Newest story DLC arrives on July 25th.
Team Ninja’s Nioh received some new gameplay for the Defiant Honor DLC which is releasing on July 25th. As part of a recent stream with directors Fumihiko Yasuda and Yosuke Hayashi (start here for the actual gameplay), we got to see the new levels and tonfa weapon in action. Just be warned that there are spoilers, especially when it comes to the boss battle.
However, perhaps the bigger announcement is the upcoming third DLC for the game. It’s called “Genna Enbu” or “Genna Armistice”, which takes place in the Sengoku Era where civil war is pretty common place. As the final DLC for the game, it will likely see William’s story come to a close. How that will happen and under what circumstance remains to be seen but new enemies, locations and much more are expected.
As for Defiant Honor, it will be out tomorrow exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It sees Sanada Yukimura preparing to fight against the Tokugawa clan’s forces outside of Osaka Castle as tensions mount between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi. William teams up with Date Masamune of the Tokugawa to face Sanada and find Maria. The setting is Winter and you honestly can’t get any more dramatic than that.
