While the two Nioh games are already playable on the PS5 thanks to the console’s backwards compatibility, Team Ninja and Sony have announced that Nioh and Nioh 2 remasters are releasing for the PS5 on February 5, 2021.
The remasters of Nioh and Nioh 2 for the PS5 will feature all DLC packs for each game, as well as offer a range of technical improvements. Specifically, the remasters will support 4K resolution, up to 120FPS gameplay, and ultra-fast load times. Plus, players will also be able to transfer their PS4 save data to the Nioh remasters on PS5.
The Nioh and Nioh 2 remasters will be available as standalone purchases, or as a bundle in The Nioh Collection for PS5. Alongside the release of the remasters, the Nioh 2 Complete Edition will also release for the PS4 in February. This version of the game will come with all three expansion DLCs for Nioh 2.
PS4 owners of Nioh 2 will also get a free upgrade to the Nioh 2 remaster for PS4. Here are the free upgrade details:
- Players that own Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition on PS4 can upgrade to Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition on PS5 at no additional cost.
- Players that own Nioh 2 on PS4 can upgrade to the base game – Nioh 2 Remastered on PS5, and receive the PS5 version of any DLC expansions they own on PS4.
Take note though, Nioh 2 disc versions will only be able to avail of the Nioh 2 remaster free upgrade if they have a PS5 with the Blu-Ray disc drive.
