Bloodborne, the latest action role playing game developed by From Software now available exclusively on PlayStation 4 in all regions, is soon going to receive its first DLC pack, which will introduce new content to the game. Later today, however, all Bloodborne players will be able to enjoy some new features thanks to a new patch. A few hours ago the full patch notes for the Bloodborne 1.07 patch have been made available, detailing all the changes and tweaks included in it.
The Bloodborne 1.07 full patch notes have only been made available on the official PlayStation Japan website as of now but thanks to reddit user spacemanticore we can read them in English. You can check them out right below.
- New “Covenant” — The Federation
This is the covenant of the hunters that share the objective of the “Federation”. You can meet Valtir, leader of the Federation, and join the Federation by talking to him when available.
The Federation will be available in the hut next to the first shortcut in the Forbidden Forest, next to the first lamp.
You will receive an item after each successful multiplayer session — an “insect”. Your ranking within the Federation is determined by how many insects you have crushed.
- Additional NPC Co-op Partners
It will be possible summon NPC phantoms of Federation members in several areas.
Old Hunter NPCs will now be available to for summon in both the Chalice Dungeons and the base game. After you meet certain criteria, you will be able to purchase the “Ancient Summoning Bell” in the Hunter’s Dream. Using this item will consume insight and will allow you to summon the phantoms of certain Old Hunters throughout the game. It should be noted that you can only have a maximum of two summoned NPC phantoms at one time. Summoning a real player will reduce that amount to one and so on.
- Changes in the Chalice Dungeons
Non-root Chalice Dungeons will now have have a standardized glyph that will open the way for far more co-op and pvp opportunities. You should now be able to connect to players exploring the non-root/story dungeons without needing to meet with them via their unique glyph. However, you will still be able to create these non-root dungeons with a “unique” glyph if you wish to not participate in random co-op and PvP.
- Changes in Co-op Partner Illusions
If you are the player using a summoning bell, you will now have the option to see phantoms or ghosts of other players also searching for co-op or multiplayer.
Plays who are searching for co-op or multiplayer will now display ripples on their phantom, indicating that players in the area are searching for each other. Please note that you can only see the ripples on phantoms that are within summoning range of your character.
We have also implemented some other changes and improved the matchmaking to some degree.
Bloodborne is now available in all regions on PlayStation 4. The Bloodborne: The Old Hunters DLC will be released in all regions on November 24th
