Nioh is getting a PC version, which will be available on Steam starting on November 7th. PC gamers will be able to pick up the Complete Edition of the Souls-like inspired by Japanese history and mythology, including the three DLC expansions, and the special Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet.
PC gamers will soon be able to enjoy Nioh, the samurai Souls-like developed by Team Ninja. The game originally launched back in February 2017 for the PlayStation 4, and most expected that it’ll stay a PS4 exclusive. Well, that’s where we were wrong. Nioh is coming out for the PC on November 7th, 2017. You’ll be able to get it on Steam, as the Complete Edition, which will include all three DLCs: Dragon of the North, Defiant Honor, and Bloodshed’s End. As the director Fumihiko Yasuda said (via Gamespot):
Team Ninja is well aware of the fact that many gamers have been passionately asking for a PC version of Nioh. I am thrilled to announce that this massocore game will finally be available for our die-hard PC fans in Nioh: Complete Edition! I hope you all enjoy the unforgettable drama and deeply challenging Yokai battles this action-packed experience has to offer.
The PC version of Nioh will offer Movie Mode and Action Mode. The former will expand your resolution to 4K, while Action Mode will have the game running at a rock-solid 60 fps. And that’s not all; the Complete Edition on the PC comes with the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet:
The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of ‘kawari-kabuto’, a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil.
