Koei Tecmo America has announced the launch of the highly anticipated Alpha Demo for the Samurai, Action-RPG Nioh, developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4. For a limited-time demo, only available to play and download from the PlayStation Store from now until May 5th.
Between April 26th and May 5th, gamers have a chance to experience the intense combat of Nioh with access to two unique stages.
Upon coming ashore a small island near the village of Usuki, in the first stage the player encounters the remains of a fishing village set aflame by a mysterious invasion. In the following stage, demonic beings from the Yokai realm run rampant in Dazaifu, which has controlled western regions since ancient times.
The demo will give players unique challenges meant to heighten their sense of accomplishment. To deal with the enemy threat you are able to test out three close-combat weapon classes, the spear, the axe, and the deadly katana, allowing them to figure out which best fits their playstyle.
All players who complete at least one stage of the demo will receive ‘The Mark of the Conqueror’ DLC which includes in-game content at launch, exclusive to this DLC.
