First footage escapes E3 closed-doors presentation.

Bloodborne

49 seconds of off-screen Bloodborne gameplay has surfaced from a closed-doors presentation at E3 in Los Angeles.

The Sony Japan From Software-developed action RPG is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2015. If you missed what it’s all about, catch up here. And watch the trailer, too.

Watch the footage below. Or here, if webm is your fancy.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    I need this in my life. I just hope Sony shows more at Gamescom and TGS to make the PS4 more worthwhile.

    If not, I’ll have to buy it just for this game anyway because I’m a whore like that.

    • Budgiecat

      PS4 has GG Xrd Sign at 60fps…worth it

      • Six

        I’ve read that the PS3 version is 60fps as well.

        • bloodiOS

          More like targeting 60fps.

    • Elvick

      Still got Guerilla’s game. Not sure if they’ll show it at Gamescom or not, but hopefully. I want to see it.. if rumors are true… ROBO-DINOSAURS

      • Six

        They are a European dev, so it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch.

        Hopefully the rumored details are true. A big RPG with a female lead would be a nice change of pace from Killzone.

  • Raiyu

    ah, framerate drops

    Yep, this is a From Software game. Can’t wait.

      ah, framerate drops

      Yep, this is a game in development. Can’t wait.

      • Nesther

        From is known to have unstable framerates in pretty much every one of their games. No need to get defensive, it’s just how things are.

        I’m hyped as fuck.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Their Gundam UC game wasn’t notorious for frame rate drops, so that leads me to believe they are capable of making games without this issue. I wasn’t exactly being defensive though. I was just basically pointing out that it’s way too soon to tell if it’s going to have framerate issues since this is a test build.

          • Budgiecat

            What about Ninja Blade? (never played it)

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              No idea. I never played it either :p

            • Zancrow

              What about METAL WOLF?

              • http://shinsua.tumblr.com/ Shinsua

                We have to wait until he’s actually sworn into office.

      • Raiyu

        Why are you defensive? It was a joke.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Like I told Bloodios. The only Souls game to not have frame rate issues is Dark Souls 2 on PC…and guess which game in the serie is the least liked? Coincidence? I think not. (Dark Souls was a fluke BTW!)

        • Nesther

          Correlation does not imply causation.

          • MrFinalgamer

            All Souls games are loved, and have frame rate issues. Dark Souls 2 doesn’t, and it isn’t liked as much.

            ‘Tis was a joke…LAUGH!

  • PrinceHeir

    Can’t wait for more gameplay videos at a more stable frame rate on TGS2014!

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      That will give them enough time to prepare a better demo, so we’ll have a better understanding of the game by then. Crying “framerate drops” this early is jumping the gun though.

      • PrinceHeir

        Huh? When did i cry about frame rates O__O

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Not you. I was speaking in general X3

  • Zackasaur

    Hnnnnnng.

  • adhesive

    Hopefully there’s a bit of locale diversity. I didn’t care for the schizophrenic lands of DaS or DaS2, but I’d like to explore more than a single huge town.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      I think it could work with one central locale. I would love to explore a huge gothic Victorian-England city just as I would love to explore Gotham City in Arkham Knight. I’m just way too hyped for this game!!

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    This game is going to shine on the PS4

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    It’s the little details in these next-gen games that really blow me way. Like the way this character’s cloak bounced when he was climbing that latter, or the way Geralt’s horse swayed when it walked in the Witcher 3. So pumped for this game!!

    • Budgiecat

      Now we just need an open world Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure game based on Arcs III, IV and V

  • bloodiOS

    *Ahem* Allow me…
    OH MY GOD, HEAVY FRAME RATE DIPS FOR A GAME THAT’S TARGETING 30FPS ON THE PS4?! IF ONLY THIS WAS A PC EXCLUSIVE INSTEAD, IT WOULD’VE RUN SO MUCH SMOOTHER WITH BETTER ANTI-ALIASING TOO!

    Bullshit aside, I kinda like what I see there, would’ve loved it more if they had showed a direct-feed footage instead.

    • Budgiecat

      Didn’t mind all that. Was more worried about the clipping and mediocre enemy hit reaction animation

    • xkumo

      How is 15 fps acceptable on a game targeting 30 fps?

      • Elvick

        How is bitching about early, offscreen gameplay footage acceptable when the game doesn’t release tomorrow?

        The game has a lot of development time left. No reason to whine about it now

    • Elvick

      8MILLIONK 6000000 FPS

  • MrFinalgamer

    Is there a reason why the player just didn’t lock on? The combat seems to revolve around the use of the lock on, like in Demon’s/Dark Souls. Other than that, I’m loving where this game is going. Still need to play the Dark Souls games, but if Bloodborne is like Demon’s Souls, than I can’t wait to play this!

    • bloodiOS

      Official gameplay footage of DS2 didn’t seem to have that many occasions of locking on either. Might be some kind of agendas?

    • Protagonist

      It is like demon souls. Idk why they didn’t just call it demon souls 2, because it looks like the same exact game. O.o

      • bloodiOS

        Because no demon’s souls, no sorcery, and no shield.

        • Protagonist

          At 0:45 when he killed the enemy, he gained its soul. Also in the leaked clips, you walk through a gate of souls as well. I think other than that, the rest they switched those with guns right? I’m good with that.

          • bloodiOS

            Those ain’t souls… they’re life essences ;)

            • Protagonist

              Really? Ha, they made it in the same similar fashion and everything, but I think I’ll like this more than the souls series, cause I heard this game is more about offensive.

              • bloodiOS

                Offense is the best defense… especially when you don’t have shields.

  • bloodiOS

    I would love someone with similar characteristics to the Maiden in Black to assist me in this game, and not someone like Emerald Herald…

    • MrFinalgamer

      You just want a hot, immortal, blind chick that you can waifu, don’t you??? >_>

      • bloodiOS

        Okay… what’s your impression on Emerald Herald?

        • MrFinalgamer

          Had to google her, and one of the first images was NSFW…she’s making want to play Dark Souls 2. XD

        • Ghost Doge

          She wants you to fuck up everyone so she can then lock you up into a small tomb and rule the land with an iron fist and magnificent cleavage.

    • The Moeshit

      Maiden in Black was moe.

  • Learii

    WHERE DEMON SOULS 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I tho this was Demon souls 2 at first

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      It’s the spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, so it might as well be Demon’s Souls 2.

  • Yaro

    Looks pretty much like souls with a graphical update, complete with framerate dips. That actually makes me feel reassured its from software and I will enjoy it.

    Gotta say though, why do they always have a terrible player showing their games? Im starting to feel its intentional.

  • PhoenixAutomatic~♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪~

    Oh boy. When the game goes gold, I’ll probably die holding the box with extreme happiness.
