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.

At Gamescom 2018, the publisher revealed that 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. Apart from that, a collector's edition was revealed which includes some coins and a statue.

A main mechanic in 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.

Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision, 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 this week at Gamescom, and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500's Sengoku Japan when the game launches."
