    Bloodborne looks fantastic, has rough framerate (Reports from The Showfloor)

    Source

    One of the biggest announcements of SonyĎs E3 2014 Press Conference has to be Bloodborne, From SoftwareĎs PS4 exclusive. While the existence of the project leaked a few days prior to E3, the confirmation and tentative release pinned for Spring 2015 were more than enough to send most Souls fans in ecstasy. Thereís even better news, though, as Sony is showing a 30 minutes long gameplay demo behind closed doors and many lucky attenders already shared their impressions; we have collected some of them below. Credits to Neogaf.

    Ok so I just watched the E3 demo with a buddy and we loved it. Loved the fighting mechanics, weapons, visuals kick ass but the only issue that needs to be addressed are the framerate issues. The game looked to be dropping 70% of the time to about 10-15 fps. I was basically just cringing at that point. The second the demo started fps drop almost immediately and happened frequently through enemy fights and heavily at the boss battles. FromSoftware rep said they did not know about any fps drops which I donít believe, it was incredibly obvious. He said nobody else reported fps drops today.

    We saw this game today and the mood is amazing.
    Talking about the graphics, this game looks absolutely impressive, the frame rate is awful for now, but I have no concerns about this; itís obvious it still needs optimization.
    The character is pretty bad-ass and, a la From Software, you use two weapons with your two hands: a blunderbuss and a kind of weird scythe in the other, that can be used for short and long range. The atmosphere is really intense and the city look impressively detailed!
    I seriously didnít expect it to look so good and it was all in game since the guy was playing in front of us.

    Thatís the boss that was at the end of the demo. Game looked amazing. The performance was rough though, dropping below 20fps even. But thereís plenty of time to clean that up. Iím VERY impressed graphically.
    The shotgun shoots FAST, almost instantly, in contrast to a melee attack that has some start up. The demo guide also mentioned that the shotgun blast has good stun on enemies so itíll definitely be a great option out of tight spots. What impresses me is that thereís a lot of recovery frames on the blast to prevent the player from spamming it. Itís impressive how balanced everything seems to be already and I canít wait to get my hands on it!

    Just watched the demoÖ the visuals and gameplay are stunning. the framerate is a disaster, no exaggeration, down most of the time in the low teens and even was single digits at times. edit if they fix the framerate, and Iím sure they will, this will be easily the best title on ps4 when it releases.

    Well, these impressions are pretty unanimous. It looks like everyone was seriously impressed, with the exception of the rough frame rate. Letís hope that From Software can smooth this before Spring 2015.
    Sounds like this will be a real looker if they can just sort out the framerate without dumbing down the visuals too much. Definitely one to keep an eye on!

    Let's hope they can iron out the framerate. Though hard to tell without knowing how much they have to improve.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    It's nearly a year away. They'll likely get that framerate locked to 30.
    Destiny is going to be EVERYTHING that EA and MS hoped titanfall would be

    Very rough framerate. Looks pretty awesome, though.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.Ē

    I can confirm the rough-framerate, I was at the presentation myself. Nonetheless, I've confirmed with one of the developers they're final target is 1080p/30 FPS. Game is being released on March 31st 2015 with pre-load beginning on March 26th 2015.

    Also here are some extra details from our Bloodborne E3 coverage.

    P.S. My #1 anticipated title for 2015 It looked absolutely phenomenal in person and I am a huge souls fan (platinumed Demon's Souls and Dark Souls)
