The expected repair of Nioh 2 arrived on the PC this morning.
Team Ninja today released a new update for Nioh 2 on PC. Although update 1.27.1 does not bring any major new features, it is one that PC gamers have been eagerly awaiting, simply because patch 1.27 has broken the game for many.
In particular, version 1.27 introduced a strange bug that sometimes caused text to disappear from the game’s menus, making it difficult to navigate. The update also brought a number of random crashes, which caused Team Ninja to issue a statement that it was actually investigating these reports.
Today, the developer brings fixes. Update 1.27.1 actually includes a fading fix as well as a number of crash fixes. Some crashes were caused by opening the character directory, using Gaki Soul Core in a certain sub-mission, and even just loading into certain game environments.
Today’s update also brings more fixes for gamers at 120 frames per second, especially for more consistent Burst Counters and proper synchronization of certain enemy moves. Let’s hope Nioh 2 is now safe from crashes, at least most of the time.
The full change log can be found below:
- Fixed an issue that caused the game to crash when opening a DLSS-enabled character directory.
- Fixed an issue that could cause a crash when raised to 750 when using a mouse.
- Fixed an issue that caused the game to crash in certain environments.
- Fixed an issue that could prevent text from appearing on the screen in certain environments.
- Fixed an issue that caused the game to crash when using the Gaki Soul Core Yokai ability in the “The Alluring Ancient” sub-mission.
- Fixed an issue when playing at 120 frames per second when the Burst Counters did not work properly against the Burst Attacks of certain enemies.
- Fixed an issue when playing in 120fps game mode, where some enemies behaved differently than expected.
- Other minor bug fixes.
