Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night E3 2018 Demo Now Available to Select Backers on PC

Full Disclosure: I have financially backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on Kickstarter.

505 Games and developer Inti Creates have announced a new demo for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

The game’s playable demo, shown off at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, is now available to “select” Kickstarter backers who pledged $60 or more to the game.

Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game. Here’s a rundown on the game:

Now available as a digital download on Steam for PC, players will be treated to refined content and features, while previewing new enemies and NPCs and taking a deeper look at game narrative and quests. First showcased at 2018 E3 earlier this month, the demo places players on a sailing ship upon stormy seas before progressing through a village and into a dark castle setting, introducing new characters, enemies and bosses along the way. For the first time, players will also be able to experience alchemy and crafting and visit shopkeeper/exorcist Dominique to stock up on various goods to aid them on their journey.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is on track for a release sometime in the first half of this year, across PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game’s throwback prequel, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, here (we highly recommend it!).
