Team Ninja’s upcoming Souls-inspired adventure Nioh is set to release on the PlayStation 4 next month. Considering how much inspiration the game draws from FromSoftware’s challenging series, PvP combat seemed like a given, but up until now Team Ninja has been mum as to whether or not players would be able to cross swords with one another outside of the game’s cooperative mode.

Thankfully, it seems like players with a taste for blood will be getting their wish. Speaking to Spanish-language publication Gamereactor, Team Ninja confirmed that Nioh will indeed be getting a PvP mode after launch as part of a free update to the game.

In case you missed the game’s spectacular trailer from the PlayStation Experience event in December, be sure to watch it below:

Nioh will be releasing on the PlayStation 4 on February 7, 2017. For more details on the game, be sure to check out our early impressions in our preview here.
