Tomorrow marks the release of Bloodborne: The Old Hunters, and like all things Bloodborne-related, accessing this DLC is a surprisingly complex task. No, you can’t just pay your 20 bucks, then access the DLC from Bloodborne‘s title screen, that would be too easy. Instead you have to…
– Beat Vicar Amelia in the Cathedral Ward. Once you’ve beat the boss, examine the altar in the back of the church to change the in-game time to night.
– Go back to the Hunter’s Dream hub and talk to the messenger. She’ll give you the Eye of a Blood-Drunk Hunter.
– Go to the Oedon Chapel, and exit out the left-hand entrance into the square.
– Search around the right side of the square and you should trigger an event that will take you to a new DLC area, The Hunter’s Nightmare.
I know From Software games being user-unfriendly is part of the charm, but yeesh. Thankfully, it sounds like The Old Hunters will be well worth 20 bucks and jumping through a few hoops, as it contains four new areas, five bosses, and 10 weapons. You can check out a trailer for Bloodborne: The Old Hunters at the top of this post.
