Game companies have recently made a habit of celebrating milestone achievements and giving away free content. Koei Tecmo is combining the two due to the popularity of Nioh.
Koei Tecmo recently announced (credit to Siliconera for translating the post) that the game surpassed one million sales. As a thank you gift, Koei Tecmo added “Golden Nioh Armor” to Patch 1.04. The armor is a golden reskin of the pre-order exclusive “Nioh Incarnate” set, which makes the gift even more thoughtful. To obtain the golden armor, players need only visit a shrine and select the armor from the boons menu. Players can also visit the blacksmith to reroll or increase the armor’s stats.
Nioh has received favorable reviews for its story and tough-but-fair combat. The game sets itself apart from other Souls-like games with its combat stances. These stances create a brand new level of tactical fighting. Certain weapon and stance combinations are suited to 1v1 combat while others are more efficient at fighting off several enemies at once. Some creatures require quick hit-and-run tactics while others can be taken down with guard-crushing blows. Players need to learn the advantages and disadvantages of each stance if they want to win the game.
Nioh is currently available on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 4 Pro.
