With the eagerly anticipated release of KOEI Tecmo and Team NINJA's Dark Souls-like Nioh: Complete Edition coming on November 7, an interview with Game Director Fumihiko Yasuda corrects some misconceptions about the graphic settings in the upcoming PC release of Nioh: Complete Edition, and confirms the game will not have the hated DENUVO DRM system attached. Details below.
When KOEI TECMO announced Nioh on PC, the publisher stated that the game will contain two different graphics modes. 'Action Mode' boasts 60FPS gameplay, whereas 'Movie Mode' allows support for 4K resolutions. We questioned the oddness off locking them off separately before suggesting that maybe mods could unlock both.
Fortunately it seems this was a mistake. In an interview with WCCFTech, Game Director Fumihiko Yasuda says that those two modes are actually pre-set graphical options, and instead "the resolution, rendering quality and framerates are independent options that can be altered by the player." Which is excellent news, even if he does also say that the game will not support ultrawide (21:9) resolutions. The game is fully playable with mouse and keyboard though, apparently.
Even better, Yasuda puts our fears to rest regarding a certain piece of DRM: "The game will not be using DENUVO." Hooray.
The Dark Souls-like action RPG Nioh from KOEI TECMO and Team Ninja released in February on consoles. The PC version, titled Nioh: Complete Edition will contain all the previously DLC for the game and several PC-exclusive extras. Check out everything we know about the game here, which we're about to update with the current information.
Nioh: Complete Edition has a PC release date on Steam of November 7.
