Bloodborne release date confirmed

UPDATE: Watch 30 minutes of gameplay and a new trailer.

UPDATE 18/09/2014 6.30pm The entirety of Bloodborne's Tokyo Games Show demo has been revealed via Open World Games.

It's the same content as the E3 demo, only now we get to see the entire thing. The player dies a fair few times, so you might want to skip around a bit, but the advantage of this is we get to see them experiment with different equipment sets as they traverse the rotten alleys of Yharnam.
