Koei Tecmo has released a new trailer for Team Ninja’s upcoming action RPG, Nioh, coming to the PS4 sometime this year. The video comes as a first course for players anxiously awaiting the beta demo next Tuesday, August 23rd. Check out the action packed 2 minutes in the video above.
Players will again have a chance to tackle the first stage from the alpha demo with a chance to earn the Mark of the Conqueror DLC. Those who cleared it in the alpha get a head start in the beta with new weapons and extra money and can jump into the new Nakatsu stage right away. Those who complete the Nakatsu stage will earn a new DLC, Mark of the Strong. Afterwards, the Twilight Mission comes available which lets players tackle either of the stages on a much more challenging difficulty with stronger enemies, new creatures and new rare items to earn. The demo will feature new weapons, onmyo magic and ninjutsu as well as a training dojo available from the start.
Now if a new trailer and beta info isn’t enough for you, it’s gallery time:
If you didn’t get a chance to play through the alpha demo, check out our impressions from our time with it. We also had an opportunity to sit down with lead director Fumihiko Yasuda during E3 for a revealing interview that gave us some answers on what to expect from weapons, armor, the world, and more. We’ll be all over the beta when it drops next week, so keep checking back for more on Nioh. Check out the trailer and head down to the comments to let us know what you think.
