Free PvP Coming Post Launch
Like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, one can summon the spirits of other players in Nioh to aid in battle. What about PvP against said players, potentially invading their worlds and acting all gankish? Team Ninja confirmed that PvP will be added to the game after launch though whether its arena-style combat or invasion-style a la Dark Souls remains to be seen.
