For the first time ever, a PS4 emulator can boot Bloodborne

A couple of days ago, we shared a video showcasing the Playstation 4 emulator, RPCSX, booting and running Sonic Mania. And today, we have a special video for all our FromSoftware fans. From the looks of it, this new PS4 emulator can actually boot Bloodborne, making it the first Playstation 4 emulator to ever achieve this.

Now before continuing, I’d suggest tempering your expectations. While the emulator can boot Bloodborne, it cannot offer a playable experience.

For starters, RPCSX still does not offer input functionalities. So, although you can boot some games on RPCSX, you cannot yet play them. Moreover, the emulator does not display any graphics while booting Bloodborne (you’ll only get a black screen).

Still, this is a huge step for emulating Sony’s console. As said, none of the previous Playstation 4 emulator could actually boot Bloodborne. Spine, KytyfpPS4 and GPCS4 can still be considered a bit more advanced than RPCSX. However, only RPCSX can, at the time of writing, boot this game.

Needless to say that you should not expect to be playing Bloodborne on PC anytime soon. However, this might be the only way via which we’ll experience Bloodborne on PC. After all, Bloodborne was absent from the GeForce Now leaked list.

Last year, we saw some rumors suggesting that a remaster was in development for PS5 and PC. However, after a whole year of nothingness, we can safely say that those rumors were fake.

Lastly, you can go ahead and watch this 60fps video for Bloodborne. Since the game is locked at 30fps on consoles, this video can give you an idea of how the game will play on the PC. That is of course via a PS4 emulator and with a 60fps patch.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
