    Hell yeah

  • Kougeru

    Did they use the word exclusive? I wasnt paying deep attention. IIRC it’s being published by Sony tho so I guess it will be

  • solbalmung

    Is it me or does Bloodborne give a nightmare creatures vibe?
    Kinda excited now !

  • z_merquise

    It looked so amazing! I’m really interested to see more of this!

  • rurifan

    Not in love with the cheesy goth visuals, but it does have a Dark Souls vibe so as long as it plays similarly it’ll be great.

    But please, for the love of Nito, target 60fps this time! Still waiting on proper PS4 ports of the old games.

    • Bryce Blalex Douglas

      They said no port for Dark Souls 2 is being discussed right now.

      • rurifan

        Which you know is a lie, of course they are discussing it. The question is when will they release it. I’m guessing a Complete Edition bundle with the DLC.

  • shogunknight

    Project Beast is Bloodborne :)

  • BlueCereal

    Guess the trailer posted comfirmed it’s exclusive.

    • Zackasaur

      Yes, it’s published and co-developed by Sony, just like Demon’s Souls.

      • Hidayat246

        and just like demon soul this will be coming to X1 in future
        just my guess

        • kiri25

          Its as Darth stated Demons never went to xbox b/c sony owns the Demons Soul IP.

          The same is true for this game, Sony owns the IP so its exclusive to Sony. Now if its successful its not to say From might pull another Dark Souls and create a game very similar for multiplat.

  • Solomon_Kano

    MS came through with Scalebound, Sony came through with Bloodborne. I can’t wait to see more of both.

    • sub_o

      To the zombie dog! Eww.

  • Lara Croft

    “Bloodborne is registered trademark of Sony Computer Entertainment”

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    I think I have a reason to buy a PS4 aside from Dream Club.

  • Zero

    Very cool teaser.

  • miyamoto

    Can’t get enough of FromSoftware!!! One of the awesomest developers in the whole wide world! They know what they are doing!

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    One of my favorite games of E3 so far. I hope it can separate itself from the Dark Souls franchise and be its own thing.

    • Zackasaur

      The name suggests that it is. c:

      This should be a great step forward.

  • The Moeshit

    Hm? This CG trailer doesn’t have the “Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki” text. When it was shown in E3 it showed Miyazaki’s name.

    • DarthBrian

      Yeah I found that peculiar as well.

  • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

    Can’t Wait

  • Audie Bakerson

    From has produced some VERY bad titles over the years (Steel Batallion Heavy Armor, Ninja Blade, the Dark Souls PC port), so I’d wait for… well pretty much anything more than a name and developer before getting hyped.

    • DarthBrian

      We have a trailer and it looks awesome.

      • Audie Bakerson

        None of which will be in the actual game.

        • DarthBrian
          • Audie Bakerson

            Still not sure that’s legit and not just another “Demon’s Souls 2” rumor that got lucky. Note how it only ever leaked AFTER Sony trademarked the name and anyone who knew about the game would know its real title.

            • DarthBrian

              The main character looks exactly the same as the trailer we just got.

              The main character’s weapon looks exactly the same as the trailer we just got.

              It’s the same game.

              • Audie Bakerson

                So it does. Guess it was some attempt at viral marketing by Sony then (seriously, who leaks something as a brand new file format like Webm? Let alone of that size. Plus From struggles to make coherent sentences in English, Believe Your Justice, and no one there would leak on an English board.)

                It still doesn’t change how short those are.

                • DarthBrian

                  The leak was from 4chan, that’s why webm’s.

                  • Audie Bakerson

                    Yeah, but even they just got them less than a month before, not even sure there was a non-command line method of making them at that point, this “leak” and Sony has tried this kind of thing (Remember that kid who wanted a PSP and referred to all the accessories by their full name like no human being ever would?)

    • 罪罰

      and none of those were made by Miyazaki.

      • Audie Bakerson

        See above. I just can’t get hyped for a game that isn’t coming for a year and I know barely more than its name and one of the developers.

        • 罪罰

          good for you.

    • The Moeshit

      This one is directed by Miyazaki.

      • Audie Bakerson

        Of the few games he directed, AC4 has lukewarm reception among AC fans. 3/4 is better than most devs get, but forgive me for not buying a game on his name alone.

        • The Moeshit

          This is Miyazaki directing a dark fantasy RPG that is not a (half-assed)PC port.

          Specific enough?

    • MrRobbyM

      To add the the name, Sony is in this as well.

      • Audie Bakerson

        Which is still nothing more than names, a prerendered trailer whoes contents will never appear in game and less than 25 seconds of badly compressed video.

    • Zackasaur

      The devs behind this game have only made good games. No, great ones.

      Don’t pretend that From is only one small staff that work on a single project at once. lol

    • Hidayat246

      oh my another sarcasm comment

      • Audie Bakerson

        Because someone can’t be anything other than mindlessly enthusiastic for something they know nothing about?

  • MrRobbyM

    I attended the conference in the theater and this was one of the few games that was APPLAUDED. Others include the Kingdom Hearts 2.5 remix before the conference began and MGSV.

    • Michael Garling

      Dude, the crowd seemed to go nuts (on the feed) for Grim Fandango HD.

      • MrRobbyM

        Yeah, it got some love on my showing too. Almost every game did. But people really love their Kingdom Hearts and MGS. Uncharted and Batman got lots of applause too.

  • shogunknight

    Gameplay, when do we see gameplay dammit

  • Elvick

    Looks incredible.
