Following a closed alpha test earlier this year, a full-on Nioh 2 open beta will be available to all PS4 gamers this November.
With Nioh 2's upcoming beta, Team Ninja is honing their fiery demonic blade to ensure it's ready for an early 2020 release. Sony announced a Nioh 2 open beta will go live from November 1-10 on PS4 and should include similar content as the alpha. We should also see Nioh's awesome frame rate performance mode return too.
The so-called samurai Souls sequel pushes the bar even further with insane demon transformations, new weapons, and deeper character customization. Gamers can now harness the power of the devilish Yokai to dish out tremendous damage. The dynamic and hard-as-nails combat is back in full force, complete with the innovative stance system and massive hulking bosses straight out of Japanese myth.
Nioh 2's open beta will go live on November 1, and the full game is set to release sometime in early 2020 on PlayStation 4. There was no mention of a PC version.
