The former PlayStation 4 exclusive is making its way over to Steam.
Critically acclaimed Souls-like RPG Nioh will be making its way over to PC through Steam on November 7, Koei Tecmo announced today via press release. The former PlayStation 4 exclusive will release as Nioh: Complete Edition and will include all the game’s DLC packages: Dragon of the North, Defiant Honor, and Bloodshed’s End.
Additionally, the game’s Steam page opened today, detailing the system players will need to conform to the minimum specs for the game. As fans can tell, Nioh is a fairly demanding title, requiring a GTX 780 and a fairly high-spec PC just to run. This being said, Nioh on Steam will include an action mode, which ensures a stable 60 FPS, and a movie mode, which supports resolution up to 4K.
Game director Fumihiko Yasuda commented on Nioh’s transition to PC, stating “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 masocore 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.”
In addition to all of the game’s previously released content, the title’s Steam release will include all seven weapon types, ninjutsu, and onmyo magic spells available from the start. It will also feature a new helmet called the Dharmachakra Kabut, which has a valve affixed to the front in reference to the company of the same name. An image of it can be found below:
