Ben Sheene / Aug 21st, 2018 No Comments
FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will release on March 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The release date was revealed at Gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany where attendees will be among the first to play the game.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person, action-adventure game directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, known for his work on Bloodborne, Demon’s Souls, and the Dark Souls franchise. Unlike previous FromSoftware games, Sekiro is a single-player game that does not also have a multiplayer focus. Players take on the role of a warrior seeking to rescue his master and get revenge on his arch nemesis.
As the “one-armed wolf,” the protagonist uses his shinobi prosthetic tools to unlock new actions and attacks. Sword Arts supplement regular sword attacks as special moves that will destroy enemies. The protagonist’s arm can be switched between different tools to exploit enemy weaknesses while a grappling hook adds a further layer to traversal and exploration. Players can also resurrect on the spot after death, creating a tactical retreat or a way to trick an enemy to go on the offense.
“We can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice,” said Steve Young, CRO at Activision. “Fans will get a taste of the multiple tools available for the prosthetic shinobi arm this week at Gamescom, and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500s Sengoku Japan when the game launches on March 22, 2019.”
Also announced was the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice collector’s edition. This edition features a 7″ shinobi statue, a SteelBook for the game, a collectible art book, a map, a digital soundtrack, and replica game coins.
