Nioh: Complete Edition

Koei Tecmo has announced that Nioh is coming to PC on November 7th. Originally released on the Playstation 4, Nioh is an action role-playing game developed by Team Ninja.

The Playstation 4 version launched in February this year and was generally well-received, praised by critics and currently holding an 88/100 score on Metacritic.

Nioh will release via Steam as the ‘Complete Edition’, which includes the base game and all three DLC’s: Bloodshed’s End, Defiant Honour and Dragon of the North.

The PC version will also receive a brand new item, the Dharmachakra Kabuto helmet. As you can see, the helmet is entirely fitting for the introduction of Nioh to Steam. It’s described as a ‘holy image that represents spiritual enlightenment attained by casting off one’s wordly desires…’.

Subtle.

Nioh on PC can be played either in Action Mode or Movie Mode. Action Mode means you’ll get a stable 60fps, while Movie Mode is focused on a cinematic experience, allowing for a resolution that can be expanded up to 4K.

Unfortunately it seems like the players amongst you with serious rigs won’t be able to do both, as players are strictly limited to these two modes.

Koei Tecmo have also confirmed that unlike the Playstation 4 version, PC players will access to all seven weapon types, ninjutsu and onmyo magics from the beginning. Finishing the game will then unlock features such as the Dual Guardian Spirit and more.

The publisher added:

“Blending a compelling narrative loosely based on the tale of the English navigation officer who served Ieyasu Tokugawa, William Adams, with a myriad of strange supernatural creatures from Japanese folklore (Yokai), players of Nioh: Complete Edition will discover a diverse and comprehensive world dripping with history and lore, and face off against other samurai in epic sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements.”

You’ll be able to grab Nioh: Complete Edition on November 7 via Steam.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
