The official Gamescom 2014 gameplay demo for Bloodborne, the latest game from the makers of Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls II, has found its way online. It runs about six minutes in length.
While fans of the games will notice that Bloodborne is set in an entirely different Victorian era-inspired nightmare of a location than the more fantastical (but still nightmarish) locations found in the Souls games, they will also notice just how similar the actual gameplay looks to those previous games.
You can find out more about the game and check out the gameplay demo as well as a trailer below.
Introducing Bloodborne, the latest Action RPG from renowned Japanese developer FromSoftware, exclusively for the PlayStation®4 system.

Starting with the very first enemy encounter from the demo, watch the truly perilous combat against human hordes and large scale enemies, as well as battles with malformed beasts with an ally NPC at your side. Make your way through the plague-ridden streets of Yharnam and even visit a dimly-lit house interior and use your trusty torch to light the way, before finally facing the the nightmarish boss from the end of the demo. What dark secrets will you find hidden within?
This video features combat showing both the saw cleaver and heavy axe, both of which transform and can be wielded in short and long forms, as well as the brand new Regain combat system that rewards players for countering and striking back.
