Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person action game from the acclaimed developers at FromSoftware. FromSoftware is the team behind games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a major departure in terms of storytelling. Your goal is to carve your own clever path to vengeance.

In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you step into the shoes of the "one-armed wolf" protagonist, a disgraced warrior rescued from the brink of death by a mysterious devotee. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the "Ashina" clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you, not even death itself.

The game is currently available for Xbox One and PC for $60. There isn't an expansion pass available for the title and it doesn't feature any microtransactions. If you love Dark Souls-like experiences, be sure to check this title out because it's absolutely spectacular!

In our review, we said, "It's definitely harder than Dark Souls, but the sense of satisfaction you feel after defeating powerful titans is a reward in itself. The more you play, the stronger you become." The Xbox One version currently sits at 92 on Metacritic, but may go higher as more reviews come in.
