E3 2014: Bloodborne Is Project Beast

Bloodborne is the new title from Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls. Watch the debut trailer for the game below.

Footage for the game was leaked online recently under the moniker ‘Project Beast.’ While that footage was low-resolution, it showed gameplay distinctly reminiscent of the Souls games, as well as the brand ‘From Software.’ Certainly it didn’t appear to be a fake, and it wasn’t.

(Check out the gameplay footage here. Screenshots here.)

Monday evening at E3, the game was confirmed as the next project by From Software. Once again, the developer is working with Sony's Japan Studio, like they did for the 2009 release of Demon’s Souls, a PS3 exclusive.

Bloodborne will be exclusive to the PS4. It’s coming in 2015, which suddenly feels like a long ways off.

Bloodborne appears to take place in a Gothic 18th century, tricorne hats and all. Zombies, perhaps werewolves, and beastly canines haunt crumbling city streets.

In other words, we have an entirely new and different setting, which is excellent. And while the trailer is cinematic and gives us nothing in the way of gameplay, if anything it looks even darker and more horrifying than its predecessors.

We don’t have much to go on, of course. A trailer and the knowledge that this is the next game from the creators of some of the best video games ever made.

There is a cool—somewhat gross—weapon that transforms between a saw and a blade. The setting is far more urban than the Souls games. Beyond that, it certainly seems to have a Gothic flavor—possibly werewolves, but the concept of “bloodborne, or blood-born” could imply vampires as well.

There’s definitely a Solomon Kane vibe here, which would be fantastic. My guess would be less in the way of heavy armor, and perhaps even shields (alas!) but more in the way of unique, non-traditional weapons and faster gameplay. Of course, I’m merely speculating.

Whatever the case, I can’t wait to find out more. Here’s the debut trailer:

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
