- Nioh 2 launched on PC on February 5, 2021;
- The title recorded a great launch, attracting more than 30 thousand players on the first day, to reach less than 40 thousand a day later.
Koei Tecmo can be satisfied with the launch of Nioh 2: Complete Edition on PC. On the release day (the title launched on February 5) the game was played by more than 30,000 people, reaching nearly 40,000 at its peak a day later.
This result is almost four times better than the one achieved by the first installment of Nioh, Dark Souls and its remaster. Admittedly, the results of Dark Souls 2 (more than 79 thousand) and Dark Souls 3 (less than 130 thousand) are still far away, but bearing in mind that the franchise appeared on the market in 2017, the growing popularity of the Nioh series can still be a source of pride for the devs from Team Ninja.
Unfortunately, player activity was not been followed by reviews at this point. So far, only 68% of reviews out of a total of 2465 are positive. There are complaints about the generally unpolished PS4 port, performance problems and bugs, and incomplete implementation of keyboard and mouse support. Though it's still better than on launch day when the percentage of positive reviews was around 57%. The day one patch fixed some of the bugs present in Nioh 2 on PC.
The game is also available on PlayStation 5 and offers a free upgrade option from PS4 if we have the title in our library (it doesn't matter if we're talking about a digital copy or a boxed edition).
