I check the time to beat and notice that Bloodborne: The old hunters edition only takes less than 10h to beat while the standard takes more than 30h to beat. So does Bloodborne: The old hunters edition include the standard edition? I heard that this game is good so I want to try it out. Thanks

No, 'The Old Hunters' is DLC and requires already owning the base game to be able to play.

The 10 hours referenced in the time to beat is for the 'The Old Hunters' DLC only.

If you want to buy both the main game and the DLC in one package you need to get the 'Game of the Year' Edition.

Edit: Further to Kodama's comment, it seems that 'The Old Hunters Edition' is an Asian region special edition that includes the base game, DLC, soundtrack and strategy guide. This is a physical version of the game, not to be confused with 'The Old Hunters' which is a digital only DLC referenced above.

    I see. I also saw Game of the Year edition but I thought that's The Old Hunters edition with different title for European market. Thanks for the info. Commented Feb 19, 2017 at 10:00

    @TrươngVănHọc I don't think this answer is right for you. "The Old Hunters Edition" is the Asian name for the "Game of the Year Edition". I take it from your name that you are from Vietnam? If so, the "Old Hunters Edition" (note it has to have the word "Edition" in it) should include both the main game and the DLC. Where did you see the "10h to beat" you mentioned in your question and where did you try to buy the game?

    @Colin I'm sorry to correct you again, but the "Old Hunters Edition" really is just the GotY name in Asia. It's not just the physical edition. In Japan the GotY edition got a physical collector's release including the things you mentioned, but there is also a regular one and the digital GotY is called "Old Hunters Edition" as well, being the game and DLC like the Western version. Here is an example from the Thailand store (must be logged out to see it): store.playstation.com/#!/en-th/games/…

    Since you're buying it in Asia, if you buy "The Old Hunters Edition" it includes both Bloodborne and DLC. If you buy "The Old Hunters" online as DLC (without the word "Edition") it's only the DLC and requires the base game to play. The DLC alone is only available online, not on disc. If you buy "The Old Hunters Edition" in retail or digitally, it should include both Bloodborne and DLC. If it has "Edition" in the name it includes both. If you see a "Game of the Year Edition" somewhere, it includes both as well, but it will probably a Western import, unless Vietnam is an exception in Asia.

    @TrươngVănHọc Yes, that's usually the way it is here in Europe. I don't know Guilty Gear and maybe it's different in Vietnam, but games in boxes are normally on disc and may include codes for additional DLC to download, but the base game is on disc. There are a few exceptions, but if the game is not on disc and there is only a download code inside, it will say so on the box. There is never a disc that only has DLC on it for which you would need a game that is not also on the disc.
