Bloodborne PS4 PlayStation

Modder, streamer, and fellow Aussie battler Lance McDonald has confirmed what we all know in our hearts to be true, even if it doesn't quite take the form we'd like; that somewhere, iconic PS4-exclusive Bloodborne is playable on PC.

McDonald made a discovery that has been sitting out in the open for years. Marcos Domenech, an environment artist at FromSoftware (who worked on Elden Ring and the upcoming Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon), apparently contributed an image to the Bloodborne Fandom Wiki, specifically, the Oil Urn Pot.

Using technical abilities far beyond our own comprehension, McDonald determined that this screenshot was taken on a retail build of the game, not the build used to develop it. He describes this process, stating:

"Most artist[s] used the PC build of Bloodborne for their work, but Marcos' screenshots are taken using the actual full retail version of the game running on Windows, not at early 'project beast' era build (you can tell by the loading icon in the corner)."

You can check the rest of McDonald's workings for yourself in the Tweet above; it's pretty compelling stuff. Famously, McDonald previously managed to get Kojima's unplayable horror experience, P.T., running on an unmodified PS5, and even got Bloodborne running at 60fps on a modded PS4, amongst other various feats of technical mastery.

What do you think of Mcdonald's latest find? Let us know in the comments section below.
