Players will discover an all-new gaming experience in Sekiro:
Shadows Die Twice as they take on the role of the “one-armed
wolf.” As the game’s sole protagonist, the wolf is willed to obey and
protect by using his newly acquired shinobi prosthetic arm to restore
his honor, rescue his master known as The Divine Heir, and exact revenge
on his enemy at all costs. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice offers
reward-based exploration as players uncover new items, meet new
characters, encounter hidden challenges, and learn more about the rich
lore within the game – all taking place across a detailed world filled
with beautiful vistas, unique weaponry, and larger-than-life foes.
“Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a game set in Japan’s Sengoku era
and portrays the great battle faced by a lone, one-armed shinobi.
Withered and ruined landscapes combined with a vibrant color palette
make for a game world that is true to the FromSoftware style, in which
the player is always one step away from death. It is our hope that new
and old fans alike will enjoy our shinobi’s journey; rich with intense
and dynamic combat,” said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President of FromSoftware
and Director of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Published by Activision*, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision
Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice keeps
true to FromSoftware’s legacy of challenging yet rewarding gameplay, and
offers unique combat that emphasizes patience, technique and creativity.
Players will learn to embrace the posture system, which focuses on
deflecting attacks, while simultaneously being defensive and aggressive.
Resurrection gives the opportunity for either tactical retreat or enemy
deception to go on the counter-offensive. The shinobi prosthetic, which
can be outfitted with a variety of attachments such as the grappling
hook, loaded axe, and flame vent, brings an entirely new dimension to
the gameplay as it enables players to exploit enemy weaknesses.
