Team Ninja’s Tom Lee has revealed post-launch plans for Nioh 2, which includes information about how the recent beta shaped gameplay elements and some brand-new story content with the latest trailer.
Set in the Warring States period in Japan (1555 A.D.), fans will explore a land that has been thrown into chaos, one where demonic yokai freely roam while locals attempt to survive the chaos that has consumed the Mino Province. As a part of your adventure as a demon hunter (A half-breed that is both human and yokai), you will unleash powerful spells, take on enemies of unimaginable proportions while working with those around you.
Your goal? To work with Toukichiro, a vendor who sells strange “Spirit Stones” and ensure that others don’t use them for the wrong purpose by any means. You’ll even meet famed characters such as Hideyoshi and Oda Nobunaga. Since their stories will be intertwined with your characters, DLC will find itself getting released in three different pieces.
Nioh 2 DLC will feature new weapons, combat abilities, and brand-new characters with their respective DLCs
As the DLC will be released in three separate stages, Nioh 2 will have a lot to offer, which includes multiple min story missions and sub-missions to accompany them. The Season Pass will be available with both the Digital Deluxe and the physical Nioh 2 Deluxe Edition of the game.
The Deluxe Edition will also include the main game, DLC, as well as the Demon Horde armor set alongside the Kodama Netsuke Charm. There’s also that Steelbook and the Art of Nioh 2 promotional booklet that you can own with the purchase of the Nioh 2 Special Edition.
Nioh 2 launches on March 13th, 2020
You can pre-order Nioh 2 today on the PlayStation Store or at a participating retailer. If you plan on getting the Special Edition, it is worth noting that supplies are limited and will be available at any and all participating retailers.
