PS4 exclusive Nioh getting a demo this month, releasing this year0 Comments
Are you ready for Nioh? I know I am, as this samurai action title was actually one of my most anticipated games for the PlayStation 3 launch window. In the end, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo obviously never released the game during the PS3's lifespan, but after a re-announcement at the latest PlayStation Experience, we're finally going to get the darn game exclusively for PlayStation 4.
Actually, it's coming out quite soon indeed. Nioh is now expected to launch in 2016, though we don't have a more specific timeframe just yet. Prior to launch, an alpha demo will be making its way out later this month. There is actually a perk to playing through the demo beyond going hands on with Nioh. If you can clear the stage in the alpha demo then you will be rewarded with The Mark of the Conqueror DLC for the full game. Players are also encouraged to take a feedback survey once they have spent some time with the demo.
So when exactly will PS4 owners be able to delve into the violent world of Nioh? The alpha demo is currently scheduled to open up from April 26 to May 5. This gives folks a little over a week (as well as an entire weekend) to sample some of what Nioh has to offer. It appears that you will not need to pre-order the game or have an active PlayStation Plus membership in order to access this demo.
