Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki of FromSoftware, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice pits you, in the role of the “one-armed wolf”, against a legion of eldritch and ferocious enemies, as you embark on an unforgettable journey across feudal Japan in the late 16th century. This epic adventure is set in a dark and beautiful world, where intense swordplay is the only way to survive, and a complex but thoroughly rewarding combat system offers challenge around every corner. Filled with brutal enemies, intense sword combat, and engrossing vertical exploration, the game is now available globally for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro; Xbox One X (and other Xbox One devices); and PC via Steam.

Players will discover an all-new gaming experience in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as they take on the role of the “one-armed wolf.” As the game’s sole protagonist, the wolf is willed to obey and protect by using his newly acquired shinobi prosthetic arm to restore his honor, rescue his master known as The Divine Heir, and exact revenge on his enemy at all costs. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice offers reward-based exploration as players uncover new items, meet new characters, encounter hidden challenges, and learn more about the rich lore within the game – all taking place across a detailed world filled with beautiful vistas, unique weaponry, and larger-than-life foes.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a game set in Japan’s Sengoku era and portrays the great battle faced by a lone, one-armed shinobi. Withered and ruined landscapes combined with a vibrant color palette make for a game world that is true to the FromSoftware style, in which the player is always one step away from death. It is our hope that new and old fans alike will enjoy our shinobi’s journey; rich with intense and dynamic combat” said Hidetaka Miyazaki, President of FromSoftware and Director of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice keeps true to FromSoftware’s legacy of challenging yet rewarding gameplay, and offers unique combat that emphasizes patience, technique and creativity. Players will learn to embrace the posture system, which focuses on deflecting attacks, while simultaneously being defensive and aggressive. Resurrection gives the opportunity for either tactical retreat or enemy deception to go on the counter-offensive. The shinobi prosthetic, which can be outfitted with a variety of attachments such as the grappling hook, loaded axe, and flame vent, brings an entirely new dimension to the gameplay as it enables players to exploit enemy weaknesses.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available now for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC. Take Revenge. Restore your Honor. Kill Ingeniously.
