Plus post-launch DLC announced.
Nioh 2

Thanks to the PlayStation Blog, we have some new information to share concerning Nioh 2 today. This includes a new story focused trailer, seen at the bottom here, and word on what to expect from the team after the game launches.

Nioh 2 will utilize a Season Pass for post-launch content. Obviously you can still buy the content separately, but this is what will be included if you do decide to buy it all at once. There will be three major pieces of DLC released. Each will focus on a different story and each will take place before the events of Nioh 2. The team promises that this content will add in hours of additional gameplay and "plenty of challenge" for players.

This DLC will also add in new weapons, new combat abilities, new characters, new main missions, and new sub-missions. All of this is included in the Season Pass. It's also included in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. The Digital Deluxe Edition also includes access to the Demon Horde armor set and Kodama Netsuke Charm. A physical Special Edition gets all of that plus a special SteelBook case and "The Art of Nioh 2" booklet.

At present, Nioh 2 is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4. It could be a situation like the first Nioh where it shows up on PC some months later. However, there has not even been a whisper of a PC release yet.

[A war-torn realm haunted by evil spirits
It is the Warring States period in Japan. The year is 1555. Never-ending warfare has transformed the nation into a land of chaos infested by demonic yokai, evil spirits who feed upon their victims.

It is in this setting of relentless mayhem that we meet our protagonist, a rogue mercenary hunting down yokai in the Mino Province. This demon hunter hides a terrible secret: they are a half-breed, the orphan offspring of both human and yokai blood. Unable to find a place amongst mankind, our demon hunter journeys alone.

Calamity strikes one day as our protagonist loses control of their own yokai power while battling against a ferocious fiend. However, the dire situation is remedied by a wandering merchant by the name of Toukichiro who sells strange “Spirit Stones”; magic—imbued artifacts that can help the wielder communicate with yokai spirits. Our demon hunter regains control of their demonic persona.

From there on, the two decide to combine their abilities and set out together to find more of the powerful Spirit Stones, their quest being funded by an influential warlord to track down the artifacts to ensure they’re reserved for proper use.

Their mission is cut short by an attack from someone – or something – also seeking the stones. They escape thanks to the help of a yokai huntswoman named Mumyo, and the three find refuge in the Owari Province, eventually ending up in the service of the great Oda Nobunaga.

But their future plans will be short-lived and they will once more come face to face with diabolical forces who also seek the remaining Spirit Stones. The stage is set for this epic saga of our half-breed yokai hunter- “Hideyoshi”.
