Fans of Dark Souls and Bloodborne have been ever so patient waiting for the next game by FromSoftware, and they won’t have to wait much longer. Coming very soon to every console is “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice”, which takes the concepts popular from their previous games and throws it into feudal Japan, along with some new mechanics that will add some dynamism to the gameplay. Today, we have our first look at the story via this new trailer released on the Playstation channel.
Check out the video below:
Here is the official synopsis from Activision, publisher of the game:
Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, and published by Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person, action-adventure game with RPG elements. The single-player game puts players in the protagonist role of a hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis. 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.
In the game, players come face-to-face with larger than life foes; unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities to blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head-to-head combat in a bloody confrontation.
Take revenge. Restore your honor. Kill Ingeniously.
FromSoftware is best known for Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne, essentially pioneering a new genre of ultra-hard controller-breaking and blood pressure rising games.
The game will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam on March 22.
