NioH 2 is een kleurrijke game vol spektakel en prachtige omgevingen, dus de game schreeuwt eigenlijk als het ware om een eigen Photo Mode om enkele mooie momenten uit de game mee vast te leggen. Die Photo Mode laat niet meer op zich wachten, want de komst van update 1.09 betekent eindelijk dat we onze innerlijke fotograaf op NioH 2 mogen loslaten. Zoals wel vaker het geval is bij Photo Modes, kan je ook in NioH 2 verschillende effecten en filters aan je beeld toevoegen, om alles net een tikje meer fotogeniek te maken.

Team Ninja maakte van de gelegenheid ook gebruik om ons alvast wat te teasen met wat nieuws omtrent DLC-uitbreidingen. NioH 2 krijgt in de toekomst in totaal namelijk drie grote uitbreidingen met nieuwe yokai, nieuwe baasgevechten en nog zoveel meer. De eerste uitbreiding heet “The Tengu’s Disciple” en komt op 30 juli uit. We mogen in de toekomst echter meer details verwachten over wat deze uitbreidingen precies zullen inhouden.

Update 1.09 is nu te downloaden en de volledige lijst met veranderingen kan je alvast hieronder nalezen.
