Bloodborne 1.04 patch is now live on PSN with a list of very welcome changes.


Sony and From Software have released patch 1.04 for Bloodborne. The patch is around 300MB in size.

The patch notes were not published in English, only in Japanese. The most important change is the removal of the level difference requirement when using a co-op password.
