Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the next game from the studio that brought us Dark Souls. FromSoftware’s new action game takes place during the Sengoku era of Japan. In it, you play a warrior who has set out on a dangerous quest to save his master from a powerful foe who the warrior and his mater have been battling for years. The warrior’s loss of a ligament means that some of his weapons and abilities come in the form of exchangeable prosthetics.
Regardless of what weapon you use, you’ll have access to a resurrect ability that will let you instantly revive yourself upon death. This is a far cry from the Dark Souls series which often punished the player for death and used death as a way to teach the player how the game’s mechanics – and the universe – really worked. It remains to be seen how Sekiro will retain the difficulty and mechanical mastery requirements of Dark Souls given that it sounds like the title won’t treat death as quite the roadblock that it was in Dark Souls.
We’re still waiting to hear more about this game, but for now, here’s everything else we know about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice:
