With Tokyo Game Show 2015 officially in full swing this week, one of the most exciting reveals to come from the Japan-centric trade show was the first official look at the upcoming Bloodborne: The Old Hunters, a major DLC expansion for the critically-acclaimed PS4 exclusive that may appear to be the game’s only expansion.
Speaking with Eurogamer in an interview, Sony Japan producer Masaaki Yamagiwa gave plenty of new insights of what to expect from The Old Hunters, which had its first trailer released earlier this week and was confirmed to debut in November of this year.
Yamagiwa detailed that “we were originally planning on doing two sets of DLC” in Eurogamer‘s interview, though ultimately the decision came down to combining them into one pack to allow the developers “to do more with it, and have more volume for players to play with.”
However, Yamagiwa did also note that “as of right now, we have no plans for any more DLC,” making it likely that The Old Hunters may be the game’s only major expansion, though obviously we may have to wait and see whether developer From Software is intending to revisit the world of Yharnam once more.
Despite the fact that the DLC may be the only major one coming to Bloodborne (at least any time soon), Yamagiwa also gave more insight on what to expect from the DLC, which this week’s reveal trailer already showed new weapons, locations, and plenty of bosses both new and old, though featuring slight remixes of bosses from the original game. Yamagiwa teased that “the DLC’s an opportunity to meet – in some form or another – the old heroes of Yharnam.”
Bloodborne: The Old Hunters will release for PS4 on November 24th, 2015 digitally, with a physical release to follow on December 3rd, 2015 with both the expansion and original game.
