If you’ve played the Last Chance trial or the open beta of Nioh 2, you can transfer your character from them into the main game. This will only carry over your appearance – any progress you’ve made will be lost, and you’ll still have to start from the beginning. On the upside, you won’t have to waste time carefully customizing your character again. If you’re wondering how this whole deal works, this guide will show you how to transfer character from last chance trial & open beta into Nioh 2.
How to transfer character from Last Chance trial & open beta to Nioh 2?
There are two ways you can go about transferring your character’s appearance into the full game. If you’re just starting and have the save data from one of the tests, the game will ask you whether you’d like to use that data. Say yes, then start a new game and you’ll have your old character back. Simple as that.
If you don’t have the old save data, you can use a character code as well. However, that would mean you would have to have your old trial character’s code written down somewhere. If you do, you can even transfer your old character if you’ve already started playing. There’s a way to change your character’s appearance in camp, between missions. When you’re at the character creation screen, press the touchpad on PS4 to open up the Saving and Additional Options menu.
Once you’re there, you’ll find an option to input a character creation code, which is kind of like a password that stores all the relevant data about the character’s look – their skin tone, the color of their hair, marks, scars, tattoos and such. It’s a long code, so make sure you double-check before proceeding.
Nioh 2 doesn't pull any punches, so you might get stuck before you've even begun playing. We've written a guide to help you choose your starting weapon and guardian spirit, and another that shows how to reset skills if you invest in the wrong ones. Once you've dug in, you'll probably want to know how to unlock onmyo magic & ninja proficiency skills, or how to change and use Yokai Shift forms. Getting more skill points is always a priority, which is why we've written about locks of hair locations. If you're hunting rare soul cores, you'll probably want to know about the Mujina locations - finding them is tricky.
