Nioh Defiant Honor DLC Gameplay
The video gives a look at the new location you’ll be exploring including its new weapon, NPCs and culminates with a boss fight. At the end of the stream, just after the 1:10 mark, you can see the new trailer for the DLC. Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
Check out a wonderful assortment of screenshots from the DLC:
Also in the stream we learned about the third and final piece of DLC for Nioh, which will be titled Genna Enbu (official English title pending). They did not reveal any specific information regarding the content but we can anticipate a similar package to what we’ve seen so far, which includes new missions and bosses to take on during actual historical events in the Sengoku period of Japan’s history.
Defiant Honor releases tomorrow July 25th for the PS4 exclusively. Thoughts on the gameplay and the upcoming final DLC? Let us know in the comments and keep checking back with us for everything Nioh related.
