From Software has said is targeting an early 2015 Bloodborne release date.
Additionally, the PS4 exclusive action game will be playable publicly for the first time at Gamescom in Germany next month.
"We're really working flat out to get this game out for early 2015," producer Jun Yoshino said during a recent event attended by Digital Spy.
"We're going to be there at all upcoming major game shows like Gamescom, where we'll have our first hands-on demo on pods on the show floor. There we can gauge first hand the reaction to the game."
It will retain strategic elements found in Demon's Souls while transitioning to a faster, more offensive combat style. Players will be able to use melee weapons as well as guns to fight their way through the diseased horrors of the game's 19th century setting, the city of Yharnam.
Though the player character comes to Yharnam seeking a remedy for an unspecified affliction, the traveller finds the city stricken by a horrific contagion that transforms both beasts and humans into bloodthirsty monsters.
