You’ve Been Warned: Bloodborne TCG Hits Shelves November 11th
One year after Sony and Firmware released the acclaimed game, Bloodborne and sent millions of fans into a frenzy, CMON Games is here to bring it to your table top in this somewhat co-op style card game.
Bloodborne: The Card game is the brain child of game designer, Eric M Lang and it based off a video game lauded for it’s brutal difficulty, smooth gameplay and amazing visuals. This game puts players in an interesting position where they need to work together. Locked in the Chalice Dungeons, each round grotesque, deadly monsters will try to brutalize the group and it’s up to each player to help the party survive.
Alliances made are temporary, survival is your only friend
After the party slays a monster, glory points are divided amongst the group. Points, trophies and rewards are passed out for doing more damage and that’s where the teamplay gets interesting. Here’s how CMON games puts it,
” several Hunters will enter the Chalice Dungeon, but only one will be able to escape the victor….Bloodborne: The Card Game is a challenging, tactical game. You’ll need to be able to read your opponents and make split second decisions if you want to earn the most glory in combat. Only the brave will have a chance to escape!”
You and your frenemiesi won’t have to go it alone. Along the way, powerful weapons and equipment are picked up to aid in your quest. Players can fight until they drop, but the longer they go, the likelier they are to die. Death ain’t cool. Players can opt out of fighting to bank their blood and save it permanently but in doing so, lose points. No pain, no gain. Lang has this to say about his inspiration for the game.
“My goal with Bloodborne was to channel the intensity and frustration of the video game into a contest between players. Lots of death.”
So basically, you can now choke out your friends instead of your PS4 controller. If you’re on the fence about this game but are interested, here’s a video posted by CMON Games with some cheery ass dude giving a tutorial.
