Nioh is an action role-playing game developed for PlayStation 4 by Team Ninja. The game was released worldwide just this month. Koei Tecmo published the game in Japan while Sony Interactive Entertained published the game internationally. Nioh is set in a fictionalized version of the Sengoku Jidai period or age of the warring states in Japan during the 1600s.
Nioh revolves around defeating monsters and navigating levels that have infested an area. Japan was in the midst of a civil war. William, a sailor who was in pursuit of an enemy, arrives in Japan and was enlisted to serve under Tokugawa Ieyasu to defeat demons called yokais that flourishes in the chaos of war.
Koei Tecmo Games has recently announced that the popular title Nioh is getting a player-versus-player and a set of high-difficulty missions during a recent livestream. The stream stated that the high difficulty missions will be arriving in late March. In late April, a PvP mode will be introduced to the game. Koei Tecmo said that there will be 10 types of high-difficulty missions some of which will feel like boss rushes.
The PvP launch will be launched about the same time as the first set of DLC will be scheduled to land. The new DLC will be called Dragon of Tohoku. New weapon types, characters, scenarios and stages will be included in the new module. Additional yokai and guardian spirits will also be included. The followup DLC will be called Japan’s Best Warrior and Peaceful and Tranquil. When Nioh was released, the game scored very well on the reviews of several outlets, as reported by Polygon.
Koei Techmo has also announced that as a way to apologize for the shortages of the game in Japan, the game company will be giving players some compensation. Koei Techmo will be extending the period for which users can obtain the free Armor of the Japan’s Best Warrior costume in Japan. This will run from Feb. 22 to March 1, as published by Gematsu.
