These bold new images from PS4 exclusive Bloodborne give us a glimpse of the horrors that lie beneath the cities. They depict new foes that lurk in the Chalice Dungeon, a sprawling catacomb that lies beneath the city of Yharnam.
The new Chalice Dungeon feature takes players into the depths of ancient underground ruins located beneath the city of Yharnam. By using holy chalices, players can enter these dungeons and explore the vast structures and multiple levels. However, every time a portal is opened up, the structure of the dungeon itself changes.
These dungeons are filled with traps, nightmarish creatures, and of course rewards for brave and skilled hunters to claim whether they complete them on their own, or with the help of other hunters online.
Chalice Dungeons add a ton of additional content and replay value to the depth and richness of the full game itself, and can even be uploaded for other people to try out. Share your dungeons with your friends, or go online to find new Chalice Dungeons to explore. Even after you master the game, discovering all of the secrets it has to offer, there will be new challenges awaiting you.
Revealed in the new screens are "the protectors" and "the protector ritual masters", two classes of enemy that dwell solely in the Chalice Dungeon. Masaaki Yamagiwa, a producer at PlayStation's Japan studio, describes both classes as "born in the depths of the dungeons and having never seen the light of day."
"These pale-skinned masters of the deep roam the halls, protecting the secrets held within."
Bloodborne is an upcoming video game being developed by From Software and published by Sony Computer Entertainment solely for the PlayStation 4. It is being directed by Demon's Souls and Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki.
The game takes place in the gothic, ruined city of Yharnam which is rumored to house a potent medical remedy. Over the years, many travelers make pilgrimages to the city seeking the remedy to cure their afflictions; the player takes the role as one of these travelers.
Upon arriving in Yharnam, however, it is discovered that the city is plagued with an endemic illness that has malformed most of its denizens into bestial creatures. The player must navigate the streets of Yharnam and overcome its violently deranged inhabitants and horrifying monsters in order to survive.
