Surprisingly, yesterday the Nioh 2 Closed Alpha for PlayStation 4 was announced, available from May 24th to June 2nd only for a limited number of users. As expected, the first gameplay videos from the trial version were released on the net …
In particular, the ” DIOMED # BRO ” YouTube channel offers more than two hours of play, from the character creation and customization screen to the more advanced sections that can be reached in this Closed Beta, obviously the video contains ample spoilers on the plot and game mechanics, so if you don’t want to advance don’t press the Play button in the player you find in the opening.
The title screen also confirms that Nioh 2 will be published (at least in the West) by Sony Interactive Entertainment, as happened for the previous episode, while in Japan publishing should be by Koei-Tecmo.
At the moment the game does not have a release date, Nioh 2 will be released on PS4 and PS4 PRO probably at the end of 2019 or early 2020, we are waiting for confirmations from the publisher.
