Bloodborne Update Adds New Covenant And NPC Partners

Update: The English details are now on the PlayStation Blog.

Original Story:

It's not uncommon for a big patch to precede a piece of downloadable content or expansion.

A new update for Bloodborne has been released in preparation for the upcoming add-on, The Old Hunters, which lands on November 24.

Official patch notes haven't been released in English but a few dedicated fans have done some translating at the Bloodborne sub-Reddit page. A post on the Japanese PlayStation Blog says the update comes in at a whopping 9.37GB and introduces a fresh Covenant called The Federation. In the English version of the game, it'll likely be called The League, as previously announced. This feature actually isn't tied to the impending expansion and will be available for all players.

Additionally, the patch adds NPC co-op partners and an ancient summoning bell, which lets you bring these new NPC buddies into Chalice Dungeons. Speaking of Chalice Dungeons, they've been altered so that non-root dungeons have a glyph that creates chances for more co-op and player vs. player gameplay.

The Old Hunters is one of the more anticipated expansions of 2015; we can already hear the loyal fans drooling.

You can either play this DLC or get Dark Souls 2: Scholar of first Sin which is running for $19.99 today on Amazon (black Friday deal)

You're welcomed.

I'll buy both, so I can burn Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin, and use its fire to make marshmallows while I play The Old Hunters.
