Nioh 2

Nioh 2 is quietly creeping up on us with a confirmed release window of early 2020. It'll have to go up against heavy hitters such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake, but we reckon the follow-up to Team Ninja's 2017 samurai success can calve out its own audience. And to make that wait a little bit easier, an open beta will give you access to a slice of the action this November.

Starting on 1st November and running through to the tenth, Nioh 2 will take us to the Dark Realm where we'll be able to sample a new setting, gritty and brutal combat, and all manner of boss fights. While PlayStation's official Twitter account doesn't confirm it, we assume you won't need to pre-order the game to gain access. That's what the wording would suggest, anyway.

Will you be making time for Nioh 2's open beta this November? Survive until then in the comments below.
