Now that Nioh, the action role-playing game developed by Team Ninja, is out in all regions, the team can focus on adding more features and content to their game. In a new livestream, some of the features coming to the game soon have been confirmed.

A new Nioh update will be released late next month, which will add high difficulty missions to the game. There will be 10 different types of missions, including missions that will feel like boss rushes, so players should expect these missions to be quite challenging.

Another very welcome addition will be coming to Nioh in the near future. Another new update coming in late April will add PvP to the game, which will definitely expand the experience.

During today’s livestream, more details have been revealed about the first DLC, which will release in late April. The pack, which has yet to get an official Western name, will include new weapon types, new scenarios, new characters, new yokai, new stages and more.

In his Nioh review, Kai noted how the game is one of the best action RPG he has played in years, and one of the finest PlayStation 4 titles to date.

Putting the difficult nature of Nioh aside, the finely tuned combat that Team Ninja has crafted for this samurai epic is among the best I’ve played in years. Nioh more than satisfies my craving for a new Onimusha to come out of the Capcom teams while simultaneously feeding my hunger for another Souls-style affair. The difficulty may be enough to turn some prospective gamers from stepping into William’s boots, but those that persevere through the fields of yokai and demons will be rewarded with one of the finest PS4 exclusives to date.

Nioh is now available in all regions exclusively on PlayStation 4.
