KOEI TECMO America today announced that its highly-anticipated samurai action RPG, Nioh, will receive a second downloadable demo exclusively for the PS4. Following the overwhelming success of the Alpha Demo in AprilÃ¢â‚¬â€during which more than 850,000 players downloaded Nioh and experienced the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s intense and compelling gameplay for the first timeÃ¢â‚¬â€the second demo is currently planned for launch in August, with more information on its contents and exact release date to be announced at a later time.
KOEI TECMO America has also released a gripping new trailer alongside a choice selection of assets that reveal a variety of captivating locations, unusual mythical creatures, sinister enemies, and mysterious allies that cross paths with the gameÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s enigmatic blonde-haired protagonist, William. The short video provides a further glimpse into a world enveloped in mystery and mysticism, hinting at WilliamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s powers and motives as he sets out on a treacherous path that takes him to the far end of the world Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to a land of exotic islands torn by civil war and demonic supernatural threats.
A demo of Nioh featuring brand new content will be present at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 in Los Angeles from June 14 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 16 with more of what everyone loved about the recent Alpha Demo on PlayStation 4: more high-intensity combat, new weapons, never before seen characters, deadlier enemies and a whole lot of challenging gameplay.
In the dark, fantasy action RPG Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Players will face off against other samurai in epic sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samuraiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s skills, patience, and strategy. Nioh not only incorporates iconic elements from Japanese folklore such as samurai and supernatural creaturesÃ¢â‚¬â€the game also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team NINJA. Nioh is guaranteed to challenge players in a way that makes every mission feel earned and their accomplishments worthwhile.
Scheduled for launch in 2016, Nioh is in development exclusively for the PS4
