Hardcore action title Nioh coming to PC

Publisher Koei Tecmo has announced that dark fantasy action RPG, Nioh, will be coming to the PC in the form of Nioh: Complete Edition.

This edition will include the original Nioh and all of the three DLC expansions, Dragon of the North, Defiant Honour, and Bloodshed’s End. It is set to be released on Steam on November 7th.

The original Nioh released as a PlayStation exclusive in February this year to critical acclaim, achieving a Metacritic score of 88.

“Team Ninja is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of Nioh,” said the game’s director, Fumihiko Yasuda. “I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition.”

The digital-only Complete Edition will be able to be experienced in 4K resolution in the new Movie Mode or at a stable 60fps in Action Mode. This PC version of the game will also feature the new mode and 'ultimate challenge', The Abyss, which is playable upon completion of the core game and supports the player’s ability to “summon up to two other visitors to overcome the dangers that lurk therein.”

In celebration of Nioh: Complete Edition’s release on Steam, Team Ninja has created an exclusive Steam-themed helmet, the “Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet”, to be available in-game.

Nioh’s difficult third-person combat-based gameplay follows the Demon and Dark Souls’ formula, a formula which has become very popular in recent years, and can be seen echoed in other titles such as Eitr, The Surge, Immortal, Dark Maus, and Salt and Sanctuary.

Despite coming out in 2017, Nioh started development all the way back in 2004.
