‘Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’ Takes Players to Ancient Japan

Brian Linder

FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been revealed. The single-player, third-person adventure game allows players to carve their own clever path to vengeance in the role of the “one-armed wolf,” a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death.

Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, they become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop the wolf from embarking on a perilous quest to regain honor, not even death itself.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice features gritty gameplay with a focus on combat. Players can use vertical traversal, with head-to-head battles in a world filled with beautiful vistas, enormous castles, bizarre weaponry, and fearsome enemies.

The game takes place in late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a period of constant life and death conflict, as players come face to face with larger than life foes. They will be able to unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja with stealth.
