Bloodborne is here. Let’s have at it with a full guide and walkthrough.


New to PS Plus this month, Bloodborne is one of the defining games of the PS4 era. It follows in the footsteps of Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, but for this new PS4-exclusive franchise, director Hidetaka Miyazaki has turned it up to 11.

“Oh, so Dark Souls was too easy,” I imagine him chuckling into his morning cup of gamer’s blood, sweat and tears. “Well, how about we just – get rid of shields? Huh?”

As a result, the mean streets of Yharnam present a new kind of challenge, even to veteran Souls fans. I think we’d better tackle this together, don’t you?

General Guides

Even if you already know how to play a Souls game, there are things you should know if you want to make the best of Bloodborne.

Spoiler-free walkthrough

If you just want to know where to go and when in order to have the chance to see and do everything, without all the spoilers and handholding, then what you want is our spoiler-free Bloodborne guide and walkthrough, which contains location names and carefully vague suggestions of what to do in each area to avoid missing important developments.

You should also take a look at this before following our walkthrough if you’re looking to skip some of the optional bosses; it outlines what is and isn’t required to progress.

Don’t read any further if you want to avoid learning the names of bosses!


The world of Bloodborne isn’t strictly linear. You can often make use of hidden shortcuts – sometimes one way! – to circumvent certain obstacles and enemies. Doing so may mean you miss key treasures, though. Our walkthrough tries to get everything, if possible, but feel free to get creative if you spot a new path you’d like to explore.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
