Bloodborne looks like it will be one for the crowd that enjoyed the Souls games, and the footage of the gameplay trailer from Gamescom really does give that feeling. In the demo our hero wanders around Yharnam, the cursed city setting of the game, where various terrors confront him in battle. There’s what appears to be a giant hunchback who is knocking very hard on a door, but that pales in comparison to the weird demon thing that appears after the five minute mark.
The footage shows what a dark and gloomy place Yharnam is, but even with the lack of a large colour palette Bloodborne is looking very good indeed. The city’s architecture really gives the game a foreboding look, and the enemy designs do manage to give off some dread. I can imagine when facing a few of those in the game that you may consider retreating as an option. We won’t really know how good of a job From Software has done until the release in 2015 though.
