Generally speaking, some basic troubleshooting tips should always help you resolve whatever issue you are facing with the PC version of any game. If you are running into problems, maybe first attempt the following steps, and if they don’t work out, look into some of the more specific fixes we have below.

  • Make sure the drivers on your PC are updated
  • If you have two GPUs, make sure you are using the discrete GPU instead of the integrated one
  • Set Nioh‘ priority to High in the Task Manager Turn off any background programs, including firewalls, chat clients, video recorders, and overlays
  • Try lowering visual settings on the game to see if that improves game performance
  • Make sure you have Windows updated before you attempt to play Nioh.


Until a fix comes, just play the game in windowed or borderless windowed mode


  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel and select “Adjust desktop size and position”
  • Set the scaling option to the Aspect Ratio
  • Select GPU for “Perform Scaling on” and select the “Override the scaling mode set by games and programs”.
  • Launch the game in 4K from Steam


Again, run the game in windowed mode.

Note: Given that the wide range of PC hardware out there, the fixes mentioned here may or may not work for you. But it’s worth giving them a shot since these have worked for players who own the PC version of the game.
