Tecmo Koei has announced the release of a playable aplha demo of Nioh this April 26 in Europe and North America. The Alpha Demo version of the game will be available until May 5 worldwide for PlayStation 4.
Nioh was one of the titles that impressed a lot of people during its gameplay in the last PlayStation Experience. Today Sony has confirmed that the title is still scheduled for exclusive release on PlayStation 4 for this 2016 output and that the game will feature a free playable demo.
This will be presented in an Alpha demo that will be playable from April 26 to May 5. Trying out the demo will award those who make use of it during the given period, and players will even receive a DLC called “The mark of the conqueror” when the game is available.
Koei Tecmo’s General Producer, Kou Shibusawa also said on the official PlayStation blog that “Ten years have passed since Nioh was originally announced. Even during all that time though, gamers would always ask about it at events like E3 and Gamescom. We always felt support from the gamers around the world for this title.”
“Now, finally, Nioh — a game created with the entire power of Koei Tecmo — will be released in 2016. In appreciation to all the fans who have waited so long, and in order to have gamers everywhere try Nioh as soon as possible, we will release the Alpha Demo this month. We hope you enjoy overcoming the challenges in this masocore take on samurai action — Nioh.”
