Nioh Bloodshed’s End, Closing The Curtains On The Sengoku Jidai!
This last Nioh DLC will wrap up William’s long and arduous journey through the warring states period of Japan.
The upcoming Blooshed’s End DLC will feature:
- New Missions
- A New Yokai
- A New Guardian Spirit
- A New Difficulty Level
In addition to all of those, a new mode called “The Abyss” will be included. It is describe as where “the strongest warriors can test their skills in a perpetual battleground.”
You can read the statement made by the Creative Director for the DLC in detail, below:
I hope you all had a chance this summer to experience the legendary battles of our latest Nioh DLC, Defiant Honor!
In order to keep the excitement alive, we’ve been hard at work on Nioh’s final DLC. It’s called Bloodshed’s End and it’s a perfect way to conclude the final chapter of the bloody Sengoku period.
Our latest adventure picks up where we left off in Defiant Honor. The Siege of Osaka’s winter campaign was put to an end by a peace negotiation between Toyotomi and Tokugawa.
However, conditions were harsh as Osaka Castle lost its secondary and tertiary enclosures, as well as its inner and outer moats, leaving just the main enclosure for the defeated.
Inevitably, this situation led to an uprising and another war broke out just months after the winter campaign. This is the final phase of the Sengoku-era, and the end of William’s journey.
Other than additional main missions, sub missions and Twilight missions, one of the most interesting features of Bloodshed’s End is a new mode called The Abyss. Here, the strongest warriors can test their skills in a perpetual battleground.
This new mode offers epic battles and unique challenges for the most skilled players. We’ll have more to reveal on this mode before launch.
As always, this DLC will provide you with the usual suspects to complete your Nioh experience — new Yokai, new characters, a new difficulty level and new Guardian Spirits.
You have fought well against insurmountable odds, slain countless deadly Yokai, defied death again and again… but there remains one more brutal trial. I hope you will celebrate the final chapter of the remarkable Sengoku era with Bloodshed’s End.
There’s something for every samurai here, and a few surprises along the way. So jump back into the action, prepare your weapons and keep your Ki levels in check! This will be one epic voyage into hell and back.
