Hello, Bloodborne fans. Thanks to the tremendous support from all of you, the passionate Bloodborne community, we are very proud to announce that Bloodborne has now sold through more than 2 million* units worldwide.

It is on the heels of this milestone that we can confirm that the highly anticipated expansion for Bloodborne is almost upon us. The wait is almost over, and a new nightmare is almost here…

Starting November 24th, download the Bloodborne DLC expansion The Old Hunters for $19.99 and experience the nightmare of the hunters who once guarded Byrgenwerth’s darkest secrets.

Set in a nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever, explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to overcome. You’ll find multiple new outfits and weapons to add to your arsenal as well as additional magic to wield and add more variety to your combat strategy.

With new story details, learn the tale of hunters who once made Yharnam their hunting grounds, meet new NPCs, and discover another side of the history and world of Bloodborne. Here’s a brief glimpse of just some of what lies in store for you when The Old Hunters launches on November 24th, including Simon’s Bowblade weapon, and new boss enemy Ludwig.

    That trailer got my blood pumping…

    I hope that the creators add more opportunities to upgrade weapons to +10 or maybe even go beyond that because with all the new weapons it will be hard or impossible to be able to get them all up to that level unless you play through the game for as many weapons there are.

Gratz on 2M!

And really can’t wait to for more BB.

Interesting… It’s not just new location. It’s like… different time but the same world/zones? Are we getting any new locations? Will it be accessible from main menu as a separate game? That would make sense if this is the same world, just in a different time. Detaaaaaails, WTB detaaails! :P

SaviorMachine said:

September 15th, 1:40 am

Will there be a retail disc for the DLC, by itself (not packaged with the original game)?

Congrats on 2+ Million guys! Game really deserves more! I’ll be buying the Expansion Day 1 as I’ve been itching for more Bloodborne since I earned the Platinum trophy in it. Please say it has new trophies as well.

    fishypaste said:

    September 15th, 10:39 am

    I am hoping Bloodborne expansion gets trophies this time around. The game deserves it because it’s so addictive and I think people won’t mind the extra achievements.

Why the US version is more expensive than the EU?

    Sszchera said:

    September 15th, 2:12 am

    It isn’t

    Hitokiri_03 said:

    September 15th, 5:30 am

    It is, the DLC is €14.99.

    halicarnassis said:

    September 15th, 8:28 am

    Its like a tenner!

    Strangeheaven said:

    September 15th, 2:35 pm

    The price is actually cheaper in the UK for once. £11.99 is roughly $18.

    PJ__Bottoms said:

    September 17th, 9:17 pm

    It’s actually the opposite. €14.99 = $23.34 USD. EU is more expensive than US.

Bigsilvs said:

September 15th, 1:50 am

$20? That is steep! I am going to pass on that price. Out of all the Souls games, Bloodborne is my least favorite anyways.

    September 15th, 4:40 am

    You’re silly. This an Expansion Pack, not simply DLC. Don’t forget, the entire Crowns series for DS2 was 30 bucks. I know I’ll be buying. Did you see that bow???

lord_lad said:

When will the preorder be up on PSN?

KevinTrinh1111 said:

ready to pre order

lisatsunami said:

September 15th, 2:40 am

Wow, over 2 million! That’s fantastic for a new, exclusive IP in this niche genre. Congratulations to Playstation and FromSoft.

FromSoft, you make me so mad sometimes and that only deepens my love of your games. Yes, of course I’ll buy this DLC, day 1 or better, pre-order, pre-load.

So awesome! Can’t wait! Look at those weapons! And Ludwig as a boss? NICE

Will the limited edition be available in NA? Thank you!

    We have nothing to announce at this time.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Can’t wait for this! Love Bloodborne and I recommend fans of the series go subscribe to these souls based podcasts:
Poison arrow by epic name bro
Bonfireside chat
Twin humanities
Dark souls II

They do a great job of dissecting the game and trying to piece together the lore, and the community for bonfireside chat’s Facebook is a really good place to meet fellow souls nuts

zingakun said:

Does anyone know if this will be the only expansion for Bloodborne?

AncLEoniX said:

September 15th, 6:22 am

Holy crap! I’m ready. Gotta keep them trophies at 100%.

EarthTable said:

September 15th, 6:27 am

Please release the PS4 Yakuza games in NA . I

September 15th, 6:34 am

I have been waiting patiently for an expansion from Bloodborne. Soon, I will begin the hunt again. Thank You!

HuckQ said:

September 15th, 6:34 am

Is the expansion standalone, or is the main game required?

    Hitokiri_03 said:

    September 15th, 7:35 am

    Main game required.

