Nioh’s 1.14 update launches alongside Defiant Honor DLC

Team Ninja has released Nioh’s second major DLC pack, Defiant Honor, along with a new patch that includes additional features that are available to all players free of charge.

The main highlight of Nioh’s patch 1.14 is support for the Defiant Honor DLC pack, a pack which grants access to a new story chapter set in an entirely new region, the new Tonfa weapon type, a new ‘Way of the Wise’ difficulty level, a new ‘Ethereal’ equipment rarity tier, and more. However, even those who don’t buy Defiant Honor can still enjoy certain aspects of patch 1.14, including:

  • Two new PvP maps
  • New Ninjitsu and Onmyo skills
  • New clans that can be joined in Clan Battles
  • New gestures to unlock

The patch also includes a slew of quality-of-life changes, the full list of which can be found here. After Defiant Honor, Nioh still has one more DLC pack on the way: Bloodshed’s End.
