Team NINJA has released a new patch for Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition that enables NVIDIA DLSS support in the popular action role-playing game for NVIDIA GeForce RTX Series graphics cards owners. Patch 1.26 also adds a new feature, the “Dragon Ninja” transformation, as well as a plethora of bug fixes that address issues ranging from items being unusable during multiplayer to UI elements displaying improperly in ultrawide resolutions.

“Experience the thrill of taking on hordes of fearsome yokai in a battle to the death in this brutal masocore Action RPG,” a game description reads. “Create your own original protagonist and embark on an adventure that will take you through devastated locales across Japan during the Sengoku period.”

“[…] Nioh 2 goes above and beyond its predecessor by including the new Yokai Shift ability which allows the protagonist to utilize new powerful forms to defeat even the most formidable yokai in battle. New to Nioh 2, your enemies can now create a Dark Realm which raises the stakes of battle and creates new challenges for your protagonist to overcome.”
