Nioh 2 release date, open beta detailed

The Nioh 2 release date was today detailed alongside news of an open beta coming next month.

First, players can expect Nioh 2 from 13 March 2020; ahead of that time, an open beta will be offered from 1-10 November… or late tomorrow, in other words. Perfect timing for the weekend, eh?

“All players will be able to experience new elements such as our extensive character customisation feature, our newest weapon- the Switchglaive, and so much more,” a post on the PlayStation Blog reads, detailing the open beta.

“As you begin the beta, you will enter into a place called the Interim. Unlike the dojo tutorial from the previous game, the Interim is a safe zone where you will be able to choose your weapons, test out the basic moves and transition to a real stage when you are ready.”

Expect Nioh 2 from 13 March 2020 on Windows PC and PS4. A new trailer is below.
