|Nioh: Last Chance Trial Begins January 21|
We’re now only three weeks away from releasing Nioh on PS4 and we can’t wait to get it into your hands. We hope you’ve all been steeling yourself for the tough battles ahead!
In case you’ve missed it, Nioh is an intricate action RPG built around deep combat. Inspired by Japanese history and legendary samurai, Nioh will see you step into the shoes of our protagonist William as he faces off against other warriors and supernatural creatures in a gruelling quest set in 16th century Japan.
You’ll need real mettle and resolve to push through Nioh’s gruelling encounters, but fear not — to prepare you for the launch on February 7, we’ve arranged one last chance for you to get some practice in.
The Last Chance Trial will be running this weekend, January 21 and 22, giving you a chance to sample an expanded version of what we showed at PlayStation Experience in December. Download the trial from PlayStation Store later today so you can pre-load and get started as soon as the Last Chance Trial activates on January 21.
For those who have the skill to make it through the Last Chance Trial, a number of extra rewards for the final game await you. Beating the Main Mission will net you the Ogress Headgear, whereas completing the Twilight Mission will give you a last chance to secure the Mark of the Conqueror and Mark of the Strong from last year’s Alpha and Beta.
To access the Ogress Headgear in the final game, you will need to keep your save data from the Last Chance Trial so don’t delete it until launch! For Mark of the Conqueror and Mark of the Strong, you will be prompted to download DLC that you’ll also need to keep on your PS4 until launch. In-game, visit shrines to receive these “Boons” and reap the rewards!
Best of luck, warriors!
