The U.S. version of the Alpha will be taking place during the same days as the Japan tests and will also be in three phases.
- Phase 1: October 1, 5-8 p.m. PST
- Phase 2: October 3, 5-8 p.m. PST
- Phase 3: October 5, 5-8 p.m. PST
The test is purely for Sony to test out server load and some online interactions for players and won’t be a representation of the final product. Those lucky enough to gain access to the alpha will get a direct download link via a PlayStation Network notification. The rest of the information is more of the same from the earlier release (and obvious information such as not being able to access the game during offline hours and after the alpha).
Bloodborne releases February 6, 2015 and is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
