At E3 2018, Microsoft showcased Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in partnership with Activision. The game is being developed by the creators of Dark Souls, FromSoftware, and looks unique and intriguing. Activision's Chief Revenue Officer Steve Young added, "We can't wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Fans will get a taste of the multiple tools available for the prosthetic shinobi arm... and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500's Sengoku Japan when the game launches."
Today, gamers got a better look at the world of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Activision released a new cinematic trailer which showcases war-torn Japan and how the protagonist overcomes desperation. Hopefully all of these characters will be properly explored in the game. We definitely want to know more about the mentor figure and how he fits into the plot.
A main mechanic in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the prosthetic arm belonging to the "one-armed wolf" protagonist. You can reconstruct it to unlock new moves like a powerful charge attack. At the heart of the gameplay is sword combat and "resurrection." Resurrection keeps the action flowing because you can revive on the stop. It's the complete opposite of Dark Souls.
At Gamescom 2018, the publisher revealed that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice would hit Xbox One and other platforms on March 22, 2019. The company confirmed that the game would be enhanced for Xbox One X, but we don't know in what capacity at the moment.
