What's Behind That Closed Door In Bloodborne? Uh...Nothing?
For a while now, Bloodborne fans have been wondering about a certain closed door.
This door in the Cathedral Ward says "closed," not "locked" or "does not open from this side." Nobody has been able to figure it out until now; check the video below.
The door actually links back to the end of the Great Bridge, where you fight the Cleric Beast. The discovery was made by lodging a few Shining Coins in the mystery door; you still can't get in there but you can see where it goes. So, why does this fake shortcut exist at all? What's the deal? Is it simply to toy with our brains?
Eurogamer theorizes that it's just another prank pulled by developer From Software. Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki pulled a similar stunt in Dark Souls where a player was asked to choose a gift at the game's opening. One item was a pendant that had "no effect, but fond memories comfort travelers." Eventually, we found out the pendant really was useless.
So, maybe Miyazaki did it again. ...ha ha.
