If you wanted to get in on the Bloodborne alpha, it doesn't look like it's going to be an easy go of it. The alpha test will be getting underway tomorrow on October 1st. You'll only have a total of three days to get some time in with the game before the alpha test finishes up.

Back in mid-September, it was made known that an alpha test would be starting, following the announcement of the game's official release date.

Today, it was made known when the alpha test would get underway and for how long it would run. You can check out the image showcasing the invite screen, courtesy of All Games Beta.



You'll be able to get in some game-time with Bloodborne starting Wednesday, and then again on Friday, and one more time on Sunday. Over here in the good 'ole U.S., the times would land somewhere in the early afternoon. But as the other image shows, most of the alpha test start times begin around the early evening over via Central European Time. Check it out below.



Unfortunately it's only going to be three hour sessions. So essentially you'll want to be primed and ready for when it's time for the alpha tests to start up and then get your game time in before they shut down again.

I have to be honest, I haven't been all that sold on Bloodborne; I know it's from the same designer that brought us Demon's Souls and the revival of the hack-and-slash RPG with subsequent titles like Dark Souls, but it's hard to get into the game.

A lot of it has to do with the small environments, limited combat systems and the lack of back-and-forth action Maybe if there were a more in-depth counter-system or counter-attack combo mechanic with different enemies having their own patterns and whatnot, it might have added a bit more to the overall appeal of the mechanics beyond the standard combos or attacks with each of the weapons. That's not to say that some of the weapons aren't cool, because some of them are, like the unfolding cleaver or the katana.

Nevertheless, the PS4 is lacking a lot of AAA-quality exclusives at the moment and a lot of gamers just want something new and different... even though technically Bloodborne isn't quite as new and different as some people might have been expecting.

I'm sure we'll find out exactly how well the game appeals to the average gamer when the alpha test gets underway tomorrow.

Bloodborne is set to release exclusively for the PlayStation 4 beginning next year on February 6th, 2015. If you feel like learning a bit more about the game you can do so by paying a kind visit to the official website.
