A playable Nioh demo will arrive on PlayStation 4 between April 26th and May 5th, according to the game’s developer, Team Ninja.
The game’s demo will give players a chance to try out the game’s “deep and authentic samurai combat.” Those who complete the demo will be able to download some special DLC in the full game when it is released, which is scheduled for sometime in 2016.
“In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month,” the game’s general producer, Kou Shibusawa, wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action.”
Nioh is a historical action-role playing game. Set in a time of civil war in Japan, Nioh not only incorporates classic elements such as samurai and supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore, but also offers the exhilaration of an authentic samurai sword fight straight from Team Ninja.
