Rumor: Details Leaked for Bloodborne’s Multiplayer and Closed Alpha

As reported by Gamepur on Thursday, September 25, leaks regarding the multiplayer and Closed Alpha of the upcoming Bloodborne have surfaced, revealing that said Closed Alpha has been scheduled to take place a little before the game’s release, as well as what PlayStation 4 players may get to experience during online play.

The leaks were found via a PasteBin link, which has now since been deleted. According to Gamepur, the leaks in question are seemingly from the same source that originally leaked “ Project Beast ”, which was later confirmed as Bloodborne during this year’s E3 event. Also according to Gamepur, the game’s Closed Alpha in Japan begins on Wednesday, October 1.

The details of the leaks have been listed below, courtesy of Gamepur. Please take the following with a grain of salt, as they may not turn out to be true.

Bloodborne has been slated to release in early 2015 ; Sony’s official E3 2014 brochure revealed that the game would release during the first quarter of next year. The game will be launching for PlayStation 4 on Thursday, February 5 in Japan, and on Friday, February 6 in both North America and Europe next year.

The game is also said to be similar to From Software’s acclaimed Souls series. Sony trademarked Bloodborne back in late-April . We’ll bring you more news on Bloodborne should further information reach our ears.

Online Multiplayer:

  • Players will have choice to make early on in the game, their decision will effect multiplayer

  • Decision to infect blood with to different strain of the sickness. There are rewards for choices but also downsides.

  • Miyazaki-san wants players to feel the fear of having a disease that could consume them, and take their life. This is a ‘hardcore’ mode for NG like a ‘permadeath’. Players must to collect blood for their Heart. If they loose Heart strength for too long, the sickness consumes them.

  • Players must collect Blood Vials and Blood Packs to transfuse their heart health at their Shrine.

  • The sickness transforms dead hunters into their worst fear.

  • In NG, you may become a boss later in the game if you collect enough blood to strengthen you heart

  • You can summon friends via PS4 friendslist

  • You can no longer use consumable item for healing if you summon friend for boss battle.

Convenant System:

  • In some covenant, the sickness is very strong and player can choose to ‘consume’ his own heart. This is a permanent choice and binds a character to the covenant permanently. You become beast, and new controls and attacks open up. Dead hunters will bind to the world when they die, their bodies becoming a regular ‘mini beast’ boss enemy within the world like Red Phantom from dark souls.

  • Covenant system is not finalized, but some detail I remember. There will be ‘huge beasts’ in the game. If you defeat them you have a choice to become a host for their strain of the sickness at your Shrine. You must invade other player worlds to collect blood for your beast.

  • In NG, The Beast heart will gets stronger from blood and other players will have to fight much harder to kill it. One beast is a giant spider, another is a giant snake.

Bloodborne Alpha:

  • ALPHA will be a co-op boss battle, and some simple PVP invasion covenant testing.
