All Articles: Bloodborne
Udon Entertainment has announced that the bone-chilling and blood-curdling monsters of Bloodborne will get their chance to shine in Bloodborne Official Artworks, an artbook scheduled to be released in May 2017.
Bloodborne Official Artworks will be released as an oversized softcover book, and the game’s gothic inspirations will spread out over 256 pages of “creature designs, location illustrations, character concepts, and weapons, as well as an item and Trophy glossary… and more!” This behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the cursed city of Yharnam will also include material from Bloodborne’s expansion, The Old Hunters.
Bloodborne was developed by From Software and originally released in March 2015. Bloodborne Official Artworks will be available at “finer comic book stores, book retailers, and various online retailers” for $44.99.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) held their annual Games Awards ceremony last night, and Bethesda’s Fallout 4 looted the trophy for “Best Game.” Surprisingly, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Fallout 4’s main rival throughout the 2015/2016 awards season, came away empty-handed.
The same doesn’t need to be said for Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Her Story, and Rocket League, each of which won three awards last night.
Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’s accolades all revolved around its excellent use of sound as the post-apocalyptic title won for “Audio Achievement,” “Music,” and “Best Performance” (which went to Merle Dandridge). Rocket League’s universal appeal informed its three award including “Family Game,” “Multiplayer,” and “Sport.” Finally, Her Story’s unique storytelling structure lead to wins in the “Best Debut,” “Game Innovation,” and “Mobile & Handheld” categories.
Other winners during last night’s ceremony include Ori and the Blind Forest, Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, Until Dawn, Prison Architect, and Life Is Strange.
Congratulations to all the winners, which you can find after the break. (more…)
The conventional wisdom will tell you that 2015 was a down year for games and that all the good stuff got pushed back to 2016. But how can you trust the conventional wisdom when last year featured a ridiculously entertaining string of good games starring kid squids, gothic hunters, glitchy sci-fi heroes, and the lone survivor of a nuclear war. And all that’s before you dip into the millions of user-created levels from Super Mario Maker.
Yup, we think 2015 was a pretty great year for games, especially the ones that took home some hardware during our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)
Beyond: Two Souls, Bloodborne: The Old Hunters, Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3, more added to PS Store
Sony is in a giving mood for this week’s PlayStation Store update. The consolemaker has heavily discounted dozens of games for Black Friday weekend (though they never use the words “Black Friday Sale”), as well as launching two new PS4 titles.
Beyond: Two Souls is a PS4 remake of Quantic Dream’s supernatural adventure story starring Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe. In addition to improved visuals, Quantic Dream has added increased difficulty, improved controls, and a special “chronological order” mode to the game.
Also available this week is The Old Hunters, the massive new expansion to From Software’s Bloodborne. Players will descend into “Byrgenwerth’s deepest, darkest secrets” as they “explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to hunt.” Sounds like a good time will be had by all.
Finally this week, Telltale Games has reached the halfway point with Minecraft: Story Mode. Episode 3 will be known as The Last Place You Look, and it’s a rather fitting title as Jesse are on the lookout for Soren, the final member of the Order of the Stone. I wonder if he’s hiding out to browse the PlayStation Store sale in peace.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. A complete list of this week’s discounts and new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
