Bloodborne: The Old Hunters Image Shows Vicious Looking New Weapon
Take a look at the Juunikutachi.
The official Twitter account for Bloodborne has released a picture of one of the new weapons being introduced in the upcoming expansion, The Old Hunters.
Called "Juunikutachi," the weapon looks like the Saw Cleaver found in the original game, but also seems to be constructed of multiple modules, suggesting it may function similar to the Threaded Cane, which could break apart and strike multiple enemies at once.
As revealed during Tokyo Game Show, The Old Hunters tells the story of the "legendary hunters" referenced in the main game and is set in a "nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever."
The expansion will feature "new environments, outfits, and weapons." Ludwig, a prominent character in the game's lore, has been confirmed as one of the expansion's new bosses.
"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," Sony previously said.
The Old Hunters will be available on November 24. It will cost $19.99 / €14.99 / £11.99. A Game of the Year Edition including the original game and the expansion will be released on November 25. A price for this has not yet been specified.
Sony has said there are no plans to launch more DLC for Bloodborne after the release of The Old Hunters.
GameSpot's Bloodborne review scored the game a 9/10: "In death there is life, and in blood, there is redemption," wrote reviewer Kevin VanOrd. "More hyperbole, yes, but for a game this theatrical, only hyperbole will do.
