As if a sizeable DLC expansion for Bloodborne wasn’t enough to get you excited about rejoining The Hunt, From Software will also be giving players some free content prior to the release of The Old Hunters.
In a post on Sony’s official PlayStation blog, Masaaki Yamagiwa, Producer for Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio, announced ‘The League,’ a new co-op focused covenant for the player to join.
Hello, Bloodborne fans. The brand new nightmare, The Old Hunters expansion (which requires the full game), will be unleashed on November 24th. It brings with it a host of new content and improvements, but it’s not the only exciting news for Bloodborne. An upcoming patch will offer all players exciting new features in the original game, including The League, additional co-op NPC hunters, and more.
The League is a band of Hunters who have taken an oath and are bound by a single purpose. By aligning yourself to The League, led by a mysterious figure in a constable’s garb and bucket helmet, you can assist other players online in the game and compete in The League’s online rankings leaderboard.
In addition to The League, players will also be able to use The League cane and summon co-op NPCs within the game, perfect for tackling challenging areas and bosses.
A release date for the free patch has yet to be announced, but The Old Hunters expansion is set to hit Bloodborne on November 24, so expect it sooner rather than later.
