Sony have released a video demonstration of Bloodborne with gameplay footage from Gamescom Very Happy 





Need I say anything else?

It is looking mighty fine! The combat seems speedier compared to Dark Souls which is interesting. Also I love the Victorian/Gothic feel to the game.

It's looking good, with this and Witcher 3 out about the same time February 2015 can't come soon enough.

Japanese release date announced at Sony's pre-TGS press conference - February 5th 2015. No word on the western release yet but I can't see it being too far behind.

How long was it between the releases of Demon's/Dark Souls in Japan to the West?

According to wiki (because that's always so reliable Laughing) it took 8 months to come to North America and a further 8 months to hit these shores. That was a different situation though, in that, I don't believe it was initially intended for Demon's to be released outside of the East.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it around May/June on these shores, largely because those February releases are already piling up and I'd have thought From/Sony would like to spread those exclusive releases out.

Yeah I don't think it will be anything like that for Bloodborne, March/April maybe, more in line with Dark Souls.

It seems Sony are sending out Alpha Test Invites to a lucky few. I don't know the criteria but keep an eye on your emails.

I'm guessing if you have played Demon's/Dark Souls on PS3 you have a chance of getting a code.

I got the Alpha Test invite email. You still need to sign up, and if successful will be emailed a code. 

I've applied, but not that interested. I will choose to give my code to TPM (if he doesn't already have one), or any others on here who have a genuine interest in the game. If you all get one, I might as well give it a go myself...

Appreciate that a lot Wolvie  Very Happy. I did get the email and have applied so fingers crossed I do get in.

The EU release date has now been confirmed as February 5th so it's not to far away and it's good to know that we'll not be kept waiting till after our Eastern friends have the game, although it means that that particular month is becoming expensive.

New trailer to celebrate:

February's rammed all of a sudden, Bloodborne and The Witcher 3 look amazing and day one purchases. Then there's Evolve and The Order: 1886, both of which I'm less convinced about but could still be very good.

Looks like some peripheral family members wont be getting presents this Christmas, priorities!

Apparently it is only on at these very limited times:

Wednesday October 1st 19:00~22:00 (CET), 18:00~21:00 (BST)

I didn't receive a code but I've heard from people who did and have been playing the Alpha. They say the game is amazing, all the best things of Demon's/Dark Souls but more dynamic and better looking. Having no shield but including regenerating health ups the risk/reward quota considerably apparently.

Oh wow! Yes please Wolvie bounce cheers 

I didn't receive a code and reading the thoughts of those who were enjoying it on my twitter timeline when the first testing period was on inspired the kind of insane jealousy that I'd forgotten was within in me Evil or Very Mad

I got the Alpha added to my account by calling in a favour at work (chuffed that I am able to do such things!) and gave it a quick go. I was very impressed. The gameplay is nice and quick while still being challenging and the graphics are amazing.

And that's all I can say thanks to the NDA!

Made the most of my 3 hours tonight, thanks again Wolvie Very Happy.

Don't really want to say much just in case of any NDA, although I didn't see any mention of one. I did wonder how I may feel about the faster pace and increased need to be aggressive as that wasn't really my playstyle in the Souls' series. I needn't have worried, felt f'ing awesome. Felt really fresh despite the obvious Souls influence, looked fantastic, atmospheric as fuck and some great level design which seem to hark back to that of Demon's Souls.

Beat the boss and then messed around with a couple of the different pre-set builds, all equally fun and will explore those a little more on Sunday.

The countdown to February 6th can now begin in earnest Very Happy

Bloodborne has been delayed by a few weeks and will now be released in late March - 27th in the UK -  instead of early February. Bit of a bummer but, to be honest, February was too rammed anyway and it will give me more time to enjoy The Witcher 3, so it's not too bad.

I am so on the fence about getting this Sad

It's getting really good reviews and while I didn't finish Dark Souls I really enjoyed what I played. While I can afford it my main detractor at the moment is time. I've got too many other games on the go at the moment and to little time to play them in! The thought of adding another one to the pile is worrying Laughing

I've got £50 of credit with ShopTo from trade-ins, so I'll probably order it from there later in the week.

My copy is on the way Very Happy

As some of you may be aware my broadband has been fucked for the last week and I was getting concerned that I may have to start the game in offline mode, which is far from ideal. Thankfully, I'm back online just in time and I can't freaking wait.

I've also not really had the opportunity to look in-depth into any reviews (the cost of mobile data was crippling me) but I'm glad to see it seems to be highly regarded. That said, I was always going to buy, whatever the reviews said.
