KOEI TECMO Europe today announced that its highly-anticipated samurai action RPG, Nioh, will receive a second downloadable demo exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Following the overwhelming success of the Alpha Demo in April—during which more than 850,000 players downloaded Nioh and experienced the game’s intense and compelling gameplay for the first time—the second demo is currently planned for launch in August, with more information on its contents and exact release date to be announced at a later time.
KOEI TECMO Europe has also released a gripping new trailer alongside a choice selection of assets that reveal a variety of captivating locations, unusual mythical creatures, sinister enemies, and mysterious allies that cross paths with the game’s enigmatic blonde-haired protagonist, William. The short video provides a further glimpse into a world enveloped in mystery and mysticism, hinting at William’s powers and motives as he sets out on a treacherous path that takes him to the far end of the world – to a land of exotic islands torn by civil war and demonic supernatural threats.
A demo of Nioh featuring brand new content will be present at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 in Los Angeles from the 14th to the 16th June with more of what everyone loved about the recent Alpha Demo on PlayStation 4: more high-intensity combat, new weapons, never before seen characters, deadlier enemies and a whole lot of challenging gameplay. All Alpha Demo content will be available for those who have never tried the title.
