We'll share more details on the beta as more information is released. In the meantime, if you'd like to learn more about the game, we recently got a new trailer for Nioh 2, showing off some of the nightmarish bosses players will have to face and new locations that will be visited. In Nioh 2, the protagonist is not entirely human but is instead half-Yokai, allowing them to use monstrous powers and transform in the heat of battle. Nioh 2 is set to be available at some point in early 2020.
