Bloodborne is coming to PC, according to one of the worst rumours of the year thus far. A widely shared Respawn First post cites a “leaker” from a “private group”, whose sources include “the gaming industry” and the “word’s [sic] most active gaming forum that is [ResetEra]”. The report has since been picked up by several other publications, despite being entirely baseless.
We feel that, when stories like this gain traction, it’s important for us to get to the truth. The original poster claims that FromSoftware’s bloodthirsty PlayStation 4 exclusive “could take 10 months to a year to get announced” for PC and that fans shouldn’t be perturbed when other Sony titles making the jump to Steam first. They add: “Do not take this as 100 per cent confirmation.”
Sony has, of course, announced Horizon Zero Dawn for release on PC, with MLB The Show 21 and others likely to follow in the future. However, this rumour has no basis in reality – the source is already terrible, but the content of the “leak” itself is somehow even worse. Bloodborne may one day make it to PC, but this particular story is pure fantasy for now.
With PlayStation Now..
Thanks for reporting on this Push Square and especially you Sammy!
Im tried of pc beggars their are pathetic.
It'd be nice to play these games at higher resolutions and framerates on PC!
It would also be nice if you didn't have to re-buy all of your games on PS5 to play them in higher resolutions and framerates. That's the one thing PC (and Xbox One) always has over PS4: whenever you get new hardware, you get to re-discover all of your old games with upgraded graphics without the agony of re-buying everything!
Years old PS4 exclusive possibly going to PC? Uh oh, cue the flames of war!
@keihtg rebuy? Tf are you on about? You don't have to rebuy your ps4 games on the PS5.
@Nepp67 I'm talking about the PS5 not being 100% backwards compatible, and having to buy "remasters."
@4kgk2 We're begging because we just want the games to be run well little console boy
Ok, but MGS4 on pc when?
I’d be perfectly ok if Bloodborne came to other consoles next gen. Loads of games lose exclusivity after a gen or two when they get ported and it’s a shame that a game as big as Bloodborne, with the whole cult Souls fan base, can’t be played on PC.
If there was a sequel coming , I could see the original going on pc to help increase fan base for sequel.
@Spyroescape That's the biggest disappointment for me this last generation...most games couldn't live up to the promise of 1080p, 60 FPS! I expect this next gen will follow suit, since it seems that no matter how much horsepower you give devs, they're gonna somehow fail to work within their means. One can hope otherwise, tho!
Sources My ASS!
@keihtg You trying to make me laugh or something?
@keihtg From Playstation Blog, "We believe the overwhelming majority of 4000+ games will be playable on the PS5"
@Nepp67 Lol, you shoulda posted that to begin with! I mostly remember reading a few initial reports that said the exact opposite, so that's where I was coming from.
For me, I was definitely hoping I could bring my backlog over to PS5 and ditch my loud-ass PS4, lol.
damn, i am still waiting on release date for horizon on pc i so want to replay it...
@Spyroescape The game runs fine as it is but PC gamers are all about the numbers to the point where they don't even see the game anymore.
I would kill for Bloodborne on PC at a rock solid 60 fps.
@keihtg Ahh understandable then! Well now ya know!
That doesn't sound like a leak, sounds like made up garbage from Resetera.
Hope Sony patch BB to run 60fps on PS5. That's all Bloodborne needs.
@roe it's already in ps now, the last time i checked at least.
@AdamNovice It's kinda true...as a PC gamer, you can get so distracted by stuff like the framerate dropping slightly during one cutscene that you stop playing for half-an-hour while you reconfigure all of your settings, update drivers, and read forums, lol. It's why my PC-only buddy has been 100% console this generation, and why I was like that up until recently (I draw the line at games dipping below 30 FPS...that's something that should be behind us, quite honestly).
@Bamila that's what I meant
A 60fps Bloodborne though.
Lol, source: trust me veo. I like this quote:
PS: If you know some people from foreign countries or from Era do not share this with them. This is only and only for you guys since this is a private group.
@keihtg Considering Sony's developers like to push a console to its limits we will probably never get a 60fps exclusive which I couldn't care less of a sh** about cause 60fps isn't too big of a deal for me. If it's at 30fps and it's stable that's fine, if it's at 60fps that's just a bonus to me.
@AdamNovice The game doesn't run fine actually. It may run fine to you because your used to below 30fps gaming. Its an old a** game anyway so I dunno why all these ps people are crying loool.
Do not want to buy old PS4 games again for my PC. Just let me play the copy I already own on PS5.
@Spyroescape frame pacing. It doesn’t dip below 30. Get your facts straight.
@Spyroescape Correction, I'm used to 30fps gaming, Bloodborne had frame pacing.
