From Reddit! I think it's extremely cool and will definitely try to take part. It's crazy that Bloodborne is already 6 years old, time flies.



Hunters!

You know it, I know it, and so do the beasts that are slowly encroaching upon you...it is nearly that time of the year. Return to Yharnam has begun on Bloodborne's 6th anniversary, running from March 24th to April 7th! To account for CoVID's continuous impact across multiple regions, the event is extended once more for all us Hunters who want to spend just a little more time in the beautiful and very peaceful world of Central Yharnam.

Fellow players from both the Bloodborne Reddit and Discord community, as well as other Soulsborne communities shall be joining in on the Hunt. Please take note of the points mentioned below:

  • To get the most out of this event, create a brand new character and play through the game while summoning as many random co-operators and invaders as possible.
  • Assure that your matchmaking region is set to Worldwide.
  • Try to defeat at least two enemies in each area before progressing to the next one!
  • Leave a note in the Hunter's Dream next to the bath messengers with the words "You're in the know, right?" and upvote any messages like these that you find.
  • Finally, and importantly of all, have fun!
To commemorate the greatest game of all time, the Bloodborne Discord will also be hosting a Nitro giveaway! Five lucky winners receive one month of Nitro classic. You can join us over at https://discord.gg/bloodborne as the giveaway will begin shortly. Our Weapon Design Contest is also still going on, so hop on by and check out the contestants or create one yourself!

As always, happy hunting and see you on the streets of Yharnam!

I thought this was something official, it's just a community event by fans.
Wake me up when they release a PC version so I can play it without that headache inducing 30fps with shit frame pacing.

I bought a year of plus recently after not having it for years so I'm down to try this game out online. Bloodborne is one of my favourite games this gen even though I only went through it once a couple years ago.

Well, I'm in. Downloading now.

I'm thinking I'll try a real different build. Any tips on weird, but effective one to try. I haven't played in years.

I wanted to get into this game but it (and Nioh) was too hard for me. Beat Blasphemous though.

let's celebrate with this super cheesy song based on Bloodborne by Austrian Metal band Dragony:

I bought it at release and then one cthulu looking fucker outside a library ruined me. With my confidence shot, the next boss wiped me out. I only went back into it after watching the Playstation Access streams where they carried one presenter through the game over the course of a few streams
Watch the review of his efforts.

I fucking love this game and also platted it.

Do it!!!

The only thing tempting is its difficulty, overall I'm 100% I won't like it.

LISTEN HERE: IM NOT RETURNING TO YHARNAM WITHOUT A 60 FPS PATCH (PS5) OR A PC RELEASE (REMASTER).
Until that happens im leaving my character to slumber near the ocean, near Kos. (he's been there since my last 3rd playthrough in 2018).

One of the best games of all-time, but after 60FPS buttery-smooth Demon's Souls remake, I just can't. Will wait for a patch. Bloodborne deserves better

I said this was very disappointing when I first played it as I just couldn't handle the frame rate plus for some reason I had to change black level on my TV settings only for this game as it was pretty much all black.

Once I persisted with it for an hour or so I was hooked and even though I absolutely love dark souls I, 2 and 3 and sekiro. I think the level design and detail in the art style graphics is amazing.

9.5/10 but a 60fps version has to be a 10/10
