Bloody Graves, Benevolent Graves, and… Co-op
Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition is on the horizon and it’s about to make Sengoku-era Japan even deadlier than before. This version includes the base game, all three DLC expansions, and some brand new multi-hero modes to make fighting yokai a little less lonesome. Also, you may get a very, er, striking helmet with your Steam purchase. This may be the final installment to the Nioh franchise, but we finally got a multiplayer function, so don’t miss this opportunity to thank Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja for their hard work. We must all one day leave this world, so let’s have one last hurrah before the book closes on Nioh 2, all right? All right.
Straight from the press release, here’s the rundown on the three multi-hero modes available in Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition: “Bloody Graves, Benevolent Graves, and the Co-op Mode found at the Torii Gate. At Bloody Graves, players are able to summon the Revenant (AI controlled spectres) of other players, offering them a chance to fight these spirits to earn loot and experience. Benevolent Graves similarly allow the summoning of an AI controlled character, but when offering Ochoko Cups to these graves the character will fight alongside your player for a brief period. The final option, the Co-op Mode found at the Torii Gate, offers players the chance to fight alongside each other in real-time to defeat the deadly yokai. While playing in this online mode, companions can be resurrected mid-fight; however, there will not be any checkpoints to rely on.”
So you’ve got two options to play with (or against) AI and one option to play with friends. Sounds like a nice variety. We can’t wait to give it a shot. As if that weren’t enough news, here’s a glimpse of the game’s technical specs: “PC players will be able to enjoy the complete single-player and multi-player experience with crystal clear 4K Ultra-HD support, alongside ultra wide-screen compatibility, HDR monitor support, and 144Hz monitor support complete with silky-smooth gameplay at a consistent 60/120 FPS on compatible systems.”
Now those are some nice numbers!
Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition will be available for PC on February 5th, 2021.
