It will be less than 2 months until the release of Nioh 2, and the developers have revealed more information. With the beta out of the way, the game is looking better than ever, and the developers have shared their excitement with fans. A new story trailer has been released for Nioh 2, showing the hard work of the production team.

Nioh 2 is set in the Warring States period of Japan in the year 1555. A never-ending war has turned the nation into a land of chaos infested by demons, evil spirits, and much more looking to feed upon the innocents of the land.

It is amidst this war that a rogue mercenary hunting down yokai int he Mino Province appears. This demon hunter is the protagonist of the game, but he hides a terrible secret. This man is a half-breed between a human and a yokai. Shamed among the humans and unable to live among the demons, this man has sworn to live the life of the demon hunter, alone.

Things get worse when one day, the hero loses control of his yokai power when in a heated battle against a dangerous beast. Things get better when he meets a wandering merchant named Toukichiro, who sells him a “Spirit Stone.” This stone is a magic artifact that allows our hero to communicate with the yokai and regain control of his demonic half.

The lore and story of this game is layers upon layers deep. It will take hours to dig through all the subtle clues hidden among the trailers, game, and story. Fans will enjoy the level of complexity hidden among this game’s story.

The upcoming DLC and Season pass was also announced recently. Three major DLC releases are planned, with each focusing on a different storyline that pre-date the events of the game. Hours of additional gameplay are promised, and tons of new challenges will be presented to dedicated fans.

Players can expect new weapons, new combat abilities, and new characters with each DLC. Just like in the original Nioh, there will be multiple main and sub-missions found within the game.

The three DLC packs are included in the Season Pass, which is part of the Digital Deluxe Edition. You can pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition right now and gain some premium in-game items like the Demon Horde armor set and Kodama Netsuke Charm.

Players who purchase the Nioh 2 Special Edition will also receive an exclusive SteelBook case and “The Art of Nioh 2” booklet.
