The first of three pieces of DLC for Nioh 2 has today launched on the PlayStation Store, bringing with it a brand new area to do battle in and another story to follow. Titled The Tengu's Disciple, you can purchase it standalone for £7.99/$9.99 or as part of the Nioh 2 season pass which comes in at £19.99/$19.99.

The listing states: "Travel to the new coastal region of Yashima and go back in time to the final years of the Heian period. There, you’ll meet new allies, face fearsome yokai and discover the connection between the legendary Sohayamaru and Otakemaru." The DLC will unlock access to more than 10 new missions across three different stages, more unique bosses and Yokai, and an all-new weapon type named the SplitStaff. With two more content packs to come in the following months, these additions to Nioh 2 appear to be fairly meaty. We're sure they'll make what was already a great game even better.
