A trailer for Bloodborne: The Old Hunters showed off some of the new and revised content coming in the expansion, which includes a batch of new weapons, including what appeared to be a spiked wheel, a curved sword and a bow and arrow. The trailer also showed a series of new and remixed boss battles, including what appeared to bosses with new elemental attributes.

Update: Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog that The Old Hunters will come to North America on Nov. 24 as well, priced at $19.99. Players will "experience the nightmare of the hunters who once guarded Byrgenwerth's darkest secrets," the post reads.

Here's more on the story, from Sony's announcement:

Set in a nightmare world where hunters from the past are trapped forever, explore brand new stages full of dangers, rewards, and deadly beasts to overcome. You'll find multiple new outfits and weapons to add to your arsenal as well as additional magic to wield and add more variety to your combat strategy.
