  • News Bloodborne Art Book Will Keep You Awake at Night

    Hunter's dream

    Bloodborne has one of the most consistently grotesque gothic art styles that can be found on the PlayStation 4, but if you want to explore the warped imaginations of the From Software design team that brought it all to life, then this official art book may be for you. It's currently available for pre-order on

  • Game of the Year #1 - Bloodborne (PS4)

    Blood on the moon

    Bloodborne reeks of brutal brilliance. From Software's violent eviscerate-'em-up pegs you as a personality-less predator, as you stomp the Gothic cobbles of Yharnam in search of monstrous prey to mutilate. A spiritual successor to the Souls series, Hidetaka Miyazaki's vulgar PlayStation 4 exclusive adopts a more aggressive angle...

  • News This Bloodborne Statue Is Devilishly Detailed

    Bloody expensive, though

    As the old saying goes, the devil is in the detail, and this is certainly true of Bloodborne's latest piece of merchandise. Two slightly different 32cm statues are available to pre-order in Japan from Gecco, but they each cost a whopping $300 or so. One model is tinted with a splash of blood, while the other appears to be a...

    Pay the blood price

    Every once in a while, some incredibly cool gaming merchandise grabs our attention. Whether it's a PlayStation 4 decal or a hefty strategy guide, additional bits and pieces related to your favourite games must make up a decent little profit for the industry as a whole - and we're sure that's also the case with this great looking...

  • News Sony Hasn't Quite Grasped This Flash Sale Thing in Europe

    Bloodborne's price plunges for a few days

    Not only is the weather bad and the fast food worse here in the UK, but we also have to sit and watch idly as our American friends indulge in some outrageous PlayStation Network Flash Sales from time to time. The good news is that SCEE is starting to learn about the benefits of last-minute discounts; the bad...

  • News This Guy Is Better at Bloodborne Than You Are

    A good hunt

    Bloodborne, blimey – remember that? It was the PlayStation 4 flavour of the month before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out and everyone started playing that instead. Fortunately, streamer extraordinaire Craddoc hasn't forgotten about From Software's excellent exclusive – and has opted to play through the entire game without levelling...

  • News Bloodborne Patch 1.04 Is Available on PS4 Now

    Reeks of balance tweaks

    Bloodborne's brand new patch is not quite as exciting as its forthcoming expansion pack, but lovers of the good blood will still be excited to learn that it's available now. Weighing in at approximately 300MB – the update stacks, so you'll be sitting through a good 2.8GB of data if you're working with a fresh install –...

  • News This Was Supposed to Be Your Very First Look at Bloodborne

    Beastly stuff

    Sony's making announcements later than ever, and Bloodborne is one example of that. The game was first revealed at E3 2014, and launched less than a year later. However, the platform holder had originally planned to reveal it earlier, under the name Project Beast. Unfortunately for the firm, this codename event

  • News Bloodborne Will Be Purified with Patch 1.04 Next Week

    Reeks of updates

    Praise the sun: there's a new Bloodborne expansion in production. As good as this news undeniably is, though, it's still some way away. Fortunately, you won't have to wait quite as long for the title's next patch, as it's scheduled to release on 25th May. Game producer Masaaki Yamagiwa made the announcement on Twitter

  • News Shuhei Yoshida Confirms Bloodborne Expansion DLC Is in the Works

    Praise the moon

    Bloodborne is a good game. A really, really good game, as we're sure that you've heard from the constant coverage that we gave the masterful hit a couple of months ago. While the release has a breadth of meaningful content to explore, even with massive areas you may miss during your first playthrough, many a Hunter have wondered...

  • News Sony: Bloodborne's Stellar PS4 Sales Took Us by Surprise

    "We were quite ambitious, but that proved conservative"

    Bloodborne is undeniably one of the best games of the year so far – after all, it even took this Souls sceptic by surprise. But while its commercial success appears to have tapered off a little over the past few weeks, Sony has still been a little shocked by the title's commercial prowess...

  • News Someone Beat Bloodborne in Around 40 Minutes

    Respect

    Bloodborne takes at least 30 hours to complete, but if you're not a DualShock 4 sensei, you could end up exploring Yharnam for upwards of 65 hours. The fact that one person has beaten it in around 40 minutes is particularly impressive, then. Disclaimers: this person is a dirty cheat, using exploits to level up their character and skip most...

  • News Do You Want to Make Bloodborne Really Easy?

    Unlock infinite Blood Echoes with item duplication exploit

    Bloodborne's a great game, but it's not exactly the most accessible experience ever. While most titles go out of their way to include options for less experienced players, From Software's latest foray punishes at every given opportunity. In fact, the only way to make the release easier on...

In it, the platform holder runs a quick competition, where there's a bunch of swag up for grabs. "It's something I will remember forever – it's amazing," said the winner. Calm down, dude – it's a...

    Yarns from Yharnam

    For the few of you that aren't fed up of us bleating on about Bloodborne yet, we've got one last piece of weekend reading lined up.

    Get a head start in From Software's stunning PS4 exclusive

  • News PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Is Selling Out in Some Tokyo Stores

    Fast mover

    Sony's exceptional PlayStation 4 lineup in Japan is now wrapping up, but it sounds like Bloodborne's sending it out with a bang.

Things start...

  • Guide How to Kill Vicar Amelia in Bloodborne on PS4

    Biblical beat down

    More tea, Vicar Amelia? Bloodborne's long haired she-devil requires a similar strategy to the Cleric Beast to defeat, and is perhaps one of the easier enemies in the game thus far. Many of her attacks are doled out from the front, so our top tip is to get in amongst her straggly mane and give her a good swipe on the bottom...
