AU New Releases: Bloodborne Launching Exclusively For the PS4
From Software’s challenging gothic role-playing game Bloodborne launches exclusively for the PlayStation 4 at Australian retailers this week. The game is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who also led development on Dark Souls.
Unlike Dark Souls, Bloodborne introduces the ability to attack foes from a distance using firearms. The game also features a regain system to encourage players to fight more aggressively. For more details on the new features and more, check out our round-up of everything you need to know about the game.
Prefer your fantasy to be a bit less dark and gothic? Pillars of Eternity generated a lot of support when its Kickstarter campaign, named Project Eternity, opened in 2012. The game amassed a total of $ 4,163,208 in crowdfunding, far beyond its goal of $ 1,100,000. Developer Obsidian Entertainment said it had turned to Kickstarter to generate funds for the project as it was “almost impossible” to secure backing from traditional publishing means.
The studio has worked on several role-playing games in the past including, Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2, and South Park: The Stick of Truth. Pillars of Eternity was meant to be released last year, but Obsidian pushed the game’s release date back in order to iron out bugs. For more on Pillars of Eternity, check out GameSpot’s preview from Kevin VanOrd.
