Bloodborne: The hit TV series for PS4 and PS5 is in the works


After Sony and HBO are already working together on a TV adaptation of The Last of Us - filming will start in July 2021, by the way - the next thing is apparently a Bloodborne series.

Bloodborne (buy now 20, 90 €) is a Soulslike title developed by From Software that was released exclusively for the PS4 in 2015. Typical for games of this genre, you explore a dark world in Bloodborne, fight against numerous types of opponents and also face powerful boss opponents. The considerable degree of difficulty of the title is also typical. How exactly do you pack this into a series format?

Bloodborne: Remaster for the PS5 may have leaked

According to a retailer, a remastered version of Bloodborne will be released for the PS5. But there are still doubts. var lstExcludedArticleTicker = '1371663,1368301,1368186,1358465'; According to information from That Hashtag Show, an early version of the script already exists. The story is said to be structured similarly to that of films like Dread and The Raid, in which the protagonist has to do a seemingly simple task, but is then confronted with a horde of enemies. The series should have a total of eight episodes and at the end of each one the protagonist should defeat a boss from the game in an action-packed finale. The entire series should be staged very bloody, as you would expect from a Soulslike series.

Currently, Sony is said to be unsatisfied with some parts of the script, which is why it is being revised. The boss fights should remain, however. There doesn't seem to be any information about the cast yet, for the lead role one is looking for someone who has extensive experience with stunt work. It is also unknown whether the new Bloodborne show will become the Dark Souls of the TV series.

Bloodborne fans’ PSX demake is peak retro PlayStation aesthetic

There is no Bloodborne 2 on the horizon, and developer FromSoftware is still working on the mysterious Elden Ring. Fans who want to delve deeper into 2015’s Bloodborne, which is now considered a classic, are finding other projects to pursue — like a PlayStation demake of the game.

Game developer Lilith Walther has been creating Bloodborne PSX in Unreal Engine and sharing the passion project on Twitter for some time now. Fans have watched it evolve from a prototype into a much more sophisticated and polished looking version. The project originally began in 2017 before being shelved; Walther restarted work in January 2021, and has since posted regular updates with fans.

The goal is to create a version of Bloodborne that is in line with the technology and graphics of the original ’90s PlayStation console. Walther posts regular threads showing progress — for instance, here she shows off the PSX version of the game’s Cleric Beast fight.

Other people have contributed to the project, including composer Evelyn Lark and artist Corwyn Prichard, who has worked on textures for levels as well as a model for the Plain Doll character.

Bloodborne fans use Walther’s Twitter threads and the Bloodborne PSX Discord to discuss how things should be interpreted from a high-res version on PlayStation 4 to a much more limited and carefully designed “demake.” Right now, PlayStation-era graphics are currently “in,” and developers challenge themselves to create the aesthetic with projects like Cyberpunk 1997.

“I would say early gen 3D games are finally starting to hit the ‘retro’ aesthetic that pixel art has been enjoying for years and years,” Walther said in a conversation with Polygon over Discord. “I think the rise in popularity of not only BBPSX but many, many indie games that are using a low poly ‘early 3d gen’ art style is proof of that!”

The community around Bloodborne PSX shows that popular games can live on through niche projects and deep discussions, many years after they’ve been released. Bloodborne remains a uniquely stylish and intriguing game, and Bloodborne PSX proves that people still want to revisit the world.

“People have been tagging me with their own early-in-development [PlayStation] demakes saying that I was directly responsible for inspiring them, as well as others saying that they want to get into game development because of BBPSX,” Walther said. “Even the people who say that they look forward to the updates every day makes me so happy. Game development is something that I’m always more than eager to help people understand and maybe get into and seeing BBPSX push that farther than I ever have before fills me with so much joy.”
