 September, 2014 @ 12:19 pm   14

This does mean that it will be available for online purchase that day, right? And not after the weekly update rolls out?

The gameplay video had very little of the actual gameplay. Still the game the looks interesting and type that I would enjoy playing. Need more of such games on PS4.
