Nioh Complete Edition Announced for Steam, Coming November 7th

If you're looking towards getting your next Dark Souls-like fix, Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo's latest Nioh should set you right up for that. Another one of the Souls-inspired games we've been seeing recently (with the likes of Lords of the Fallen and The Surge), Nioh was marketed as a PS4-exclusive - though in reality, it is now making its way towards the PC. However, the developers have strayed far from the "Souls clone" stamp; instead, the focus was in taking inspiration from the Dark Souls formula and then subverting it with their own take.

It seems that this game will stand closer to the straight port territory than PC users would prefer, however; the presence of two different game modes that were also present in the PS4 version of the game, an Action Mode for 60 fps action and a Movie Mode for up to 4K displays, seems to point towards an automatic customization of settings based on the chosen mode. Reception for Nioh was very positive; the game currently stands with an 88 Metacritic score and an 8.5 user score. The Nioh Complete Edition will include all previously released DLC, and will be available on Steam starting November 7th.

I'm over half way through the game on PS4 Pro, but having to choose 1080p at 60fps or 4K at 30fps was a letdown. Finally I can play this game at 4K/60fps with no compromises! Time to finish the Playstation version before November...

There's no guarantee you'll be able to select 4k and 60fps at the same time on PC. In fact, there's no hint the game will have additional customization on PC at all.

As usual, I'll be waiting for the GOG release. And, as usual, it will never happen.

Wait, this can be played @4K 30fps on the PS4? This is surely not real 4K, is it?

30 fps on the PS4 is a terrible unplayable slideshow stutter.

I hope is not going to be a bad port , that 60fps action mode and cinematic 4k is not assuring at all.
If 4k is capped is going to be very bad +Koei should just stop doing thing with locked resolutions and fps with game launcher and update every game they have on steam with normal settings.