Vyprstryke said:

September 15th, 6:56 am

Is it safe to assume that the US will also be getting a retail release a week or so later?

    Strangeheaven said:

    September 15th, 2:42 pm

    Pretty much assume the limited edition retail version will come out in Japan and the UK. But it would be nice if it releases in the US also.

Been waiting 4 this one !! Thank you, Thank you !

Kchow23 said:

September 15th, 8:29 am

So excited!!!

halicarnassis said:

September 15th, 8:31 am

I see at least 5 new weapons, 4 new bosses and that spell!! Plus a MASSIVE new area to explore… You buys really seem to have addressed the communities negative points in lack of variety in the game (not that I complained about it). Now lets hope there’s a rune somewhere that’ll half the damage from the Evelyn or some armour designed to deflect those godawful bloodtinge chickage unsheathe attacks which many players keep spamming.

Oh man…time to fear the old blood, once again.

Between this, Destiny’s expansion and Vanillaware’s new game announcement, today is turning out to be a hell of a day.

ZoSam32 said:

September 15th, 9:12 am

Please tell me we can purchase the OST to this DLC. Absolutely love the original OST!

    MakoSOLIDER said:

    September 15th, 1:59 pm

    That’s what I’m wondering too. I love the music in this trailer.

creaturekyle said:

September 15th, 9:13 am

Ugh, I just drooled all over my keyboard.

Baccra said:

September 15th, 10:34 am

Trailer is cool, but anyway to re-release it with better audio? You can barely hear/understand the people talking because of the music volume.

Kchow23 said:

September 15th, 10:45 am

I hope Micholash is back :3 Grant us eyes!!

Zyrish said:

September 15th, 11:37 am

Sigh…I guess I have to go and beat the game now…I gave up when I got to those Fing Bell Ladies, where if they ring their bell, enemies respawn. That was 2-3 days of many tissues and tears. :( Looking forward to more tears.

    NecroNick92 said:

    September 15th, 12:03 pm

    You can do it! There is a way to go around some of those maidens but your priority should be getting rid of them do you can proceed unhindered.

bbswarrior_11 said:

September 15th, 11:44 am

Bloodborne tore me asunder and I enjoyed every minute of it.. Very excited for this dlc… looks even more gruesome than before.

NecroNick92 said:

September 15th, 12:00 pm

I am so incredibly hyped for this expansion! I’m really excited for the new hammer weapon and the longsword/warpick combination! And that longbow ohhh… it all looks amazing, and let’s not forget the full blown beast mode with the beast claws! Also, that saw cleaver with the lightning effect, perhaps using bolt gems and fire gems on weapons will give us an awesome visual effect now?

Super, super excited, can’t wait! I have so many new builds planned!

Saw that coming,nice trailer and its really good to see the support for Bloodborne and damn!! 2 million?…hoou quite a lot.Congratulations the game sure deserves.
I still don’t have Bloodborne but its a confirmed buy and of course…I’ll be getting the DLC too.

GrinchVulture said:

September 15th, 2:19 pm

Will the US get the Dec. 5 edition that includes both the expansion and original? Haven’t played Bloodborne yet and would like to get it all in one purchase. Very excited. Tell me — yes.

    Strangeheaven said:

    September 15th, 2:45 pm

    UK and Japan only most likely will get the limited edition. But US may get it also.

NerdOfLucifer said:

September 16th, 1:22 am

Does anybody know if they’re just doing the one expansion? I’m a little confused as they’re doing a retail release with Old Hunters and I thought that they’d only release a full disc version when all DLCs were out….but I suppose if they make more money that way :S

jade0029 said:

September 16th, 7:14 am

Absolutely loved Bloodborne, this will definitely be one of the few DLC’s I will ever purchase!

I have one question though, I own the Asian version of the game, but I use a US PSN account. Will this DLC be region locked?

porcul-fermecat said:

September 16th, 7:54 am

does ‘bloodborne old hunters’ edition announced at TGS mean it’s the only dlc that Bloodborne will get? like dark souls 1 definitive edition which includes the DLC artorias of the abyss… or are there more DLCs coming?

Ryusennin said:

September 16th, 8:58 am


Hopefully PS+ members will get a launch discount.

IrishCross88 said:

September 16th, 5:24 pm

Any word on if the expansion can only be accessed at a certain point in the game, similar to the previous Souls games? I wanna know to prepare for getting to a certain point in my next playthrough or not.

gaming_phantom14 said:

September 17th, 9:13 am

but a question, i heard it will only be availabe for japan first, is that true? (Please dont be!)

alihan_9898 said:

September 17th, 10:38 am

Can i play this dlc separately? (I mean without having the original game)
