Original Story:

North Americans won’t be left out of the Bloodborne alpha festivities, with a Sony Computer Entertainment America rep confirming to Destructoid that invites will be going out later today.

Since this isn’t an open alpha, there will only be a select group of people chosen to test out the game. According to that SCEA rep, participants were pre-selected based on the following criteria:

  • PlayStation 4 ownership
  • Specific trophy requirement across Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and/or Dark Souls 2 on PS3

If you aren’t chosen for the alpha, the SCEA rep confirmed that there will be no other ways to participate since this is a development tool and not a promotion.

If you live in North America and receive a Bloodborne alpha invite today, feel free to let everyone know in the comments below.

The full Bloodborne game will be available for the PlayStation 4 on February 6, 2015.
