Get a transfusion of From Software's lastest.
From Software's 'Bloodborne' is getting closer by the day, but for those of us who can't wait, the first 18 minutes of the game has been shared online.
Be warned, not only does the footage contain spoilers for the game's beginning, but there are also moments of "what's this" followed by, "I know what to do so I'll do it super fast cause I'm being coached by a dev" moments.
The footage shows the player character becoming transfused via cut scene. What follows is a classic 'Souls' device wherein the player is killed by the first unbeatable enemy and then gets the weapons and power needed to hold their own. Traversal and combat then follow a familiar style, complete with enigmatic npc interactions. A lit lantern marks some progress, while a z targetted backstab does its work. Stamina and health work in the accepted way (but with transfusions), and we even get to see some firearm action. Finally, a big-handed boss (Cleric Beast) ends the preview session.
