'Nioh' To Add More High-Difficulty Missions In March; PvP Multi-Player Mode & First DLC Coming In April
"Nioh" has fairly more content to extend to its avid and growing fan base, free and paid alike. Developer Team Ninja is hard at work, shaping on the game's new content that will start rolling out pretty soon. Publisher Koie Tecmo shared details on the next couple of free updates and the first DLC, as well as an apology for shortages in Japan via its most recent live stream. It's stretching the period when gamers can get the free "Armor of Japans Best Warrior" costume in Japan from February 22 to March 1.
"Nioh" Detailed Updates
As reported by Gematsu, "Nioh's" developer outlined its immediate post-release support plans. On the free update front, high-difficulty missions will be slated for late March -- first in Japan. There are 10 types in all, including some that are compared to a boss rush mode. Following that will be the previously announced PvP multiplayer mode by late April.
The first "Nioh" DLC, the "Dragon of the North," will also be available sometime in April, as confirmed by Team Ninja via its Twitter account. With it are new weapon types, guardian spirits, stages, scenarios, characters, and yokai. These will be followed by two more packs. The second DLC will be called "Japan's Best Warrior" and the third "Peaceful and Tranquil." Both packs have not been dated as of yet. All three are included in the $25 season pass.
"Nioh" Worldwide Popularity
"Nioh's" popularity seems to be owed a lot to the "Dark Souls" series. However, when players get past the first hour of the game and hit the second boss, they will certainly see and feel the difference. Team Ninja's impressive action abilities take the game to a pretty diverse direction.
"Nioh" is available now for the PlayStation 4. It was released worldwide in February 2017. It was published by Koei Tecmo in Japan and internationally by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Team Ninja is encouraging fans to sharpen their blades and prepare to defy death once again. For now, we will keep everyone posted for more detailed updates.
