It’s an ‘Alpha Demo’
Nioh might still be months away, but Koei Tecmo is helping to curb the wait with an “Alpha Demo,” that will arrive this month that, much like the game, will be exclusive to PS4. The demo itself will only be live from April 26 to May 5, and developer Team Ninja will use the feedback given to shape the final version, and will hold an online survey for players to participate in.
Tipping off the “Alpha” moniker right away is a good idea, that way they can deflect from a lot of the criticisms it may get as a rough build. Either way I’m looking forward to seeing if they nail the atmosphere, since this is one of the first times (if the very first) that Nioh is playable by the general public and the press alike.
