Playing Co-Op in Bloodborne with your friends is difficult

Death simulator Bloodborne has been getting some pretty rave reviews lately and everyone seems to be loving the game. Something we don’t love is how messed up the game’s Co-Op system is.

To play Co-Op in Bloodborne you need to go through a couple of steps. First you need a Beckoning Bell, an item dropped by the game’s first boss in the Hunter’s Dream. You’ll have to use the Beckoning Bell to signal that you want to play Co-Op but that’s not all as there has to be a person doing the same thing in the same area. As you can guess by now, this reduces the chances of finding other people to play with considerably. After that you’ll have use another item called the Silencing Bank to stop looking for Co-Op partners or get rid of your current one if you were lucky enough to get matched.


This makes joining your friends’ sessions extremely hard as the matching system is completely random. People playing the game recommend setting a unique password in the Network section and searching in the system area while being around the same level, maybe consider giving that a try?

Bloodborne releases today in North America and worldwide throughout the week exclusively for the Playstation 4. Let us know your thoughts on Bloodborne in the comments below.
