We are fast approaching the release date of Bloodborne: The Board Game by CMON, and for those who are looking forward to the release, what can we expect from this highly anticipated title?

"Welcome Home, Good Hunter" // Bloodborne: The Board Game

For those who have invested their time into Bloodborne on PlayStation 4, you will agree that you are simply thrown into a world with little-to-no explanation. You are expected to make your way through the gothic world at your own accord. There is no correct way to play and you develop your own playstyle with your own choice of weapons. The only requirement to progress is to keep pushing forward in the story. So how does this translate into the upcoming board game?

Bloodborne and other titles from FromSoftware, Inc. are known to test your patience. I personally was anxious about having a game like Bloodborne (a literal dying simulator) translate over to the tabletop.

Although the video game sends its players into the chasms of their darkest nightmares, the board game is based solely in the city of Yarnham and the adjacent Cathedral.

What's In The Box? // Bloodborne: The Board Game

The board game itself focusses on a cooperative campaign experience designed for 1-4 players, with the in-depth storytelling present throughout. Whilst obviously playing through the storyline, players are required to enhance their deck, collect new equipment and of course - take down a hefty boss in true Bloodborne-tactical style. All of which are familiar to those who have played the video game.

As this is a game by CMON, we can expect to see some high-quality and detailed miniatures. Including your playable hunters, a hoard of monsters, a reserve of bosses and all the components you need to get started.

The base set includes four campaigns containing decks that outline the rules and storyline of the upcoming dark adventure which you will embark upon and expansions will be available to purchase if you are looking to delve deeper into Yarnham.

As a fan of the franchise, I am excited about this release mostly to experience Bloodborne cooperatively.

Will you be picking up this long-awaited Kickstarter?
