Bloodborne Finally Running On PC Thanks To shadPS4 Emulator

Expert Verified By

Fans Took PC Port In Their Own Hands!

Story Highlight
  • It’s been nearly a decade, but there’s still no news about the PC port of Bloodborne.
  • A PS4 emulator is finally getting close to this dream, with shadPS4 making the game playable.
  • While this version is not fully playable, it marks an important step toward the ultimate goal.

It’s been nine years since the release of Bloodborne, and while a PC port of the title was in development at some point, Sony has never looked back at the franchise since.

Recently, FromSoftware has also noticed the huge demand for a PC port. While Sony continues to ignore fan demand, a PS4 emulator, shadPS4, is finally capable of running Bloodborne on PC.

Why it matters: This marks a major milestone toward the goal of getting this FromSoftware hit on PC. Thanks to fan efforts, PlayStation’s official port may no longer be needed.

Earlier, we reported that shadPS4 was making rapid progress. The emulator has seen further progress recently, making Bloodborne playable. The video above shows the team booting this game and getting to the character creation.

While there is still a lot of work to be done, this is an important first step. The video shows that various visual bugs and glitches still exist, but these will undoubtedly be ironed out as more progress is made.

shadPS4 is also far from the only PS4 emulator in the works. Others like GPCS4, RPCSX, and Kyty are working toward the mutual goal of getting PS4 titles working on the PC platform.

Still, it is important to note that a fully playable version of Bloodborne will take a while. Fans need to stay patient since there’s a chance Sony will release an official remake in a few more years.

A reliable leaker has suggested that a remake of the game is in development, but it will be released for the PS6, skipping the current-gen consoles. Therefore, fans can only wait and see how the situation develops from here on out.

Bloodborne fans are known to cling to the smallest bit of hope for a PC port, so this update is worth taking note of. We await further updates from the team behind shadPS4 and RPCSX since both of them seem to have made the most progress for Bloodborne emulation.
