No, this is not a misleading thread. Visit this twitter link and read for yourself. The hype is real, BB is going to get more content :twisted:

Breaking news for all Bloodborne fans! Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios – Sony Computer Entertainment, has revealed in a tweet alongside Masaaki Yamigawa that Bloodborne will be receiving special DLC treatment later this year via an EXPANSION!

Hyping intensifies for fans and for the curious, allongside the endless debate over cut content, rushed products and planned DLC. On this post, however, we would like to focus on what you think the Expansion will be about! What\’s your favorite theory? What would you like to see?...

Agreed. Fixes are great and very much needed but when the word "expansion" is bought up, it better be an actual expansion :bounce:

Yep. I've bought all DLC's from them so far.
As long as they keep churning out quality content I'll keep shelling out cash.

Now SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!! :laughing:

1. Its not content withheld from the game, they claim its an expansion like how the shivering isles was an expansion. plus they said we would get info about it later this year that could be in November or December.

2. We got a finished game, Bloodborne feels pretty complete, especially compared to dark souls 2. I mean I am not going to complain because I dont mind extra content. I am happy with the thoughts of new trick weapons that could add some extra variety to builds.

If this Expansion comes out a year from know its definitely not some tacked on DLC, now you might have a point if we get it a month or 2 from now but until it comes out you can't say much of anything. You can't know with 100% certainty its content that was withheld from us. you dont work for fromsoft and should withhold any bitterness until we get more info.

Another thing you dont have to get this expansion, if you dont want it.

Yo, this is an expansion. Not DLC. Maybe the lingo for expansions has been misrepresented by other game companies, but FROM Software has a solid history of producing quality content, and I can say without any uncertainty that Bloodborne plays like the full package. We've got 2-3 dozen bosses, multiple takes on weaponry, and a stellar game that allows for awesome multiplayer content.

"o look moar content has been withheld frum us" is simply NOT TRUE.

It really doesn't feel complete to me though. It feels like a shallow game with tons of chalices tacked on to make it feel longer. The low amount of weapons is also another thing I really dont like, but thats just me. Fromsoft games (AC, Kings Field, etc) are fun partly because of the large expanse of weapons available to you and how you can mismatch your character around.

DS2 felt incomplete because it was, and we still had item and weapon movesets (Bone fist, Majestic GS) still in the game files on day 1 release. I'd say Bloodborne is missing things as well, mainly an explaination and use for Beasthood stat other than a small boost in damage, as well as people who can transform/de-transform at will, such as the man in Forbidden Woods.

Basically Fromsoft has a habit of with holding gameplay from us and I'm gonna take this news with a grain of salt. I wouldnt doubt if, even after what ENB has told us directly from Fromsoft, there is some kind of hidden thing about Beasthood not released until the expansion.
