During Tokyo Game Show, From Software revealed new details about the upcoming expansion for Bloodborne, The Old Hunter. Originally meant to be released as two different DLC packs, all the content was combined into a single expansion and will release this November.
"We were originally planning on doing two sets of DLC. It was decided that with one set, we'd be able to do more with it, and have more volume for players to play with. As of right now, we have no plans for any more DLC," Masaaki Yamagiwa, Sony Japan's producer for Bloodborne, told Eurogamer.
"I should mention, though, we finished making the game and then moved into production on the DLC. It took that long, but that's because of the sheer amount of volume. We're sorry it took so long! But it's as fast as was possible considering what's in it," Yamagiwa added.
The developer also revealed several details about this expansion to Eurogamer. To start off, The Old Hunters will become available at some point in the first half of the game and after certain conditions have been met. But despite this, players can expect a level of difficulty similar to the latter half of game's main campaign.
In terms of content, The Old Hunter will deliver enough to keep players busy for a while. Featuring three completely new areas and 10 new weapons, this expansion promises to deliver over 8 hours of gameplay. In addition, The Old Hunters will also introduce new NPCs that can be summoned, and that will be interspersed throughout Bloodborne's existing campaign.
The Old Hunters releases on the 24th of November and will be available for £11.99/$19.99/â‚¬19.99. For those that missed Bloodborne the first time around, a special edition of Bloodborne, which includes The Old Hunters DLC, will be released on the 3rd of December.
