Nioh is getting harder missions and PvP

Free updates coming in March and April, DLC to follow

Nioh Team Ninja
Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

Nioh is getting high-difficulty missions and a player-versus-player, Koei Tecmo Games announced during a recent livestream.

The stream, translated and distilled by Gematsu, said that high-difficulty missions would arrive in late March. There will be 10 types, some of which will feel like boss rushes. In late April a PvP mode will be added.

That’s about the same time as the first set of DLC will land. Called Dragon of Tohoku, the module will include new weapon types, new scenarios, characters and stages as well as additional guardian spirits and yokai. The follow on DLC will be called Japan’s Best Warrior and Peaceful and Tranquil.

Nioh reviewed very well at multiple outlets, including here at Polygon, where two of our reviewers put in more than 100 hours with the game. You can learn more about how that review was created in the latest episode of Quality Control, embedded below and available on iTunes.
