Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Edition was first launched for the PlayStation 4 console, and the game has remained unexpectedly confined on that console ever since; even years after its release, no PC port of the game has come to light. However, evidence about the full retail version of the game for PC was recently discovered online.
The renowned Souls data miner Lance McDonald has spotted the evidence for the PC version of Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Edition. McDonald spotted Screenshots from the Bloodborne Wiki page that have been taken from the PC version of Bloodborne. He noticed that Screenshots by FromSoftware environment artist Marcos Domenech showing off the oil urns were from a PC version. The difference is easy to spot thanks to the loading icon in the corner of the image.
The most intriguing aspect is that the screenshots are not from an early project-based era of development but from the full retail release of the game, suggesting that Bloodborne was fully playable on PC at some point. The screenshots are from the Fishing Hamlet area of Bloodborne’s DLC: The Old Hunters, which confirms that FromSoftware had a fully functional PC build of the entire game, including all post-launch content.
McDonald further revealed that the PC version was only used for internal/debugging purposes and never intended for public release. While the screenshots are several years old and are not intended to tease anything specific, they do confirm that there is a Bloodborne version that can be played on PCs.
Sony exclusives, including Uncharted, Spider-Man, God Of War, and the most recent of all, The Last Of Us Part 1, have received PC Ports, so chances are that Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Edition might also follow suit. However, nothing has been confirmed by FromSoftware, but if a PC port of Bloodborne is in the works, it will surely be announced at the upcoming PlayStation Showcase.
