Bloodborne: The Old Hunters review
Editor's note: This review goes into some small spoiler territory with the identity of bosses and details on locations in The Old Hunters - so if you want go into From Software's expansion with fresh eyes, be warned.
To fire up the PS4 and feed in that Bloodborne disc one more time is a treat. Gamers have been left so bruised and battered by the industry's total embrace of DLC that we sometimes forget about the good side: an unexpected addition to a masterpiece, rather than a bloodsucking season pass. The Old Hunters is an expansion for From Software's Bloodborne and, like Artorias of the Abyss for Dark Souls, adds to a wonderful whole - without taking anything away.
The Old Hunters is set in 'The Hunter's Nightmare,' a self-contained universe where blood-crazed hunters wage perpetual war on a never-ending flow of beasts. But first you have to get there. One of the most unusual aspects of Miyazaki's approach to DLC is that it slots into the pre-existing game world rather than as a separate menu option - though luckily the requirements here aren't quite as strict as in Dark Souls (you can find out a little more about how to gain access here.) This principle hints at the broader aim with The Old Hunters. This is a meaty, detailed, crimson-soaked chunk of endgame Bloodborne, designed to give experienced hunters palpitations and freshly shock the returning troops. It does not condescend to your abilities for a second.
