Based on the PlayStation 4 “Bloodborne” by Sony Interactive Entertainment and FromSoftware, “Bloodborne: The Board Game” has already surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $200,000 in less than 20 minutes after going live with 18,030 pledges. The board game is set to release in 2020 which co-aligns with Bloodborne 2 if the rumors are true.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign has already US$ 1,627,502 pledged out of its US$ 200,000 goal with 19 days left in the tank. The pledged amount for the game is rising at an incredible pace as it climbs the popularity charts.
There are a number of reasons for this tremendous donation growth in a short amount of time. One is, of course, the popularity behind the PS4 FromSoftware Bloodborne Game. Second, are the pledge rewards game creators, Shinall and Lang, are offering.
Apparently, if you pledge $100 or more, you’ll get the “Blood Moon Pledge”. It will come with Bloodborne: The Board Game, The Exclusive Kirkhammer Hunter, and all applicable Stretch Goals.
There was Blood Moon Early Bird Pledge for those who pledge $90 or more, which rewarded them with Bloodborne: The Board Game, The Exclusive Kirkhammer Hunter and All Applicable Stretch Goals. The Blood Moon Early Bird Pledge Reward has now expired at the time of writing.
So now the best way to get the bonuses is the Blood Moon Pledge. Bloodborne: The Board Game has a release date set for May 2020, which also aligns with the rumored sequel, Bloodborne 2.
The game is being developed by Michael Shinall and Eric M. Lang. The official description of the Bloodborne: The Board Game Kickstarter describes it as “a dark and challenging action game”. The game will feature “1 to 4 Hunters” who will have to “explore the town of Yharnam and fight their way through beasts, monsters, and frenzied townsfolk to survive the night and uncover the source of the madness that consumes it.”
Earlier this year, Deracine, a virtual reality title by From Software included some Bloodborne easter eggs which also hinted at a possible sequel, Bloodborne 2. Hidetaka Miyazaki however, has denied any Bloodborne 2 development rumors for the time being.
Since the board game is based on the original award-winning Bloodborne by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Bloodborne: The Board Game aims to “bring the original game to life with amazing miniatures!”
You can get Bloodborne: The Board Game somewhere around May 2020 if you make a 100$ pledge through its Kickstarter.
