This jaw-dropping PS4 exclusive from the makers of Dark Souls sends players into a world of extreme danger, nightmarish creatures, and unforgettable challenges. As players wander through a gothic city devastated by plague and madness, they use a host of transforming weapons and guns to defend themselves against monsters and mobs of crazed citizens.
The game’s intense third-person combat makes players rely on guns that stun enemies, saw cleavers that take advantage of openings in their defenses, massive hammers, and other baroque weaponry. Players can regain a portion of lost health if they swiftly attack enemies after being damaged, so quick thinking and risk taking are a must.
Players explore the dark, gothic city of Yharnam, delving into its forgotten crypts and peering up at the sinister peaks of its stone structures. When players have exhausted the regular challenges of the city, they can head down into the procedurally generated Chalice Dungeons, which offer a shifting landscape of unpredictable enemies, traps, and rewards.
As in the Dark Souls series, players can catch glimpses of other travelers’ deaths as they progress through the same areas, and can even be invaded by hostile gamers as they progress through their own world.
