PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne reported to have long loadtimes


Nobody likes long loading screens and by the looks of things frustration simulator Bloodborne will have some very hefty ones. In a webm posted on Reddit by a user who already has the game, the loadtimes after dying and going back to a checkpoint are around 35 seconds. This is very long for a game where you die very frequently.

Check out the video below:



Lets hope Sony issues a patch and reduce the time, such a long wait is certainly not acceptable. If I remember correctly Dark Souls 2 has a sub 15 second load time so returning players will immediately understand the issue.

Are the long loading times because of poor optimisation by the developers or is the PS4 simply not able to push enough power for a game like Bloodborne? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Bloodborne is a Playstation 4 exclusive and releases on March 24.

    I wonder if SSD will decrease that load time? It did on Destiny and on FFXIV.

    So half the time of Destiny loading screens and a little shorter than DS2 Its obviously not the best but if its the only complaint Ill take it. I know the wait times are worth it. FROM has always been good to its fans, I am sure they know and will work hard to fix.

    I really want to be interested in this game. But everywhere I turn, there’s just something detering me.

      It’s a Souls game. If you played the previous ones, you can’t say no to this.
