Bloodborne is About to Make a Big Comeback


  • Bloodborne fans are planning to return to the game from March 24 to April 7 for the community-driven Return to Yharnam event.
  • Multiplayer elements of Bloodborne have become more difficult to enjoy as time goes on and players move to other games.
  • The event encourages players to create new characters, engage in co-op, and revitalize the game’s community.

Fans of FromSoftware’s beloved action-RPG Bloodborne are promising to return to the game from March 24 to April 7 as part of the Return to Yharnam event. Bloodborne was first released in 2015. It was easy to engage in Bloodborne‘s co-op and PvP back when the game launched, but nine years later, it’s a bit more difficult for players to enjoy the game’s multiplayer elements.

The unfortunate reality of many FromSoftware games is that their multiplayer components become increasingly inaccessible as time goes on and players migrate to other games. Right now, most FromSoftware fans are likely playing Elden Ring in anticipation of the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, but it looks like Bloodborne will soon be getting a significant influx of players.


As Years Goes by, a Bloodborne Remaster May Not Be Enough

Bloodborne is one of PlayStation’s most sacred relics now and if it isn’t going to be revisited wholeheartedly it should be left well enough alone.

The community-driven Return to Yharnam 2024 event is scheduled to take place March 24 to April 7. As detailed by prominent Bloodborne community member Meph, players are being asked to create a new Bloodborne character and play through the game all over again. Players are encouraged to “engage in as much co-op along the way as possible” and leave messages near lanterns saying, “you’re in the know, right?” This call to revitalize the Bloodborne community should result in the game making a significant comeback in terms of player count, at least relative to its current player count, anyway.

Bloodborne Return to Yharnam 2024 Dates

Return to Yharnam is an annual Bloodborne event that the community runs to encourage people to return to the game and revitalize its online components. Anyone that has yet to jump into Bloodborne may very well want to consider doing so during this year’s Return to Yharnam event, as this may be the best way to fully experience the game since it originally launched all the way back in 2015.

Other Bloodborne fans may be holding out on jumping back into the game in case the long-rumored remaster or remake ever materializes. Fans have been waiting for news on a Bloodborne remaster for years, but such a project has yet to materialize. Others have been hoping for Sony to announce a Bloodborne sequel, but that has yet to happen either. Still, rumors persist.

FromSoftware is busy making Elden Ring DLC right now, but its next major project post-Shadow of the Erdtree has yet to be announced. More information on FromSoftware’s next project will likely be revealed at some point after Shadow of the Erdtree‘s June 21 release date.
