Koei Tecmo has released a new gameplay trailer for Nioh‘s first piece of DLC, Dragon of the North.

“This new chapter picks up after William’s valiant victory in restoring peace to Japan,” creative director Tom Lee said. “In keeping with the tradition of our inspiration through Japanese history and mythology, the central character for this new chapter is based on Lord Masamune Date, the ruler of the Sendai feudal domain in the Keicho Era (about 400 years ago). In our opinion, his personality and exploits in history lend himself to become a key player to contend with in the story.”

Dragon of the North will introduce new Yokai, imposing new enemies, and new stages for players to work their way through, as well as new Guardian Spirits, armor, ninja skills, magic, and a brand new weapon called the Odachi.

The DLC will be accompanied by a free update that will introduce the previously promised PvP feature.

Nioh: Dragon of the North is scheduled to launch tomorrow, May 2nd, for PlayStation 4.
