Take Another Swing at PS4's Nioh 2 Ahead of Release
For fans hoping to get another chance at Nioh 2 before the action RPG's March 13 release, Sony and Team Ninja are offering a last-chance trial demo that doesn't require PlayStation Plus.
The demo is available from Friday, February 28 at 12:00 a.m. PST to Sunday, March 1 at 11:59 p.m. PST. The demo focuses on character creation, Yokai, and the game's "deadly" Switchglaive.
Players will be able to experience three of the game's missions, though it's not clear where these missions fall in Nioh 2's timeline. It is also not clear how long each mission or the demo is. And though progress will not carry over into the final game, characters created in the last-chance trial will transfer to Nioh 2.
With this final demo, yokai abilities, yokai summoning, ki management, the Dark Realm, and Nioh 2's weapons and stances will be on full display. Players will get another chance to test their mettle against fierce foes with a variety of weapons.
Though it's gone through some changes since its beta in November, you can see our initial reactions to Nioh 2 here. Without getting our hands on the final product, we said that "Nioh 2 is a game that speaks to Souls fans. It pairs technical combat and tons of loot with genre-accurate difficulty and a change of scenery. That alone makes it worth checking out."
Currently, Nioh 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive. There is no official word if the game will release on the PC as its predecessor did. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more on Nioh 2 as it slices through hordes of deadly yokai.
