During Sony’s presentation at the Tokyo Game Show, it was revealed that Bloodborne would be getting a story-based expansion titled “The Old Hunters.” Set to release worldwide on November 24th, the expansion will cost $19.99 by itself, or can be bought in a special Old Hunters Edition (which will include the main game for those who don’t already own it) set to release on December 3rd.

When asked about what all the expansion would entail and why players should buy it, producer Masaaki Yamagiwa had this to say:

“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.”
