Bloodborne is an action role-playing video game directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, developed by FromSoftware, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Officially announced at Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo 2014 conference, the game was released worldwide for the PlayStation 4 in March 2015.
Bloodborne follows the player character, the Hunter, through the fictional decrepit Gothic city of Yharnam, whose inhabitants have been afflicted with an abnormal blood-borne disease. Upon mysteriously awakening in Yharnam during the night of "The Hunt", the Hunter seeks out something known only as "Paleblood" for reasons unknown. The Hunter begins to unravel Yharnam's intriguing mysteries while hunting down its many terrifying beasts. Eventually, the Hunter's objective is to locate and terminate the source of the plague, and escape the nightmare to return to the 'real world', known as the "Waking World".
Power of the Verse
Bloodborne, for the most part, is something of a mixed bag. For the first half, it isn't particularly powerful, capping out at around Building level with your standard affair of powers and abilities. However, by the time the first Great One is encountered, the game's power rises considerably, thanks to feats such as Rom keeping the descending moon at bay, the creation and dissolution of a moon by the Orphan of Kos in the Hunter's Nightmare, the Moon Presence's creation of the Hunter's Dream and the Hunter's tool "A Call Beyond".
In terms of abilities, characters are in possession of Elemental Manipulation (Of the classical four elements, but mostly limited to fire and lightning), Blood Manipulation, Flight and Levitation, Immortality, Poison Manipulation, minor forms of Healing and Regeneration, Magic, Summoning, Shapeshifting, Mind Manipulation (In the form of Lovecraftian insanity inducement and "knowledge eating") and Reality Warping.
