Pre-order bonuses for Team Ninja’s upcoming brutal action role-playing game Nioh have been revealed, giving you several reasons to secure an early copy.
A new post on the official PlayStation blog details two different editions of the game that are currently available. First is the standard edition which is priced at $60 and includes just the base-game. The second is the deluxe edition which is priced at $80 and adds the Season Pass as well as five new weapons and a PlayStation 4 avatar on top.
Pre-ordering any of the two editions net you the black Nioh samurai armor set, inspired by ancient statues seen at various temples in Japan, and an exclusive PlayStation 4 dynamic theme. However, placing a pre-order on the PlayStation Store also nets you an additional Crimson Master Armor which is based on Yukimura Sanada, a real Japanese samurai warrior of the Sengoku period.
Do note that the Crimson Master Armor is not exclusive to just pre-orders. Anyone who purchases Nioh from the PlayStation Store within two weeks of the game’s launch will get the add-on content.
With PlayStation 4 Pro releasing last week, Sony revealed that Nioh will be taking advantage of the new console upgrade at release. Team Ninja is including additional options in the game that allow players to choose between higher resolutions or frame-rate.
With Nioh featuring some tough challenges, players might favor better frame-rate over higher resolution at specific moments in the game. Speaking on the difficulty aspect of the game, game director Yosuke Hayashi stated that players must pay “special attention to the movements of enemies”. There’s always an opening, players just need to remember that they “shouldn’t fear death”.
Nioh is scheduled to release exclusively for PlayStation 4 on February 7 in North America, February 8 in Europe, and February 9 in the United Kingdom.
