If you haven’t played Bloodborne yet, then you need to stop what you’re doing, buy a PlayStation 4, and dive into the nightmarish cityscape. The Dark Souls games might be where From Software cut its teeth, but the PlayStation exclusive is a masterful game highlighting all the wonderfully-addictive qualities in the Souls-like genre while establishing its own atmospheric setting. Hunters with speed and cunning must keep Yharnam from falling to the horrifying beasts that lurk in the dark.
And there’s no better time to play a grim and haunting game like Bloodborne than Halloween. This is why players on the game’s subreddit have come together to devise a community event called Return to Yharnam. Based on suggested ideas and upvotes, the event will run from October 5th to November 5th. Players are encouraged to start a new character, to wear one of the approve costumes, and to swarm the streets of Yharnam.
Bloodborne has a devoted player base; the experience is not one that you’ll forget. Comments on the event page mention never having left the game in the first place as well as logging hundreds of hours in the violent action RPG. So if you’ve played, maybe this will be a time to go back and join the hordes of Hunters wandering the streets. And if you haven’t, maybe this will whet your appetite.
