If you don't know what a "Nioh" is, Sony has also revealed the original game will be free to PlayStation Plus members from November 5. Coming in early 2020, Nioh 2 from Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo, is a combat-focused Souls-like set in the Sengoku period, while taking cues from Akira Kurasawa's classics such as Yojimbo and Seven Samurai.
From March 13, 2020 the game will release globally while a new beta kicks off for a short stint from November 1 through to November 10. Here's the official skinny:
Master the art of the samurai in this brutal masocore RPG… for death is coming.
Journey to 1555 Japan, a country gripped in endless warfare where monsters and evil spirits stalk a land of natural beauty and menacing peril.
Hunt down your enemies as a rogue mercenary wielding the supernatural powers of the mythical Yokai.
Can you survive the treacherous Sengoku era and the new and terrifying Dark Realm?
Discover deadly weapons and skills in a revamped combat system.
Join friends online in multiplayer modes: summon allies to your aid in Visitors or play completed levels together in Expeditions.
