Bloodborne’s biggest flaw has now been fixed thanks to a new patch. Instead of suffering through 45+ second load times, now you can enjoy 10-15 second load times. Think of all the deaths you can fit into every session now!
You can see the new load times in the video above. The exact time it takes to load between different areas varies, but it is still generally way faster than the older loading times. Note that instead of simply showing you a screen that says BLOODBORNE while it loads, the game now shows you item descriptions of various objects in its world. Like so:
It’s not clear to me if it only shows you items you carry, or any item at all. The latter could be a spoiler! Either way, these loading screens are certainly more interesting than just looking at the title over and over again.
To download the update, you can press the “options” button while hovering over Bloodborne on the PS4 home menu. From there, select “check for update.”
