Formerly a PlayStation 4 (PS4) exclusive, Nioh will land in the hands of PC gamers via Steam on November 7, publisher Koei Tecmo has announced. Carrying the title Nioh: Complete Edition, the release will bundle together the base game with its three DLC expansions: Dragon of the North, Defiant Honour, and Bloodshed's End.
Nioh takes place in 17th century Japan, putting players in the shoes of an Irish samurai warrior in a bid to take down yokai that have been wreaking havoc around Japan. In terms of gameplay and mood, Nioh draws tangible inspiration from the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, complete with a dark fantasy atmosphere.
The PC version of Nioh will be playable in two presentation modes. The first, Action Mode, focuses on hitting a constant 60 frames per second. The second, Movie Mode, is described as a "cinematic option" that will let players expand the resolution up to 4K. Differing from the PS4 release, Koei Tecmo also says that Nioh on PC will offer all seven weapon types to players from the start of the game.
Lastly, the Steam release will pack a special item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet, that take obvious inspiration from Valve's logo. Here's its tongue-in-cheek description:
Nioh will be available on Steam from November 7.

Such great news too. An awesome games deserves a wider audience.
I can't wait, as I've wanted to get into this game but could not due to the PS4 Exclusivity. Hopefully, this will be a stable port as that would make it's debut on PC quite the thrill.
