Patch 1.09 for Bloodborne. It was released on December 21 2015.

Changes to Insight Shop
- The necessary amount of Insight to trade for Blood Stone Chunk has been changed from 30 to 20.
- Trading for the Blood Rock is now possible. 60 pieces of Insight are required.
- A certain portion of the main game must been cleared in order to access the Blood Rock. (you must have defeated Mergo's Wet Nurse)
- You can trade for the Blood Rocks like normal in NG+ (no need to defeat the boss again)
Several other fixes and adjustments have been made.
- Whirligig Saw L2 stun seem to be less; *doesnt seem to stun and damage was changed, perhaps the stun against bosses?*
- Boom Hammer moveset uses less stamina; needs to be tested. Didnt see any changes to it*
- Kos Parasite 2hand jump attack stamina consumption was lowered. Can do 2 with 108 stamina
- Transformed Holy Moonlight Sword double backstab no longer seems to work. The second hit after the charged R2 makes enemies suddenly face you. Tested on the Nightmare Executioners in Hunter's Nightmare, along with the pig and sightseeing mage in Mergo's Loft: Middle. < Just backstabbed a hunters nightmare cannon giant, it still works
- *Needs testing* It is possible that in this patch, or even an earlier patch, frenzy buildup has been modified to take percentage damage from your total CURRENT health, instead of your normal total health. This now means that co-operators and confederates can survive frenzy if it activates (this MAY have been possible before, however I always died at full health to frenzy if I was summoned until recently (1st of january 2016 was the first time I noticed this change)). *Partially tested* I went to the lighthouse hut with full health, ran up to a nightmare doll, let it frenzy me, losing about 80% health (as normal). I used one blood vial (so I wouldn't die if it got a hit before re-frenzying me), got frenzied again and died. Maybe it considers altered health like cooperators have (I don't co-op, so I won't be testing that)? Now that I think about it that's probably what you meant by "current" health, but this should still help clarify.
Patch 1.08 for Bloodborne. It was released on December 01 2015.
The emergency server maintenance which occurred from yesterday (1-Dec, Tues, around 15:00) has been completed.
Also in regards to the issues like NPC survivor state not handed over properly which occurred in the previous update, we have provided a latest update (1.08) where such issues have been fixed.
(Prior to 1.08 Old Hunters summoned with the Old hunter bell would would not display "Hunter has died" notification if they were killed outside of your field of view, this is what the fix is referring to, the awkward wording is probably due to a direct translation from Japanese)
We are deeply sorry to cause such inconvenience.
Please apply the latest update (1.08) and enjoy playing "Bloodborne".
Patch 1.07 for Bloodborne. It was released on November 20th.
- New Covenant : The League
This is the confederate covenant of hunters associated with The League. You may meet Valtr (ヴァルトール) and join The League at the Forbidden Woods, in the hut that must be unlocked as a shortcut next to the first lamp.
