Can you feel that? That ominous, bleak feeling when you just know that around the next corner, you're probably going to get ripped to shreds by hordes of really creepy creatures with rusty weapons? No? Must just be us, then.

Or perhaps you just need to watch the first 18 minutes of PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne to really nail down that harrowing anticipation. Courtesy of IGN, we get to watch as one intrepid player makes their way through the game's incredibly atmospheric opening, and it's every bit as gripping as you'd expect.

We won't spoil any more, so go ahead and absorb the gameplay that we've embedded before letting us know if you're now afraid of the dark in the comments section below.
