Steam drops free game to keep Bloodborne fans happy

Steam drops free game to keep Bloodborne fans happy

Bloodborne and Mario Kart fans will love this

While there is no official sign that Bloodborne will be released on PC anytime soon, this charming free indie game should at least keep some adventurers of Yarham happy.

Developed by FromSoftware, the famed studio that has brought us the likes of Dark Souls, Elden Ring and Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, Bloodborne is widely considered to be one of the studio's best pieces of work. However, Bloodborne was released for the PlayStation 4 in 2015 and fans have not only longed for a modern PlayStation 5 remaster but also a PC port.

Check out the Nightmare Kart trailer below!

While there have been rumours that Sony will issue a modern remaster of Bloodborne for years, there seems to be no official sign that it might actually happen, leaving fans dejected following every State of Play event. Thankfully at least, a project that began a few years ago that somehow blends the worlds of Bloodborne and Mario Kart is available to download and play for free right now.

The project in question is the indie game developed and published by LWMedia is very befittingly named, Nightmare Kart and you can download it now via Steam for PC. “You are a beast hunter, conscripted against your will to participate in a most peculiar local custom: a tournament where participants race atop mysterious vehicles comprised of copper and steam,” reads the description of the game.

“Race through blood-soaked gothic streets atop one of 12 unique vehicles as you seek answers behind the origin of this nightmare. Wield powerful weapons to reduce your opponents to scrap, slaughter beasts to raise your top speed, perform tricks and drifts to generate Æther to boost, and overcome challenging boss encounters to unlock the secrets behind this terrible dream.”

With its visuals inspired by the original PlayStation console of the 1990s, Nightmare Kart even features local multiplayer giving us that added old-school nostalgic vibe. Nightmare Kart really is a joy to behold and even if you’re not a fan of Bloodborne, I’m sure there’s plenty of fun to be had with this indie delight.

Sadly, as this is a fan-made passion project, it will never likely be released on console. That being said, the game doesn't appear to be very demanding given its original PlayStation inspiration, so hopefully, most decent PCs should be able to run it without much issue.

However, that doesn't excuse the fact that an official Bloodborne remaster is long overdue on PC and PlayStation 5. So come on Sony, make it happen, please!
