The next free updates are as follows:

  • Late April – PvP implemented.

The first downloadable content, “Dragon of The North,” will launch in late April and add the following:

  • New weapon types
  • New scenarios
  • New characters
  • New guardian spirits
  • New yokai
  • New stages

The second downloadable content will be called “Japan’s Best Warrior,” and the third, “Peaceful and Tranquil.”

Koei Tecmo also announced that, as an apology for shortages of the game in Japan, they’re extending the period which users can obtain the free “Armor of Japan’s Best Warrior” costume in Japan from February 22 to March 1.

Nioh is available now for PlayStation 4.
