Then last week at Tokyo Game Show 2019, a gameplay overview trailer came out with a release window of early 2020. Open Beta program for fans of the samurai adventure game is announced to begin from November 1, 2019.

Apparently, only players on PlayStation 4 consoles can take part in Open Beta and there is no official confirmation on whether Team Ninja will keep this a PS4-exclusive title or it may see launch on PC and Xbox One platforms.

Despite comparison between Nioh series and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by From Software, developers made sure that it stands out unique among other samurai games, including upcoming Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch.

Nioh 2 doesn't have an official release date revealed yet other than a launch period of early 2020 on PS4 and hopefully that is not January. Original Nioh came out on February 2017 from publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Play Anthem With Origin Access

After seven months of drag following launch, Anthem has finally joined EA Access monthly subscription service.

Though debuted as one of most anticipated video games of 2019, online multiplayer action role-playing game Anthem from developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts has been a train-wreck ever since it was released.

After a couple of failed attempts to revive its player base with content and patches, EA has finally made the game available for their subscription-based service EA Access and Origin Access on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Regular subscribers will be able to play Standard Edition of the game and Premier tier members of Origin Access for PC platform can get their hands on Legion of Dawn edition, which has bunch of more cool staffs for each Javelin classes.

Earlier, Origin Access members were only able to get "Play First" trial comprised of a 10-hour preview of main game. Instead of paying $14.99 for Premier subscription, players can now have the game on regular Access for $4.99 only.

BioWare's latest open-world action RPG was updated with endgame activity Cataclysm back in August and received another patch on September 4, yet it could never lived up to its hype or even deliver a decent experience for many who supported it.

At one point there was a rumor that Anthem is likely to go free-to-play anytime and now joining EA Access vault has made it pretty much that. They simply do not have enough content to do that like Bungie did with Destiny 2: New Light.

After lead producer Ben Irving leaving recently, the future of Anthem seems uncertain but Electronic Arts pledges to continue their support through post-launch content, which still is a critical and commercial disappointment to them.

Shenmue 3 Offers Limited Time Only Refunds

Kickstarter backers of Shenmue III have only two weeks for refund requests or to change their preferred version.

Even after having a very successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, action-adventure game Shenmue III from developer Ys Net and publisher Deep Silver took its sweet time in development phase and had a number of painful delays.

When it becomes an Epic Games Store-exclusive, upset fans were asking for a refund that was initially denied. Epic Games offered to pay angry backers on their behalf but now it is revealed that requests will be accepted for only two-weeks.

In a latest update on Kickstarter page, Ys Net announced to do an e-mail survey on backers in mid-September that offers a refund request for anyone who originally pledged for PC platform and don't want to have Epic Store version.

Typically, these surveys go out to donors shortly before releasing final product to finalize their product preferences or change shipping address. Unfortunately, it will last only for two-weeks and doesn't seem like a smooth process at all.

Following that limited time window, no one can request a refund anymore and processing could take from up to 20 business days to 3 months for entire transaction to be complete, meaning a backer can wait for 4 months to get their money back.

Asking for patience from fans, Ys Net has apologized for this lengthy process which is due to Shenmue III campaign being running for longer than 4 years that adds up with complexity of payment arrangements and transactions system.

RELATED: Shenmue 3 Backers Getting Refund from Epic Store

Ys Net has also planned out a trial version for the game, which will be coming out in mid-September and no specific dates were revealed. It will be playable for an hour but they didn't specify whether or not it is an exclusive to PC.

Although players can get quite a lot of experience from that opening hour from demo that is set on the game's starting area. However, no progress will be carried out to final release version when it becomes available to PC and PlayStation 4.

RELATED: Shenmue 3 Backers Won't Get Pre-Order Content

Even though CEO of Epic Games, Tim Sweeney promised to cover any cost for Ys Net to cover refunds for player base on PC, remaining Kickstarter backers are not going to receive its pre-order content for free anymore as they were promised.

Shenmue III is currently scheduled to release for PC via Epic Games Store and PS4 on November 19, 2019. It will likely to come to Steam storefront a year after release when its one year exclusivity period on EGS is finally over.

One of primary concern pointed out by players are character movement and then transition to player action response has smoothed out. These changes are focused on combo and evading but none of them will affect your core gameplay.

Enemy attacks are improved in terms of animation and their SFX timing in general with more reactions added for them now. In trial edition, they will give a flinch reaction whenever they are hit with a heavy attack or knockdown.

However, small damage will bring slight flinch reaction from them without their attack flow being interrupted in case of retail version. Newly reworked enemy reactions will now feel better than before in each dealt attack.

Developers tried better defining your status doing exploration or fighting and some UI adjustments were made. Players will get a better in-game perspective and sense of distance due to recent adjustment in camera behavior.
