Team Ninja is celebrating Nioh 2’s success with free content.

Nioh 2 has sold over one million units since its release in March. Developer Team Ninja announced the milestone earlier, and released a new patch that brings a number of free additions.

For starters, Nioh 2 now has a photo mode. The photo mode features the usual filters and ways to adjust the image, including the ability to move the camera position. The game has received nine new missions, split between Sub-mission and the challenging Twilight Mission. You’ll also find a new Guardian Spirit in Mizuchi.

There have been a couple of quality of life changes in this update, too. The Soul Core screen shown at the end of a mission will now let you lock and perform Resting Rites without having to wait until you can access a Shrine. For those who like a clean image, the HUD for sheathed weapons can now be disabled.

If you’re tired of blood splatter messing up the look of your character, you can now remove it entirely.

Looking to the future, Team Ninja confirmed that it’s working on three add-ons for the game, to be released over the next several months. The add-ons will bring a new weapon, lots of new armour, as well as new story content, bosses, Yokai, Guardian Spirits and even new skills.

The first DLC, called The Tengu’s Disciple, launches July 30, and takes place in late-Heian period Yashima.

In the future, you can expect more end-game content and new difficulty levels, as well as more quality of life changes and bug fixes.