Considering the only time you bother to comment on here is to try to wind up PlayStation gamers, I do wonder why you even bother.
I don’t have a gaming pc, but boy what would the mods do with this absolute masterpiece.
Actually it's been clarified that 3500 of the 4000 PS4 games will work on PS5 day one with enhanced visuals and frames. The only ones that 'may' not are the VR titles due to the legacy hardware, namely the PS3 motion controllers.
You seem rather misinformed on the issue.
You lost me at ResetEra
@GADG3Tx87 Nepp67 already schooled me, lol. I've definitely been misinformed, was basing my comment on some old info...
Understandable. To be fair Sony's initial messaging on the situation was far from clear and many have not seen the rectified statement. They really should make more of an effort to widen public knowledge about it because other than people with a heavily invested interest in the PS5 many are in the dark regarding certain info.
A friend of mine even said he'll wait for Ghost of Tsushima remaster before purchasing until I told him it's highly unlikely they'll be one since it's unnecessary.
I’m okay with PS4 games coming to PC after it’s been out for at least a few years. They’ve done made the majority of their sales off the console version, so why not expand to the PC market after a certain window of time?
@Spyroescape You are crying here on PS site so?
Reminds me when people thought that Sony was going to buy a lot of Konami's IPs, with many people on the internet believing it to be true, only for Konami to come in and confirmed it to be not true.
No sympathy for PC only players who go on about specs and stats constantly and forget that they are missing out on numerous excellent games by being elitist and snobby. Bloodborne being a good example.
It may be old but it still thumps many newer games.
@Spyroescape grow up.
@4kgk2 4 people are begging for Cuphead on ps4 in this article in the comments.
I own both consoles.
'PS: If you know some people from foreign countries or from Era do not share this with them. This is only and only for you guys since this is a private group.'
I remember when Horizon Zero Dawn coming to PC was wishful thinking as well.......
Well it can mostly run at 60 on a Pro, though only at 720p.
This is the thing about throwing a single game. Give the owners an inch and they take the mile. This tactic is not Sony 'changing' how we view exclusives, it is them bandwagoning a tactic that MS did and caving to investors for a bit of extra cash.
Nintendo trying to develop for 2 systems led to nothing but splitting resources. In Sony's case they are remastering games for PC when they could be remastering other games for PS4 that never made the jump yet like Little Big Planet or Twisted Metal. There are still a lot of PS3 exclusives that PS4 owners have not played Sony.
I dont get it, Its an old game now, An awesome old game but still. Why would it be so bad to release it on PC and make even more money that can then be spent on...... well more games. Grow up.
@RustyBullet There are still tonnes of PS3 exclusives which are still PS3 exclusive not brought to PS4 yet. Why can PC get this but PS4 not get LBP on native? Explain.
@Sentinator Whats to explain, The PS3 was cell based the PS4 is more x86 based which is what PC's are so easier to port. Or Sony couldent be botherd to port it to the PS4. Still tho if you own a PS4 and still dont have Bloodborne on said system it's probably because the game dosn't apeal to you. PC only guys that don't have a PS4 get to own a great game and provide more revenue for the developer to make more games. Its that simple. You dont have to feel hurt that more people get to play a game that is awesome.
Lol you can just feel the immense rage Sammy has against potentially losing yet another exclusive to another (and arguably far superior) platform, radiating from every letter in this entire post. Bloodborne on PC would be freaking awesome, and a win-win for everyone (software sales makes money, not consoles). The only people this should upset if it ever becomes true are overly sensitive Sony fanboys. A game being made available on another platform & to a wider audience shouldn't suddenly make you all insecure & angry about your original purchase. It should be celebrated.
This is one area where Sony just doesn't seem to get it, where Microsoft very much does. Console sales have terrible margins (negative even early in a gen), the money is made on the software, and largely ignoring the entire PC market does them absolutely no favors in that area AT ALL. It's not like they'd make much more money if a PC gamer bought a PS4 to play a given game then if they'd just gotten it on PC had it been available (bc console margins suck donkey balls), but FAR less PC gamers are willing to buy a whole nother console just to play one, or even a few exclusive titles. Aka, they make less money by ignoring the PC market then by embracing it like MS has (potentially a LOT less even).
reading this I felt your pain. especially at "FromSoftware’s bloodthirsty PlayStation 4 exclusive". don't be butthurt about a 5 years old game making its way to the widest gaming platform. people will really enjoy it at 60fps with far superior graphics and a lot better antialiasing. the funny thing is that it won't be the only exclusive sony is making for PC. it's simple PS4 will be dead by December 2020
@4kgk2 you should buy a dictionary or go study English before you comment
@4kgk2 Not nearly as bad as console fanboys crying because their exclusives aren't exclusive anymore.
