"Project Beast" was unveiled last night as Bloodborne, a new action-RPG in development at Souls studio From Software exclusively for PlayStation 4.
The trailer hinted at a vibe that looks to be right in line with what series fans are into -- for starters, it takes place in a city called Yharnam that's cursed with "a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire," per PlayStation -- and here's more to go on courtesy of Famitsu.
As translated by NeoGAF, the game will have character customization, online elements, melee and long-range weapons (including guns!), and is looking at a spring 2015 release. So far so good. Bloodborne's combat is both action-oriented and strategic, and reportedly "designed to feel like a life or death struggle." That, and again, Hidetaka Miyazaki is back directing. So good.
