Nioh is a samurai action-RPG released on the PlayStation 4 back in February to some overwhelmingly positive reviews. People often compare it to Dark Souls or Bloodborne, and while there are definitely some similarities when it comes to the combat, the overall experience is a lot different, albeit still enjoyable. As such, I am very glad to say that Nioh is soon coming to PC via Steam!

Besides all of the content and expansions bundled into one neat package, the PC version of Nioh will also bring improved performance, high-resolution graphics, and naturally, support for resolutions up to 4K. Depending on your PC configuration it will offer you two different modes to choose from: Action Mode that ensures a stable 60fps, and Movie Mode that goes all-out in terms of visuals. Its not exactly a common, or even sensible way of doing things, but if the Action Mode can truly keep a stable framerate on middle-of-the-line configurations I'd still call that a net positive.

Now that you have a brief idea of what the PC version of Nioh is all about, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It doesn't go into any gameplay details I'm afraid, but it should still give you a good look at the improved PC visuals. Have a gander:

The PC version of Nioh will be coming this September 7th, though the official price tag has not been revealed just yet. If you would like to learn more about it, or just check out some actual gameplay videos, you should head over to either the official website or Steam. And finally, here's a brief look at the PC-exclusive helmet. I think you can guess what the developers were inspired by!
