Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be immediately familiar to those who have played From Software's past action games, but unique in ways that should entice fans both new and old.
From Software's mysterious "Shadows Die Twice" project was officially unveiled today live on-stage at Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference. It seems like you'll be able to use stealth in a meaningful way, rather than just walking up behind someone for a free critical hit like in Dark Souls.
Being published by Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has an early 2019 release window and is headed for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with a $59.99 price tag. Miyazaki was conspicuous by his absence on Dark Souls II, widely regarded as the weakest of FromSoftware's recent releases, in comparison to the brilliance of Dark Souls I, III, and Bloodborne. Stay tuned for the start of E3 on June 12. Set in the re-imagined world of late 1500s Sengoku Japan; a brutal, bloody period of constant life-and-death conflict, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the "one-armed wolf", a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Supported platforms have yet to be announced.
