Story details on Nioh’s upcoming DLC update, Dragon of the North

New armour, enemies and ninja skills await in PS4 action RPG on 2nd May

Greetings, fearless samurai! Are your swords sharpened for another quest within the deadly world of Nioh? We know you’ve been champing at the bit for more, so we’re very happy to fully reveal what awaits you in the next batch of DLC: Dragon of the North.

Slicing its way onto PlayStation Store on 2nd May, Dragon of the North follows on from William’s valiant struggle in the main game. Rumours have emerged from the Oshu region that its ambitious ruler, Masamune Date (the “one-eyed dragon”) is secretly gathering spirit stones. With the Yokai flourishing in Oshu, turmoil and unrest is inevitable…

As you battle your way through a new region with original stages, you’ll encounter these terrifying new Yokai, hell-bent on destroying you. Thankfully, you’ll be able to take advantage of a new weapon – an odachi – as well as armour, ninja skills, magic… and you’ll also gain the aid of fresh Guardian Spirits to help in your mission. And to cap it all off, Dragon of the North will also include pulse-pounding PvP features.


Dragon of the North will be available to buy for €9.99 / £7.99, or free if you own a Nioh season pass, which is still on sale for €24.99 / £19.99 via PlayStation Store.


Expect more information closer to the 2nd May launch – but in the meantime, better get practicing…

Im hoping for eye patch headgear! How is that not a thing still!

Also the new weapon makes me think we gonna meet Sasaki Kojiro as well. Looking forward to the DLCs.

You mean the season pass is on “sale” as in reduced price or on “sale” as being sold on the ps store?

On sale as in it’s on sale. As in it’s being sold. The concept of selling a thing, you refer to that thing as being “on sale”. Selling stuff. Sales of selling sale items.



Gotta admit so far this looks like fun. But I really hope this DLC has female disguises.

Something I’ve wished for since the Beta Demo.
