“Hesitation is defeat.” — Isshin, The Sword Saint.

The One-armed Wolf gains new opportunities to hone his craft.

Today, FromSoftware delivered a free update to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that includes new challenges, new unlockable outfits and new ways of interacting with the community. Read more about them here.

After downloading and installing this update, any of the Sculptor’s Idols can be used to rematch against defeated bosses in Reflection of Strength or begin a single-life trial boss rush via the Gauntlet of Strength mode.

It is here you should prepare to reach a new state of mind…

Genichiro Ashina, Father Owl and Sword Saint Isshin appear as bosses to face in the Gauntlet, but sporting different attack patterns from the main game. While they seem deceptively familiar, these battles will prove tricky for even the most skilled players.

The Gauntlet provides a fresh challenge, so prepare well, and see how long you can last.

There are also three new outfits that have been added to the game, including “Tengu” and “Old Ashina Shinobi.” These outfits can be unlocked by fulfilling certain in-game requirements. In addition, ready yourself for the new Remnants social feature, where you can record and upload feats of skill, or watch and rate remnants left by other players that can help you overcome the game’s toughest challenges.

This update is for the entire Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice community, fledgling and veteran warriors alike.  A download is required to receive the update.

If you don’t have Sekiro already, buy it here for the platform of your choosing – the PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro; Xbox One X (and other Xbox One devices); and PC via Steam –  or play it on Stadia.

For almost 600 pages of finely-detailed tactics for this game, be sure to obtain the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Official Game Guideavailable now.

Take Revenge. Restore your Honor. Kill Ingeniously.
