Recently published on the PlayStation.blog, Creative Director of Team Ninja, Tom Lee, detailed on the blog site what fans can expect from the upcoming DLC known as “Defiant Honor”. Below reads a brief description explaining the upcoming expansion.
“Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle and adds a new weapon, new armor, new guardian spirits… and, of course, new Yokai to challenge.”
Defiant Honor is said to take fans and gamers to Osaka Castle, one of the largest and most hardest castles of Sengoku era to overcome. Additionally, this add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else.
Furthermore, as tension between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans rise, Sanada Yukimura prepares his troops for sudden conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by erecting a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outer parts of Osaka Castle. During the midst of this chaos, protagonist William who is accompanied by Date Masamune, who fights alongside Tokugawa, heads towards Sanada Maru in pursuit of Maria.
According to Lee, players will be bundling up to face harsh winter weather and will be accompanied by a list of new armor, weapons and guardian spirits to face new Yokai and enemies in the upcoming expansion.
New difficulty settings, trophies, stages, sub-missions and other hidden content will be featured in the DLC known as Defiant Honor.
Following the release of the May DLC entitled Dragon of the North, the second downloadable content for Nioh, “Defiant Honor,” will debut on July 25th. The upcoming expansion will cost $9.99 and will be free for those who have purchased Nioh Season Pass.
