Nioh's first premium DLC expansion, Dragon of the North, is slated to arrive on 2nd May for 7.99 / €9.99.


Alternatively, it's included in the Season Pass, which is currently on sale for 19.99 / €24.99.

As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, this add-on sees William venture off to the new Oshu region, which is crawling with new Yokai and ruled by the "one-eyed dragon" Masamune Date.

The expansion will include a new weapon, the traditional Japanese sword odachi, along with new magic, armour, ninja skills and more.

Additionally, the game's long-anticipated PvP functions will arrive as a free update to coincide with Dragon of the North's release.
