The final piece of Nioh DLC will release on September 26. Called Bloodshed’s End, the DLC will close out the Sengoku-era and mark the end of William’s adventure. It’ll feature new missions, a new Yokai, a new Guardian Spirit to use in battle, and a new difficulty level. Additionally, there’ll be a new mode called The Abyss, which is where “the strongest warriors can test their skills in a perpetual battleground.” The DLC will cost $9.99, and is included within the game’s Season Pass.
Here’s what you can expect from the DLC (description via the PlayStation Blog):
Our latest adventure picks up where we left off in Defiant Honor. The Siege of Osaka’s winter campaign was put to an end by a peace negotiation between Toyotomi and Tokugawa.
However, conditions were harsh as Osaka Castle lost its secondary and tertiary enclosures, as well as its inner and outer moats, leaving just the main enclosure for the defeated.
Inevitably, this situation led to an uprising and another war broke out just months after the winter campaign. This is the final phase of the Sengoku-era, and the end of William’s journey.
Other than additional main missions, sub missions and Twilight missions, one of the most interesting features of Bloodshed’s End is a new mode called The Abyss. Here, the strongest warriors can test their skills in a perpetual battleground.
This new mode offers epic battles and unique challenges for the most skilled players. We’ll have more to reveal on this mode before launch.
As always, this DLC will provide you with the usual suspects to complete your Nioh experience — new Yokai, new characters, a new difficulty level and new Guardian Spirits.
The final piece of Nioh DLC releases September 26 for $9.99.
