Nioh Gamescom Gameplay Trailer Shows Off Upcoming Beta Demo

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.

    "Defy Death"

    I like it! That was a really good trailer by the way, got me hyped! \0/

    I love the Defy Death tagline. It gives homage to the inspiration of the Souls series, but also defines itself as something completely different and fresh, which it is and is a cheeky little jab at the overdone prepare to die marketing.

    I only just got my PS4 about two months ago after making the switch from X1 , so I just missed out on checking out the Beta. Heard some good things from a close friend so I´m glad there´s a new demo coming up. :bounce:

    Hey, Ziko, welcome to the PlayStation Nation. I thought you Europeans didn’t buy Xboxes? While almost all so-called triple A games are multi-plat, there are still many console exclusive games and for my tastes the huge range of JRPGs and Japanese-developed games are why I prefer PlayStation. And the frequent quirky, or unique niche games like Journey, a masterpiece.

    The alpha for Nioh was great. Fun, interesting, difficult and I didn’t experience a single glitch. The beta should be fantastic. I will tear myself from No Man’s Sky for the time-limited Nioh beta.
