Japanese developer Team Ninja has confirmed that the studio's latest PlayStation 4 exclusive will receive at least three major content drops, with NiOh 2's first big expansion — The Tengu's Disciple — launching on the 30th of July. As a friendly reminder, the critically acclaimed masocore game hit stores back in March.
"We’re planning to release a total of three sizable & badass DLC batches over the next several months to provide you guys with additional challenges to keep you on the edge-of-your-seat," Creative Director Tom Lee said. "There will be new 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."
That's obviously not all, as the fast-approaching NiOh 2 DLC will also introduce brand-new difficulty levels and end-game content. The award-winning studio celebrates the announcement with a free giveaway, allowing you to download a selection of action-packed wallpapers from the PlayStation Blog right now.
What's even better, a completely free update for NiOh 2 is now available, presenting some new features such as Photo Mode. "This will be much more than a simple add-on as it will feature in-depth camera settings like image exposure, gradation, lighting & tint adjustments, and a variety of dramatic filters. In addition, we are providing nine new missions (Sub-missions / Twilight missions) as part of this update. This is all a small part of our larger commitment to provide you guys with the most engaging gaming experience for Nioh 2. And in our efforts to fulfill that commitment, we will vigorously pay close attention to your feedback and continue to provide updates when we are able," Lee added.
NiOh 2 has sold over 1 million units worldwide, so it's safe to say that Team Ninja won't abandon their opus magnum anytime soon. Without further ado, take a look at the official Tengu's Disciple artwork down below:
