In 2022, it’s still baffling that Bloodborne isn’t on PC yet

Hey, did you know that Bloodborne is still a PlayStation exclusive? Of course you do – the internet will never let you forget. Recently, Sony deleted a Bloodborne-related tweet after a legion of fans chased it in the vain hope that an announcement was in the works. Indeed, it doesn’t take much to popularize the 2015 game on popular social media sites like Twitter. Even a targeted tweet from a well-known figure in the Souls community like Lan McDonald can shake up the wasp’s nest.

But while the constant whirlwind of fans can be annoying at times, it’s ultimately based on a fundamentally sound fact: Bloodborne is one of the few modern classics limited by outdated hardware. Regardless of where you stand on the divide between console and PC, the fact that the version of Bloodborne you can play on your shiny new PS5 is still locked at 1080p/30fps borders on publisher malpractice. But I’d much rather play it at 144fps on my shiny gaming PC, and I’m far from the only fan who feels this way.
