Bloodborne arrives exclusively on PS4 this week – watch the launch video

Are you ready to confront the beasts of Yharnam?

The wait is nearly over – Bloodborne arrives in stores this week! Watch our special launch video above, and read on for a special message from game director Hidetaka Miyazaki:

To all Bloodborne fans,

As FromSoftware’s first game for the PlayStation 4, development of Bloodborne was not without its ups and downs. But thanks to the tireless efforts of the development team, and the support of all of the staff at Sony Computer Entertainment, we somehow made it to the finish line.

Bloodborne takes place in an old city called Yharnam, where a sickness called the “scourge of the beast” turns humans into malformed beasts. And it is here that Hunters will engage in deadly blood-drenched combat. I hope you all get to enjoy this dark, terror-filled, horrific experience.

Bloodborne Director, Hidetaka Miyazaki

Bloodborne is out tomorrow (and on Friday in UK/Ireland), on store shelves and via PlayStation Store, exclusively for PlayStation 4. Don’t forget, you can also download the custom Bloodborne audio mode, tuned specifically for the game, to your PlayStation headset through the PlayStation 4 Headset Companion App.

As a special treat just for launch, please enjoy these two music tracks: one from the game, and one from the TV commercial.

First up is “Cleric Beast” from the Bloodborne original soundtrack, composed by Tsukasa Saitoh.

The second music track is the full length song Hunt You Down by The Hit House Featuring Ruby Friedman, featured in the Bloodborne TV commercial.

See you in Yharnam, hunters.

PlayStation blog…. or Bloodborne blog?

Nah, but seriously. It’d be nice to see something else on here. It’s been Bloodborne Bloodborne Bloodborne Bloodborne Bloodborne for a while. I can’t think of any other game that’s been given this much spotlight on the PS blog. Two posts in a row is kind of overkill now.

Whilst I’m sure there are plenty of people excited for Bloodborne, it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. There are plenty of people, myself included, who aren’t really interested in the game. It would be nice to have something else to read about here in the meantime.

I agree, but you have to understand it is the release of a huge game and its an exclusive. They prolly promised from a lot for the exclusivity. Like all the attention ;)

It’s currently the highest rated game of the generation, they are going to gush. 93/100 on meta iirc.

@vavires: I get they want to build hype, but it’s a bit overkill at this point. They didn’t do this for any of the other big PS4 exclusives. They don’t do it for PS3 exclusives. They don’t do it for Vita games.

@ThugETH: Sure, but it’s kind of overkill at this point. Two posts in a row. A bunch of posts over the last week/end. I mean they even had a post talking all about Remote Play for the game… that’s just silly really. I don’t mind them giving the game a push and if people are excited for it, that’s fine. But my problem with this is that the blog is being saturated with posts about Bloodborne and not giving other games any spotlight.

Also.. Lol @ the people complaning about all these Bloodborne posts. It’s a much awaited PS4 exclusive from a highly acclaimed developer.. So of course they get a lot of post. They deserve it.

Gonna pick this up on the weekend. Should be the best PS4 exclusive yet.

Picking up this tomorrow. Any news of the patch that will reduce loading times.


The icon is on my dashboard and it’s almost done downloading.

Will the frame pacing bug be fixed soon? People in the US are already reporting it leads to an uneven feel in the game even when it’s running at 30fps.


@11 I will hope that there will come a patch to fix it, because I am getting the Collectors Edition from my dad Saturday, and I just can’t wait! Add me for online gaming plz


mmmm decided to give this game a miss.

Got the game early at Retail.
4 hours in and loving it!
Except for the load times…But that seems to be getting a patch

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
