While a lot of fun will undoubtedly be had playing the single-player mode of Bloodborne, chances are players will spend most of their time online slaying monsters with their friends. Presented here is Bloodborne‘s extensive list of online co-op features, in-game options and full controls.
Snatched from the game’s Japanese Alpha manual by the guys at dualshockers, co-op mode presents players with complex gameplay and a staggering amount of options to choose from. Keeping in mind that Bloodborne is very similar to Dark Souls 2, an thus shares many of its features, what you came here for is as follows:
- Players can stagger enemies by hitting them with correct timing while they’re attacking, or from the rear.
- Communication with other players is done via a gesture menu.
- Four items are available to players during the alpha test: a “Bell of Dream Summoning,” a “Small Bell of Resonating” a “Blank Ammunition of Farewell” and “Memoir“
- By using the Bell of Dream Summoning and Small Bell of Resonating you can play cooperatively with up to three players. The one summoning will be the host, while the others will be guests.
- You start co-op gameplay as a host by using the Bell of Dream Summoning from your inventory menu. An effect will appear at your character’s feet.
- When a player responding to the call is found the bell starts resonating and co-op gameplay will begin
- You indicate that you wish to take part in co-op as a guest by using the Small Bell of Resonating in your inventory menu. An effect will appear at your character’s feet.
- The bell will start to resonate as soon as a host is found, and you’ll be transferred to his world after a short while.
- The effect at the player’s feet will appear only when standing still. All co-op requests can be canceled by using the appropriate item again.
- Co-op gameplay ends (and all players will return to their own world) if any of the following conditions is met: The area boss is defeated, the host or the guest dies or connection to the host is lost.
- The host can also shoot the Blank Ammunition of Farewell to send a guest back to his own world.
- You can use a memoir by combining words and sentences, and place it in the ground. Messages will appear for other players to read.
- You can check the history of the memoirs you’ve left up to any point.
- You can also check the log of all the memoirs you’ve read up to any point and their evaluation.
- By pressing circle (X in the western version) you can read memoirs on the ground close to you.
- You can rate the memoirs you read good or bad by pressing left or right on the D-pad while reading them.
- Other players that are playing in the same location can appear as ghosts.
- Graves will appear where another player has died. By pressing circle (or X in the western version) you can watch a replay of their death.

Do You Already Hate The Sonic Movie?
The new Sonic movie trailer has everyone horrified and confused. Are you?
To the say the first official trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog film is a head-scratcher would the understatement of a lifetime. It is WACK!
We get a look at Sonic rendered in real life, as well as Jim Carrey’s Doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik. If the tagline “Every hero has a genesis” is anything to go by, the movie will be an origin story for the blue hedgehog that was an integral part of our 90s gaming experience but struggles in today’s video game market.
To be honest, he looks downright creepy, which probably wouldn’t have been the case if the designers went for a cuter, more compact aesthetic like in the original 2D Sonic games.
Instead, we get scruffy, frizzy-looking creature “thing” that could easily be mistaken for an extremely lean man in a full-body costume, a man who likely skipped leg day one too many times.
Something along the line of Detective Pikachu would have definitely be more palatable, don’t you think?
If you hate Sonic’s look, enough to even be reluctant to watch the movie, you’re not alone. Reactions to the trailer have been hilarious , and the film’s official Twitter account has been swamped with thousands of responses.
So, are you happy with the direction Sega and Paramount took with the live-action Sonic movie? Let us know in the comments below.
