Over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony confirmed that The Old Hunters launches on November 24 in North America and Europe for $19.99/€14.99/£11.99.
Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa explained:
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.
Answering some questions, Sony’s Aram Jabbari confirmed that there won’t be a standalone retail version of just The Old Hunters.
Asked if the limited edition Bloodborne game + expansion bundle is coming to North America, Jabbari said, “We have nothing to announce at this time.”
Sony boss, Shuhei Yoshida, just took the stage to thank Bloodborne fans world over as the title has sold two million copies since its release earlier this year. Yoshida also took the opportunity to announce an expansion for the game, The Old Hunters, which we already predicted. The full scale expansion will be available to download on 24th November.
We will also get an Old Hunters Edition of the game this December, which houses the full retail game, and the upcoming full scale expansion.
Stay tuned for updates and a clip of the upcoming content.
