Nioh will be adding PVP as free DLC after launch

In addition to the season pass

While Nioh isn’t exactly a PVP game, it will be getting the capability at some point in the future. Although it’ll ship as a PVE experience, director Yosuke Hayashi told Gamereactor that they already have a PVP mode in the works, and will add it as a free download, separate from the season pass.

I’m really interested in seeing how the netcode is for this, or how this even plays out, given the relatively poor multiplayer in Ninja Gaiden 3, but I don’t really even need this gametype. Really, I’m just invested in conquering the campaign and figuring out the stance mechanic — even after all that beta time I still feel rusty.

Nioh will arrive early next month on PS4.
