Don't forget to download Bloodborne's 2.69GB day one patch

Online play! Chalice Dungeons! More!

Bloodborne is out tomorrow - and with it comes a important 2.69GB day one patch.

If you pre-loaded From Software's PlayStation 4 exclusive you'll already have access to the patch. Bloodborne goes on sale tomorrow, 24th March in North America and this Friday, 27th March in the UK.

The update, which brings Bloodborne up to version 1.01, allows for online play, fixes a number of bugs, improves performance and adds the Chalice Dungeons feature.

It seems the patch also makes a few minor wording changes, according to a report on Reddit by user "Desiderati".

Apparently you can decide whether to display your character name or online name for online play, and choose whether to play online or offline at the opening of the game. It's worth noting that the servers for Bloodborne go live tomorrow.

Bloodborne's pre-load begins with a 5.04GB download alongside the day one patch, but the total pre-load download weighs in at 29.89GB. The full game requires 41GB of space on your PS4.

Not long now. We'll have an impressions piece up at 2am tomorrow morning. Why not read Aoife's Bloodborne preview while you wait?
