Looks Like PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne is Sufficiently Challenging
Even in demo form, it seems to be giving people issues.
There have been a lot of fears that From Software would try to dumb down the formula in Bloodborne, its upcoming title that continues in the tradition of the Souls games, to try and appeal to a larger audience (especially since now the game is an exclusive to the PlayStation 4); well, if these stats about the demo are any indication, then I think we can all safely put that fear to rest, as it appears this game will still be balls tough.
According to DualShockers, BloodBorne’s demo presented people with a very unique challenge- only 20 out of 3,500 people who tried it at PAX Prime could clear it, while only 40 people out of 1,250 who tried it at TGS could clear it.
That’s… well, that shows us two things. a) Any fears about this game being dumbed down are unfounded, and b) seriously, it looks like the Japanese, who have often been accused of going soft and casual in recent years, can still kick our asses when it comes down to it.
