Games of the Generation

As we approach the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, TechRadar is looking back at the games that made this generation great. This week’s entry? Bloodborne

FromSoftware is perhaps one of the most beloved games studios around. After releasing Demon Souls in 2009, game director Hidetaka Miyazaki earned his place along the greats, with his unique brand of brutally difficult, high-stakes gameplay spawning an entire ‘souls-like’ genre – kept alive by the incredibly popular Dark Souls franchise. But just as you thought the themes and settings of Miyazaki’s games were getting stale, in 2015 we got Bloodborne – a Lovecraftian horror PlayStation exclusive filled with unique beasts and deranged beast hunters.

Bloodborne puts you in the dirty, blood-soaked shoes of The Hunter and tasks you with entering the strange town of Yarnham to hunt down beasts and put a stop to the mysterious plague devastating the town. As you progress through the town, you’ll begin to unravel the mystery of the Healing Church and the conspiracy behind the disease spreading through the population. 

As with all FromSoftware games, the lore of the Bloodborne universe is vast – largely told through cryptic conversations with mysterious NPCs, as well as environmental hints you’ll discover as you explore the world.
