When FromSoftware are behind something, you can be sure it’ll be an experience you’ll want to take in. Today, as Gamescom rolls in to play, Activision have helped announce the launch date for the highly anticipated title – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Coming from Activision and FromSoftware is the third person action adventure, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Combining the action with RPG elements, this is a game where combat reigns supreme as Hidetaka Miyazaki delivers a single-player title that puts players in the protagonist role of a hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis. You will get to enjoy combining features, such as vertical traversal, with visceral head-to-head battle all in order to fulfil your destiny in a vast world filled with beautiful vistas, enormous castles, bizarre weaponry, and fearsome enemies.
Whilst all that sounds great, it’s the release date that we all want to know about and that has today been confirmed for 22nd March 2019, with the game releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Further to that from today, selected markets will be able to get their money in early with the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition, which is packed with collectible items. In fact, the following will all be included…
- Full Game
- 7” Shinobi Statue
- Collectible Artbook
- Digital Soundtrack
- Replica Game Coins
What’s more, should you be at Gamescom you’ll get the chance to go hands on with Sekiro. Whilst sampling the game’s rich sense of tension should drag many in, the unique and varied feature set is just as big a draw…
- Sword Combat: The core combat in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is measured by an intense clash of steel. Players will take command of special Sword Arts to supplement their regular attacks, and tear down enemy defenses before sealing the final blow.
- Shinobi Prosthetic: Players can equip and switch between a variety of unique Prosthetic Tools to find the weakness of a formidable enemy. Additionally, tools such as the Grappling Hook can be utilised to bring an extra dimension to exploration and traversal throughout the world of the game.
- Resurrection: Used as an opportunity for a tactical retreat or to deceive an enemy and go on the counter-offensive, this new combat strategy allows players to resurrect on the spot, even after a hasty death.
“We can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice,” said Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer 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 22 March 2019.”
