New Bloodborne Patch Now Live

Sony released the 1.04 patch for Bloodborne yesterday, and it includes quite a few tweaks and additions to the action RPG.

The two most important changes pertain to the password and storage systems. The patch allows friends to join each other with password matchmaking regardless of level. As for storage, players can now put away 600 blood vials and quicksilver bullets. The previous limit was 99.
