You're already dead

While it may feel like it’s only just been announced, Bloodborne’s release is edging ever closer. The hotly anticipated collaboration between From Software and Japan Studio is due out in February, and in order to ensure that the title deploys in the best state possible, Sony has been sending out beta invites to a select few Dark Souls fans.

The test is scheduled to run between very specific slots – the first starting later today – but many people have already started to download the sampler onto their system. While it can’t be played yet, you can idle at the taster’s menu – and soak up its harrowing string soundtrack. Has this got you in the mood for the full game?
