It shouldn't come as any surprise that the new game from the people behind Dark Souls is a little bit tough, and Bloodborne certainly looks like its set to continue that legacy.
The developers have just revealed that the title will feature a New Game Plus mode which ups the difficulty even more, and they've also admitted that even they are having trouble finishing it. I'll say that again - the developers of Bloodborne can't beat the game. It's that hard! For many of you, that makes it sound like an even more harrowing affair but I know that there are some people who hear that and can't wait for the challenge of inching their way through a deep dark campaign full of death.
I'm just not wired that way but I vaguely understand the appeal of such a challenge. From Software has made it pretty clear in the past that they're not interested in fans of casual gameplay, which makes Bloodborne a game with a kind of niche appeal. I'm not sure it's going to be the kind of blockbuster success which PlayStation might want, but its sure to satisfy its fans.
Bloodborne is coming to PS4 on the 24th of March 2014.
