Riding on the coattails of the “Souls” franchise and developed by a lot of the same people, Bloodborne is a dark action-adventure set in a 19th-century city of Y’harnam. Y’harnam is plagued by a terrible disease which turns its inhabitants into blood-thirsty monsters and it is up to the player to save the day.

Originally set to release in February, it was delayed and its current release date is set for March 24 in the US, March 25 in the EU and March 28 in the UK and Ireland – exclusively on the PS4.

With just a few months until release, a gameplay video showing us an exceptionally bloody fight has been released at The Game Awards ceremony. Apart from the usual monsters baddies and bosses, it also show co-op gameplay and a new weapon that works like a flamethrower.
