The second expansion for Nioh, Defiant Honor is releasing on July 25 for PlayStation 4, developer Team Ninja announced today. It’ll be free to Season Pass owners, or $9.99/€9.99 on its own.
Creative Director Tom Lee said:
Defiant Honor takes us to Osaka Castle, the largest and most impregnable castle of Sengoku era. This add-on features the legendary warrior Sanada Yukimura, serving Tokugawa Ieyasu’s archenemy Toyotomi clan, who values honor above all else. As tensions brew between the Tokugawa and Toyotomi clans, Sanada Yukimura prepares his men for imminent conflict against the Tokugawa’s forces by building a stronghold called the Sanada Maru on the outskirts of the Osaka Castle. With the castle fortified, Tokugawa’s forces were faced with a difficult and bloody challenge.
In the midst of this chaos, our hero William, accompanied by Date Masamune who fights alongside Tokugawa, heads towards Sanada Maru in pursuit of Maria. It is a bitter winter in Osaka and the stage is ripe for a fierce battle for the ages. Bundle up and get ready for a brutal winter showdown!
Defiant Honor also comes with a new weapon Tonfa, new armor, new magic items, new guardians spirits, new Yokai and enemies, new difficulty levels and Trophies, legendary characters such as Sanada Yukimura, and new stages and sub-missions.
The third and final DLC pack in Nioh’s Season Pass is called Bloodshed’s End and will “bring the Siege of Osaka to an end during the Summer Campaign.” A release date hasn’t been given for it yet.
