While we know that the Tengu’s Disciple release date, no exact day has been given for either of the remaining Nioh 2 story expansions. However, the team did reveal the title and release window for the second expansion and just the title for the third one.

The Darkness in the Capital release date was also revealed. It came out on on October 15.

The Nioh 2 DLC 3 release date is December 17. This final expansion is called The First Samurai. All of these expansions will be in the PC and PS5 release as well as the PS4 re-release with all of the content.
