Gather around, Sony fans. We have two new exciting details for all of you. Firstly, graphics-wise, we may just have had a glimpse of what games could look like on the PlayStation 5 (PS5) platform. The other new detail is that the PS5 could launch alongside the Bloodborne 2.
The Stunning Visuals
The PS5 is expected to be this monster device that will take the gaming experience to a new height. With that, tech enthusiasts are wondering what kind of experience it will offer, like its game graphics and other things.
According to a report, during the Inter BEE (International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition) 2018 event in Tokyo, visitors got to see something rather tantalizing. The event is basically like CES (Consumer Electronics Show) but focuses more on professional equipment used in the video production industry.
On the event, the ultra-high-end CLEDIS (Crystal LED Display System) was featured. It’s a massive 440-inch screen with a near-180 degree viewing angle capable of 8K video output at 120FPS.
There, a 12-second stunning Grand Turismo 8K/120FPS footage was featured on the massive screen. This is the clip that was shown.
The report notes that watching this YouTube video compared to watching it on the CLEDIS offers two different experiences. Only watching it at the CLEDIS will you get to see the stunning visuals.
But What Does This Video Got To Do With The PS5?
Well, Gran Turismo creator and Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi made an interesting comment last year. During an interview, the CEO said that the assets that are being created for GT Sport are over-specced even for the PS4 Pro and thinks that it won’t be a problem to run it at 8K.
“It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today. I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.”
Bloodborne 2 Coming In 2020?
It’s been 3 years since FromSoftware released the gothic, Victorian era-inspired action role-playing game Bloodborne, and fans have been asking for a sequel for it.
Back in 2016, FromSoftware President Hidetaka Miyazaki told GGN Gamer that they had no plans at the moment for any sequels, spin-offs or tie-ins for Dark Souls and Bloodborne. However, he did say that he was open to the possibility of doing sequels.
Fast forward to the present, the company released Déraciné last month, which is a VR game. What’s interesting about this game is that it’s filled with Easter eggs referencing Bloodborne.
Check out this video by VaatiVidya (who by the way currently has 1.2m subscribers) discussing the Easter eggs.
Thanks to this, this could be FromSoftware hinting that a prequel/sequel to the current Bloodborne game may be coming. Furthermore, it is speculated that the PS5 could launch alongside Bloodborne 2. And given that the PS5 is estimated to be released in 2020, that may be the year that we will see the Bloodborne 2.
How amazing do you think the PS5’s visuals will be? Also, do you think Déraciné is a sign from FromSoftware hinting that it Bloodborne 2 is coming? Tell us in the comment section below.
