Nioh 2 launched just a few months ago, but Team Ninja is far from done with the bigger, shinier, and better Nioh sequel. Today’s Nioh 2 patch 1.09 introduces the first big Nioh 2 update and photo mode, and Team Ninja says there’s much more to come over the summer.

Nioh 2 patch 1.09 brings Photo Mode to Nioh 2. There’s a ton of customization options here, including gradation, image exposure, filters, and lighting adjustments, not unlike Ghost of Tsushima‘s photo mode we recently learned about (but you can’t pet the yokai in Nioh 2).

The patch also makes nine new quests available, which Team NInja says are Sub-missions and Twilight missions.

And that’s just the start. Team Ninja has three Nioh 2 DLC packs described as both “sizable” and “badass” planned. These include things like new yokai, bosses, and Guardian Spirits, new difficulty levels and equipment, and end-game content as well. The first Nioh 2 DLC pack, called “The Tengu’s Disciple,” is set to release on July 30, and according to Team Ninja, there’s even more to it than what we learned today.

The full announcement is on the PlayStation Blog. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Nioh 2 news as it slices and dices our way, and check out our collection of Nioh 2 guides if you’re just getting started or need some tips before the new content drops.
