I doubt it's the Maiden in Black when we know the game has no connection to Demon's Souls that was announced at E3. Plus the voice though close is different from that of the Maiden in Black.

I'm not saying it's Maiden in Black, I mean just the same VO, probably a nod to Demon Souls. I read a lot of reaction too on gaf about hearing Maiden in Black's voice in the video so it's not just me.

Compare this from Demon Soul:

And the voice in the end from Bloodborne (around 1:37)

Also as an addition this is not uncommon to From Software. Sword of Moonlight appeared on their games since King's Field, Seath on both King's Field and Dark Souls, etc

I know but I still don't hear them being the same. Demon's Souls sounds slightly higher pitch in tone and the accent is different to me.

I don't though, it definitely sounds too alike. Will dig more about this. The game looks phenomenal though, if I don't have a PS4 already I might have bought one today lol.

More info on Bloodborne from the European PSBlog. Gives a more indepth look at the concept of the game, the location, and combat:

More info on Bloodborne, especially on a new mechanic, the Regain System. Basically in combat there will be a small window of oppurtunity to regain health in combat after being attacked and loosing some health. The game still will be difficult but Miyazaki wants to try and get more fans to the series.

Sounds like a nice twist to the same 'ol DS formula, personally i'm really happy with it. DS might be a really great game but it's getting stale (really felt it on DS2) personally.

I think DS2 gets more crap then it deserves. Yes it wasn't as good as it's predecessors but it's not a DA2 bad sequel, just a bit under par then we expected.

 

As for Bloodborne, yeah it will be nice for something new though. I'm interested at the multiplayer portion that has yet to be talked about. Right now the rumor is that it's going to be something similar to Journey that you will just come across others sometimes and what happens after that is up to you and the new person. You could co-op merily or kill each other. That's the rumors though so don't take it entirely serious but it would be kind of cool.

 

EDIT:

Another person's take on the demo, this one from gameinformer:

So here's are the controls of Bloodborne. Granted these are the gamescom controls so they can still change but here's an image anyways:

Interesting, I like the changes to Backstab/Backstrike :) at least now it's hard to perform rather than circling around during pvps. There's a dedicated estus/blood vial button now which is great since you don't need to much shuffling around items during combat (silver pendant during Manus usage comes to mind)

Beat me to it, was gonna post the same video.

 

I did notice this time around in this gameplay, it seems that the more you slice a enemy the more blood comes out. But the more blood that sprays on to you it heals it. I look at this a neat mechanic in a game, since the title is Bloodborne I guess alot of mechanics will revolver around Blood. But as for Demon SOuls and Dark Souls players what do you think of this mechanic?

The mechanic is the health regain mechanic. Basically if you get hit by an enemy and you attack back fast enough you shall gain back whatever health that is taken off depending on how much damage you do. Basically if you look at the health bar when the person gets hit, like all Souls games, the health you loose first is yellow. Normally in Souls game that disappears after a second showing the health you lost but in Bloodborne if you strike back fast enough you will regain that yellow bit of lost health. My only problem with it is that it seems to give you to much time to actually regain health. I think it should be shortened a bit on how much of an opening you have for the ability to regain health.

Oh okay, sorry I am not so familiar with Soul's games and past mechanics. I thought this was new, thank you for clarifying it.
