Some more details about Bloodborne’s upcoming expansion have been revealed by an interview with series producer Masaaki Yamagiwa.


Speaking with Justin Haywald over at Gamespot, Yamagiwa shared a few details about what The Old Hunters will add. The full interview is well worth reading, but here are the most interesting points:

  • There will be three stages, and you will not be able to access them from a sub-menu or from the beginning. The content is locked off until a certain point in the game.
  • The setting “is a nightmare where the Old Hunters have been trapped”, and the lore of Yharnam will be expanded upon.
  • There will be 10-15 new weapons, as many players have requested more weapons in the game. There will be new armour sets too.
  • Difficulty-wise, it should be about on par with the later sections of the game.
  • In regard to all the secrets and theories out there about what Bloodborne is all about: “we have some very fun tricks up our sleeve for the final version of the game”.

Bloodborne: The Old Hunters releases on November 24.
