From Software and SCE Japan Studio have released the official story trailer for Bloodborne. The new video, which offers a deeper look at the rotting and haunted city of Yharnam, is available below.
The new trailer gives a look at and offers some backstory on the game’s main setting of Yharnam. Long ago, the city was overrun by a plague beasts and demons. Now it is a rotting shell of its former self and home to all manners of ghouls, ghosts and monsters. The city is home to some dark secrets, which the Hunter looks to uncover. It seems the denizens of the town have a “thirst for blood,” and it is that consumption of the blood that makes them into demonic creatures. A mysterious character says, “The blood makes us human, makes us more than human, makes us human no more.”
There is also a motif throughout the trailer of a female figure speaking kindly to the Hunter character. But her words seem to belie an almost sinister motive. It does not look like the Hunter will receive much in the way of warm welcomes from Yharnam.
Bloodborne is due out next month on March 24. The game will be available exclusively for PlayStation 4.
