Bloodborne's brand new patch is not quite as exciting as its forthcoming expansion pack, but lovers of the good blood will still be excited to learn that it's available now. Weighing in at approximately 300MB – the update stacks, so you'll be sitting through a good 2.8GB of data if you're working with a fresh install – the download mostly addresses bugs and balance issues.

According to a DualShockers translation of the Asian patch notes, headline tweaks include the ability to store up to 600 Blood Vials and Quicksilver bullets, which should come in handy. You'll also be able to access the Insight bath at any time, as long as you've earned at least one Insight at any point in the past.

Other tweaks include reductions to the stamina usage of Logarius' Wheel and the Kirkhammer, as well as an increase to the effects of the Tiny Tonitrus. You'll get better prizes from the Chalice Dungeons as well, in the form of bonus Blood Echoes and Blood Stone rewards. And, of course, the developer's also fixed various minor bugs and issues.

We'll post the full English patch notes as soon as they become available. In the meantime, download the update now and let us know if you've noticed any tweaks in the comments section below.
