Nioh: Complete Edition releasing for PC on November 7
Koei Tecmo has announced that samurai action RPG Nioh will make its way to PC via Steam next month with all DLCs included as Nioh: Complete Edition. The release includes the three expansions: ‘Dragon of the North’, ‘Defiant Honour’, and ‘Bloodshed’s End’ and all the included weapons, characters, and guardian spirits. You can find the Steam page here.
The PC release features a toggle between two gameplay performance mode, similar to the PlayStation 4 Pro version of the game. 'Action Mode' will run the game the 60 frames-per-second while 'Movie Mode' will run the game at 4K resolutions. Koei Tecmo has not provided more details on these modes, such as what resolutions are supported for Action Mode.
As a small bonus to PC players, a new equipment item - the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet - will be given to those who buy the Complete Edition.
The Wheel of Dharma kabuto is a form of "kawari-kabuto"—a family of helmets featuring fantastical designs. This helmet features a red-lacquered front crest of an ancient Buddhist symbol depicting the eightfold path to nirvana. This holy image represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one's worldly desires, and also holds the power to banish evil. However, some claim this is not a Wheel of Dharma at all, merely a replica that looks as though it belongs on a device to regulate steam… Some have gone so far as to suggest renaming it to "Valve Kabuto," but why anyone would make a helmet featuring a valve is unclear…
