Hidetaka Miyazaki has revealed some of the character creation details for the upcoming PS4 video game, "Bloodborne." According to a report from Gamepur on June 15, the game director confirmed that players will be able to create their own avatars in the action role-playing game. The features should be similar to the one found in "Demon's Souls," a PS3 exclusive game that was also directed by the same individual.

Hidetaka Miyazaki went on to disclose that the female gender can be selected while adding that the face can also be customized. He believed that creating characters is one of the most enjoyable aspects of role-playing games, even those that cater more to the tactical side. From Software will also be implementing more facial customization options, some of which may be revealed in the near future, when compared to the previous titles.

Finally, the game director also talked to Dengeki Online about the other aspects of "Bloodborne." Although the video game features several online elements, which should be based on the foundations set by "Demon's Souls," Hidetaka Miyazaki confirmed that the software product can also be played offline. The amount of animations will be getting an increase as well.

"Bloodborne" was initially rumored to be "Demon's Souls 2" as From Software will be teaming up once again with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio after going into multiplatform development with the "Dark Souls" series. Instead of a sequel, the companies decided to create a new unique intellectual property. The upcoming product was leaked with the name of "Project Beast" before being officially announced under a new name at E3 2014.

Fans of From Software should not have to wait long for the video game. "Bloodborne" is scheduled for a spring release next year in North America exclusively for the PS4 next-generation system. You can check out the action role-playing game with a screen from the official Playstation Facebook page near the top of this article.
