Activision has officially announced the launch date for the highly-anticipated new game from FromSoftware – March 22, 2019! Additionally, a Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition was announced, which is packed with collectible items like a gorgeous, highly-detailed 7” statue of the Shinobi protagonist from the game. The Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition is available to pre-order starting today in select markets, and digital pre-orders for the game will also kick-off today at select retailers worldwide.
The Collector’s Edition includes the following:
New gameplay details about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice reveal that the prosthetic tools belonging to the “one-armed wolf” protagonist can be reconstructed to unlock new actions such as powerful charge attacks. These attacks allow the player to broaden their approach to defeat their foes. Players can also equip and switch between a variety of unique Prosthetic Tools to find the weakness of a formidable enemy. Additionally, tools such as the Grappling Hook can be utilized to bring an extra dimension to exploration and traversal throughout the world of the game.
The core combat in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is measured by an intense clash of steel in sword combat. Players will take command of special Sword Arts to supplement their regular attacks, and tear down enemy defenses before sealing the final blow. But those same enemies will be trying to land deadly blows of their own, and you might find yourself quite dead. Thankfully you have another tool you can utilize: Resurrection. Used as an opportunity for a tactical retreat or to deceive an enemy and go on the counter-offensive, this new combat strategy allows players to resurrect on the spot, even after a hasty death.
We’ll be checking out Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at gamescom this week and getting our hands on the game for the first time. Stay tuned for more!
