Nioh Beta Demo Detailed, Gamescom 2016 Trailer
Koei Tecmo has released a new trailer for Team Ninja’s upcoming action RPG, Nioh, coming to the PS4 sometime this year. The video comes as a first course for players anxiously awaiting the beta demo next Tuesday, August 23rd.
It’s also worth noting that this upcoming beta test will also grant folks another chance to obtain the new Mark of the Conqueror DLC, as well as the Mark of the Strong DLC.
If you aren’t into the whole DLC stuff, the upcoming beta will bring with it some new challenges regarding the first stage, as well as a Training Dojo to help new players out with the Katana and the game’s learning curve. The dojo will be accessible right from the beginning of the demo.
Nioh is in development exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Here’s the full overview of the demo, via Koei Tecmo:
“Following the overwhelming success of the Alpha Demo in April—as well as the community’s generous feedback—the Nioh Beta Demo will incorporate a number of gameplay changes made with fans in mind, which will be immediately noticeable upon their return to the village of Usuki. This first stage of the demo will offer new challenges and the opportunity to once again fight for the mysterious Mark of the Conqueror DLC. Warriors who conquered Usuki and procured the DLC during the Alpha Demo won’t be left wanting, however, as they will receive a set of weapons and more starting money. These champions will also have the opportunity to play through the new Nakatsu stage without having to clear Usuki again.
The new Nakatsu stage leads protagonist William along a treacherous mountain path to a deep cave, where he must prevail against human and supernatural enemies alike—including the seductive Hinoenma, a dangerous Yokai under the guise of a beautiful woman. Defeating the Nakatsu stage will award players with the Mark of the Strong DLC, which will be available when the game launches.
The experience gained from the trials of Usuki and Nakatsu should equip the most skilled players for an even more challenging undertaking: the Twilight mission. In this arduous mission, players can re-visit Usuki or Nakatsu, battle against stronger enemies and new fearsome creatures, and earn highly-valued items.
The Beta Demo will also feature a selection of new weapons, including the long-range hand cannon rifle and a fresh selection of Katanas (including dual-wielded Katanas), Spears, Axes and Hammers which will provide new options to suit any gameplay style. In addition, players will get a taste of Onmyo magic and Ninjutsu elements of combat, which add bonuses to William’s attack and can invoke special techniques to provide various effects.
Lastly, to better prepare players for the trials that await, a Training Dojo has been added to the demo. This tutorial stage has been implemented to teach newcomers how to fight with a katana, the most basic yet refined of weapon choices, and how to navigate through the game. The Training Dojo will be available from the beginning of the demo.”
