The Bloodborne expansion The Old Hunters releases next week on November 24. Ahead of the release, however, everyone will get a free patch this weekend.

Sony confirmed previously the patch will add The League, a covenant-type pact you could join and summon others to help. It also adds a new NPC.

The Old Hunters expansion itself adds new weapons, bosses, areas, and more. One of these weapons is Simon's Bowblade, a blade that can turn into a bow. Sony hosted a Nico Nico livestream to show it off.

The Old Hunters is priced $20/£16 and is available now for pre-load.
