There's still two months left in the year 2015, but Sony is apparently confident enough to grant (opens in new tab) "Game of the Year" to its exclusive monster-slaying simulator Bloodborne (opens in new tab). The From Software-developed title is getting a GOTY edition release in Europe on November 27, which will include the base game and The Old Hunters expansion, which releases on November 24.
The Old Hunters takes place in a nightmare world where Hunters of Yharnam's past are trapped forever. It will feature new weapons, gear, locations and enemies, but (as far as I know) no time-travel devices that will transport players to 2016. So really, it's less "Game of the Year" and more "complete" or "definitive" edition.
Given Bloodborne's prominence and well-earned praise, I wouldn't be surprised to see it eventually earn an actual Game of the Year award - it's just that announcing it in October seems a bit premature.
