But those PC gamers were heard – millions and millions of voices crying out for a Bloodborne PC version – and the developer behind this now legendary videogame has finally answered the bell.
You’re finally going to have the opportunity to play Bloodborne on the PC, and it’s all thanks to the PC gaming community being just as vocal as humanly possible about making it happen in the first place. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about Bloodborne for PC, when it’s going to be made available, and why it’s so important that this game in specific came to the world of PC gaming, you’re going to want to check out everything in this quick guide.
Let’s dive right in!
A little bit of inside information about Bloodborne
There is a reason that so many gamers were so anxiously awaiting the delivery of this amazing game on the PC platform – it’s been in development since early 2012 (then called Project Beast), and teaser trailers have been released every year since then leading up to its eventual March release date.
Almost all of the teaser trailers that were released were from PC development kits that showed off the capabilities of this next generation action RPG title, which is why so many people were pumped up for a Bloodborne PC release.
In fact, the developers behind this title were pretty sneaky about walking that thin line between confirming and denying whether or not a PC version was ever going to be released, but the overwhelming majority of the videogame community (including those on the development side of things at other title houses) believed that it was a foregone conclusion that Bloodborne would be making its way to this platform.
However, right around the middle of 2014, people really started to wonder whether or not there would ever be a Bloodborne PC release. The developer started to say how difficult it was to port the version over from the next generation consoles, mentioning that it was going to take a lot longer than they had expected or anticipated – and that they certainly weren’t going to build this game from the ground up just for the PC community.
This had people in an uproar, and understandably so.
After all, this was supposed to be the spiritual successor to the Dark Souls series of games, a series of games that millions and millions of video gamers had already fallen in love with for years and years. This was going to be one of the most anticipated releases to hit the PC market.
That’s when the developers behind Bloodborne pulled the rug out from underneath PC gamers.
That’s when things got really ugly.
Bloodborne PC release gets delayed indefinitely
Right around the middle of 2014, the developers were starting to get pretty antsy about whether or not they were going to be able to deliver Bloodborne on PC, and there were rumblings throughout the industry that the release for PC gamers was going to be indefinitely suspended.
Gaming forums all over the Internet absolutely exploded in rage.
People were going absolutely crazy, talking about how they weren’t going to buy a Bloodborne game on anything other than the PC platform, and that they warrant even going to think about supporting this developer with anymore next generation console titles if they weren’t going to bring them over to the side of the “fence”.
The developers behind this title clearly heard this rage, felt the anger, and started to really appreciate the heat on social media, which is why they redoubled their efforts to make sure that a Bloodborne PC release was going to be a very real thing.
Will Bloodborne be on PC?
And that brings us to our current point in time.
Bloodborne has finally been released for PC gamers, and it’s absolutely everything that gamers had hoped it would be – and then some!
Sure, some of the same graphical frame rate issues that plagued next generation console players showed up here as well, but thanks in large part to the modding community, and the speed of development on the PC side of things – these issues have been resolved without any real issue.
On top of that, the active modding community made sure to make a considerable amount of “DLC” available – 100% free of charge – to anyone and everyone that wanted to grab the files online. This means that the Bloodborne for PC version of the game has a lot more extra content than the next generation console versions do, completely transforming the way people play and experience this game in general.
If you’ve been looking to dive headfirst into the world of Bloodborne – one of the most notoriously difficult games you’re ever going to come across, but in a fun, exciting and tremendously challenging way – or you’re going to want to grab it on PC as opposed to any of the other console versions.
The extra add on content that developers make available for this game makes it a no-brainer purchase, as you’ll be able to completely and totally customize your experience in game then you ever would have been able to with just a console.
Combine that with the fact that your graphics card in a PC gaming box can far exceed the capabilities of the even the most impressive next generation console, and you’re talking about something really special here.
All things considered, it’s great news that Bloodborne for PC has finally become a reality.
People were (understandably so) quite nervous about it ever coming to fruition – but now that fear has been replaced with relation and people everywhere get the opportunity to play one of the most special PC games on the planet.
We no longer have to ask “will Bloodborne be on PC” – we get to play it right now!
