From the acclaimed makers of Armored Core, Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series comes Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the next evolution in a style of game that rewards you for being smartly aggressive but will similarly punish you for placing a foot wrong. The so-called “soulsborne” subset of action-roleplaying games isn’t for the faint of heart, testing players patience, skill and willingness to press on while at the risk of losing everything. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is no exception.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice casts you in the role of a disfigured and disgraced warrior known as the “one-armed wolf” who is in search of redemption. Tasked with protecting a young lord who is the descendent of an ancient bloodline, you’ll need to ward off the waves of enemies attempting to compromise your mission. Chief amongst these combatants are the dangerous Ashina clan, who will do whatever it takes to prevent you from regaining your honour.
Set in a late 1500s Sengoku, Japan, players are offered the potential to become the ultimate ancient master of the sword as they traverse the incredibly detailed world developer FromSofware has created. Seamlessly blending stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head-to-head combat scenarios, you can expect to unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities in myriad bloody confrontations.
