Bloodborne is expected to be a big game as the world that you will explore will be very large.
Bloodborne’s producer, Masaaki Yamagiwa, recently demoed the game to IGN. In the walkthrough video, Yamagiwa describes how large and complex the game world will be.
In a quote found by DualShockers, Yamagiwa said: “The world of Yharnam is very large and complex, with many shortcuts and secret paths.”
If you saw the 20 minute video we posted about Bloodborne the other day, you can see how large the game really is. It’s great to see that the game will also have shortcuts and secret paths for you to discover. This opens doors to sidequests and other things that you might be able to do.
It was also recently discovered that shields will be available for you to use in Bloodborne. From the same IGN walkthrough video, Yamagiwa described how shields work in the game. They don’t work the same way as in the Dark Souls games. He said “always standing back and guarding” will eventually get you killed. Players are encouraged to be more aggressive in order to be successful in this game.
Bloodborne releases exclusively for the PS4 from March 24th, 2015.
