YEBIS 2 Works Behind Bloodborne

Silicon Studio celebrates the release of Bloodborne. This hardcore action title extensively uses YEBIS 2 middleware solution which makes the whole title shine in its moody glory.

We all know Silicon Studio and the technologies this company makes. The company provided its fantastic middleware YEBIS 2 to Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Japan Studio and FromSoftware – two of the biggest and most impressive studios in Japan. YEBIS 2 was used to power the visual effects in the PlayStation 4 title Bloodborne.

The way it [Bloodborne] looks; just off the charts to me. It has, I’ve said this before … there’s a certain, like, wetness to that game. I don’t know what other word to use. It just feels like everything is dripping and oozing with whatever it is–it’s water, it’s blood, it’s whatever it is; and it just looks gorgeous.

Scott Rohde, PlayStation Software Product Development Head for Sony Worldwide Studios America

Bloodborne boasts some very impressive visual effects with incredible high quality post-effects. The light, the smoke, the air and smoke – everything looks realistic and very stylized, thanks to fantastic visual versatility.
