Team Ninja has released a Beta test for its upcoming Nioh on PS4. You can download it now here or from your PS4 on the PS store.
Multiple DLC unlockables will be rewarded to gamers dedicated enough to complete certain stages in the game. By clearing ‘Isle of Demons’ the DLC titled The Mark of the Conqueror will be unlocked whereas clearing the new stage ‘Deep in the Shadows’ will unlock The Mark of the Warrior DLC. The former DLC was unlocked by completing the Alpha Team Ninja released back in April of this year so its unclear whether any new rewards will be received but both downloads are said to entitle you to some cool rewards when the final game releases later this year.
The Beta will only last 2 weeks and is available from TODAY till 9/26/2016 and available online only. Whether that means Playstation Plus is required or not was not specified but in the terms Online multiplayer requires Playstation Plus. If that means PvP or Coop is enabled in the demo is another story. The previous Alpha was downloaded more than 850,000 times and valuable feedback was interpreted for this new Beta.
2 new stages have been added to the demo including a new Dojo stage featuring a training session to learn the basics of Nioh’s Samurai combat system as well as a yet-to-be-announced stage. Additionally new weapons are available including a selection of new Katana, spears, axes and hammers. Players will be able to add weapons that fit for different gameplay styles.
Nioh is currently slated for release in 2016.
