  • News Bloodborne Is the Best Souls Game, and Even Souls Creator Knows It

    Miyazaki knows best

    Every entry in the Souls series, spanning from 2009's Demon's Souls right up until its latest releases, is a bonafide classic. We'll never forget our first experience with Dark Souls, but when it comes down to which is the very best, we think the answer is quite clear. The PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne takes top spot, and as...

    Return to Yharnam

    If you're a fan of popular service-based titles such as Overwatch, For Honor, and Rainbow Six: Siege, you probably know that this time of year means there's a Halloween themed event just around the corner.

  • News There's a Bloodborne Comic and It Looks Freakin' Rad

    Orphan of Kot

    Comics aren’t your host’s favourite form of media, but it’d take a cold heart not to warm to this Bloodborne strip. It’s part of a new Titan series named The Death of Sleep, which is being helmed by franchise fans Ales Kot and Piotr Kowalski. They’re probably big names in the comic book world – we wouldn’t know. One...

  • News Missing Bloodborne Monster Finally Hunted Down

    Only took three years

    Bloodborne’s most mysterious monster, believed by many to have been cut from the game entirely, has been discovered almost three years after the critically acclaimed PlayStation 4 exclusive’s release. The Flaming Undead Giant was first sighted at PlayStation Experience all the way back in 2014, but many assumed he had been...

  • 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 You Can Glitch the Camera in Bloodborne to Make it Look like Diablo

    Hunting for glitches

    How people actually discover glitches like this, we're not entirely sure, but Bloodborne's latest is certainly one of the strangest we've seen in some time. YouTube user PaiNz V has found a way to get the camera angle stuck into a birds eye view, like you'd usually find in titles such as Diablo or Hotline Miami. The result is...

  • News Bloodborne's PS4 Loading Times Just Got Quicker and Prettier

    Patch plugs problems

    That big Bloodborne logo that used to appear during the PlayStation 4 exclusive's loading screens may be burned into your retinas by now, but it's finally gone. Sony has released a brand new patch for its critically acclaimed outing, which not only cuts down loading times by around 30 per cent, but also replaces them with...

  • News Hunting for Witches! Crazy Person Completes Bloodborne with Guitar

    Hunter's axe

    Bloodborne took this author 40 hours to beat with a DualShock 4; one crazy Twitch streamer has completed it in nine hours with a Guitar Hero controller. You're free to feel a mixture of admiration and jealousy – personally, we feel sick to the very pits of our stomachs. You can view the full archived playthrough through here if...

  • News Even Xbox's Boss Is Impressed by Bloodborne's PS4 Sales

    Hunter's dream

    In a move that's been no way orchestrated by Microsoft's marketing team, Phil 'One of Us' Spencer has congratulated Sony on the success of Bloodborne, which has already surpassed one million sales globally. To be fair to the Xbox chief, he did at least acknowledge that people would raise eyebrows at the message – so there's that...

  • News Bloodborne Patch Will Bust Up Bad Load Times Soon

    Various other fixes pledged

    If there's one problem that we'd point at Bloodborne – aside from those dreaded Defiled Chalice dungeons – it's the long load times. Sure, you can pretty much run from one end of the world to the other without ever seeing a stumbling block – grotesque enemies aside – but having to travel to and from the Hunter's...

  • News Bloodborne Sales Are Off to a Bloody Good Start

    Blood echoes retrieved

    Can you smell the iron? According to Sony, PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne had sold over one million copies by the 5th April, which means that the brilliantly gothic adventure hit that sales milestone after just over a week on the market. To put this feat into perspective, it took Dark Souls II, a multiplatform title,...

  • Soapbox Why You Shouldn't Be Afraid to Play Bloodborne on PS4

    Sammy Barker says From Software's latest isn't as impenetrable as you think

    I beat Bloodborne last night. I'm tempted to talk up my gaming prowess in this opening paragraph, but I'd be undermining the entire point of this editorial if I did – there's way too much e-peen measuring going on elsewhere around the web with regards to From Software's...
