Bloodborne: you can add gestures to your messages  

As players get deeper into Bloodborne, they keep uncovering so many of its little new additions, including this one.


Bloodborne, like all of the Souls games before it, allows players to leave messages for other players. These messages could be used to point players towards impending doom, treasure, or just be sarcastic and witty.

What you don't know is that in Bloodborne, you can add gestures to those messages. Reddit user TheCrookedSerpent discovered that you can press L1 after typing a message to add a gesture to it. Whenever a player checks said message afterwards, they will see a blue phantom of your character doing the gesture.

Very handy when you want to point towards something for instance. YouTube channel bluepolygons shows the effect in this short video.
