Bloodborne was a 2015 action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware and published by Sony for the PlayStation 4. Bloodborne follows the player's character, a Hunter, through the decrepit Gothic, Victorian-era–inspired city of Yharnam, whose inhabitants are afflicted with a blood-borne disease. Attempting to find the source of the plague, the player's character unravels the city's mysteries while fighting beasts and cosmic beings. Bearing many similarities to the Souls series of games by the same developer and director, Bloodborne was inspired by the literary works of authors H. P. Lovecraft and Bram Stoker and the architectural design of real-world locations in countries such as Romania, the Czech Republic and Scotland. By the end of 2015, the game had sold over two million copies worldwide.
Previous Bloodborne comics from Titan were written by Ales Kot and drawn by returning artist Piotr Kowalski. This is a first for horror comic book writer Cullen Bunn, as he takes on the role.
