Bloodborne patch fixes game-breaking bug and item dupe exploit

Bloodborne's latest patch fixes a game-breaking bug as well as an item dupe exploit, among other things.


The hotfix Sony and From Software announced would be released for Bloodborne to combat a potential progression-breaking bug has officially been released.

In addition to the progression bug, Bloodborne version 1.02 also squashes a number of other unspecified bugs, one of which was the item duping exploit. Unfortunately, this patch isn’t the one players have been waiting for that would hopefully speed up the game’s brutally long loading times. Sony says that patch is still being worked on, although no release date has been announced yet.

If you’re unaware of what the progression bug was, it involved using either the Small Resonant Bell or Sinister Resonant Bell in the Forbidden Woods. Doing so would cause Hunters to not be able to receive the Lunarium Key after completing a number of objectives within the area. Now that version 1.02 has been released, you should be able to invite co-op partners or attempt to murder random Hunters at your leisure.
