    Just after the Dark Souls 3 network test, From Software had some more news to share. The news was posted to the PlayStation blog, where it was revealed that the development studio will be working with Sony to release a game of the year edition of Bloodborne.

    The new game of the year edition will be available both in-store and online from November 27. If you haven't yet had the chance to play Bloodborne, the new game of the year edition will give you a good chance to check it out. As you could have expected, the new edition will include the base Bloodborne game and a copy of the upcoming DLC expansion.

    The DLC expansion for Bloodborne is called The Old Hunters and it includes a huge amount of new content to the game. In Sony's new blog post, The Old Hunters was described as the DLC expansion to "challenge players to explore entirely new environments, including a monolithic clock tower, filled with Bloodborne's traditional blend of risk, reward and frightening boss encounters."

    Sony further went to describe The Old Hunters in their blog post about the game of the year edition of Bloodborne. Considering that the DLC expansion is the only selling point of the new version over the original copy of the game, Sony's done a good job to convince players to purchase it.

    "In addition to new environments, you'll also gain access to new outfits and weapons to bolster your beast-battling arsenal, including a fearsome new ranged weapon called Simon's Bowblade. On top of this, The Old Hunters also offers players the ability to go native and transform into terrifying beasts."

    If you already own Bloodborne it would work out cheaper to purchase the DLC on it's own, but if you do not yet, the game of the year option would be cheaper than purchasing both the DLC and a new copy of Bloodborne.

  • Bloodborne Expansion Details Revealed

    The upcoming Bloodborne expansion that everybody has been talking about for so long has finally been unveiled and there's plenty of information about it to go along with the unveiling.

    The unveiling took place at this year's Tokyo Game Show, where From Software announced the name of the expansion and what the expansion will include. From Software's Miyazaki also answered some questions about the expansion.

    So, the new expansion has been named The Old Hunters, and it will be released this November for Bloodborne. The new expansion will feature three new areas, a bunch of new weapons and a new boss fight. Interestingly, one of the new weapons is the Bowblade, which will finally bring ranged combat into the world of Bloodborne.

    You'll have to check out the trailer for The Old Hunters to see all of the other weapons which have been announced so far. None of the other weapons have had their names revealed yet, so it'll be exciting to learn more about them in the near future. One of the new bosses, Ludwig, is also seen in the trailer.

    Players will also find that there will be more opportunities to use magic in The Old Hunters - this is certainly one area of combat that could have done with some love and From Software have delivered perfectly.

    The Old Hunters will set players back $19.99 but unlike standard DLC packs, this one really will feel like a large expansion to the base Bloodborne game.

  • New Dark Souls 2 Version Planned for PS4 and Xbox One

    dark souls 2 ps4It seems that developers can't keep away from the lure of bringing their last gen games to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and seeing as the new version of GTA V managed to bring in over 3 million sales on it's first week, there is no blaming them.

    One such developer that has been rumored to join the next gen remake game is From Software, the guys behind the disgustingly challenging Dark Souls 2.

    Whilst they already have plans to bring Bloodborne to the PS4, which will be a completely new game for new gen consoles, From Software have also been working on a new remake for PS4 and Xbox One, according to Namco Bandai, From Software's publishers.

    The new remake edition will be called Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, and it will come with the full game and the three previously released DLC packs. Whilst the exciting part of this news is based on the fact that the game will come to Xbox One and PS4, the new remake will also make it to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    The new gen versions will however have updated graphics, rebalanced gameplay and an increased maximum player count in online games, as well as even more challenging enemies that all make use of the PS4 and Xbox One's improved hardware.

    Will you be interested in picking up From Software's Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin, or has the first playthrough worn you out?
