Bloodborne is an action role-playing game from the Japanese developer FromSoftware, the developers behind the popular Dark Souls series. Development began in 2012 under the working title Project Beast and although it is not developed as a sequel to the Souls games, it bears a number of similarities from the previous games.

Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and the Dracula novels, the decision to create a new intellectual property (IP) was due to director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s desire to create something different and Sony’s desire for an exclusive IP on the PlayStation 4.

Bloodborne follows the protagonist of your own creation through the Gothic city of Yharnam, whose inhabitants are plagued with an endemic illness that has transformed most of its citizens into bestial creatures. After mysteriously awakening on the night of “The Hunt”, the Hunters is tasked with the job of hunting down the inflicted and finding something known as the Paleblood. As the Hunter progresses, they find themselves unraveling the mysteries and facing off against a group that wish to birth a god.
