Best put a call in to your parents and see if they've still got your old childhood night light. You're going to need it.
Crawling from the nightmarish minds of Japanese developer FromSoftware, Bloodborne is the next-gen spiritual successor to the fiendishly difficult Dark Souls series.
Set in the cursed city of Yharnam, players must wander the macabre cobbled streets battling the deformed horrors that have sprung up in the wake of a mysterious viral outbreak. Think Resident Evil, but with sharper edges and more flames.
Grim, gorgeous and harder than the average nail, this is a title that promises to run against the gaming grain of instant gratification.
Bloodborne arrives on the PlayStation 4 on 24 March
