The growing Nioh franchise is a dark fantasy ARPG that has historically been a PS4 console exclusive, but eventually comes to PC. This is holding true with Nioh 2: The Complete Edition, which is heading to PC through Steam early next year. Fans of fantasy ARPG's should enjoy Nioh 2, which was well recieved for its engrossing world and engaging combat. The Complete Edition will allow PC players to explore everything the game has to offer, and includes all three DLC content packs, "The Tengu's Disciple," "Darkness in the Capital," and the recently announced "The First Samurai."
Nioh 2: The Complete Edition will also feature this exclusive hat on Steam, which definitely has a... unique aesthetic that may appeal to some players. Nioh 2: The Complete Edition comes to PC on February 5, 2020, meaning players only have a few months to wait to play the latest unique ARPG from Koei Tecmo, and all the DLC that has been announced for the game so far.
Despite the name notating a successor to the original Nioh, Nioh 2 is actually a prequel for the first game. If you played or enjoyed the first game, Nioh 2 expands upon the foundations of the world, but ups the ante with improved graphics and combat. It'll have a lot of contest on PC, however, with the Best Games on PC putting up a hardy fight for players' time.
