No one knew… except the selected few that got an invite, I guess
Would have preferred a slightly more “open“ closed alpha with signup, survey + pitch and then they send invites from there… but I've never had luck with those either, so I guess it doesn't matter in my case XD
The demo is also for 10 whole days… so the might also send stuff in waves.
I didn't want to go to Gamescom this year, but if Nioh 2 is playable… I guess I have to…
I know someone who got in, but is pretty much a random person otherwise… not press, large content creator etc.
Though if you didn't get any mail by now you are not in… or at least not in the first batch. Given the rather long timespan of the demo, I wouldn't rule it out that they send some more emails over time. All we can do is hope lol
I think Nioh is a great game, a really great game. But what ruins it for me is it being like Dark Souls and Bloodborne, running around with your health potions then you get killed, do it all again and pick up souls. I'd rather just die then try again. This whole Dark souls theme bores the shit outta me. I was gonna get Nioh 2 but I'll pass now.
So Yokai shift replaces Living Weapon from the first game.
Here is a video on the character customization, of course, alpha is very limited, but we can see they have at least a bunch of menus, i think this will be a really in depht customization system.
About performance, there was a stream that seemed 720p 60fps, but i can't confirm with only having my naked eye as source. So, if anyone find anything related to that, i would be thankful, i'm hoping it runs as well as Nioh 1 on regular ps4.
