Tom Lee via the PlayStation blog detailed some of the updates for Nioh 2 today. One of today’s updates includes an in-depth photo mode featuring camera settings such as image exposure, gradation, lighting, tint adjustments, and an assortment of preset filters. 9 new sub/twilight missions we also added into today’s update with plans for more to come.
New details about the first of three Nioh 2 DLC packages have emerged, which plan to release in the next several months. DLC additions include storylines, new yokai, ferocious new bosses, Guardian Spirits, new skills, fresh armor, and a new weapon that alters the performance of skills outside of set stances. New difficulties and end-game content will also be added extending the main campaign in this first DLC pack releasing July 30th titled “The Tengu’s Disciple”. New wallpapers have been added as a bonus to keep players motivated as they wait for the new chapter to arrive in July.
Some clues and context were added to gain clarity about the storylines to come in “The Tengu’s Disciple”.
A great battle has taken place at Yashima in the late Heian period. As a visitor in Yashima, our protagonist finds a shrine possessing a mysterious whistle called the Sohayamaru. Upon inspection, the whistle shines radiantly as the shadow of Yokai can be seen lurking in the background. It is revealed that whenever wars take place, heroes wielding the Sohayamaru will head into battle in order to restore peace back into this land.
We expect to hear more details in the coming months as “The Tengu’s Disciple” release date approaches.
