Microsoft debuts FromSoft’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice FROM SOFTWARESekiro Shadows Die Twice

Unless From Software pops up again during Sony's E3 2018 press conference to explain how Bloodborne 2 is on its way, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is likely the only game we'll be getting from the Souls developers during E3 2018. This certainly looks more distinct from Dark Souls than Bloodborne, and with Dark Souls 3 moving to a more fast-paced style of combat similar to Bloodborne, From Software may be looking for a wholly original angle for its next series.

Sekiro is set in Japan in the late 1500s Sengoku period - a time of social upheaval and near-constant military conflict as the power of the central shogunate waned, and regional daimyos rose up to fill the vacuum.

The trailer actually shows gameplay, and it looks absolutely fantastic. You can check out the full trailer embedded above. And what appears to be a big ass snake.

There's no sign of a Steam page yet, but if you'd like to pre-order via Amazon, you can go ahead and do that here. Pre-orders are already live on Amazon priced at $29.99, indicating it's not a full-fat release.

The game seems to be very similar to what you'd expect from the team behind Bloodborne and Dark Souls, though it looks to expand your agility abilities, allowing you to grapple and flip around like a ninja.

Incidentally, the game is being published by Activision. It's slated for "early 2019", with a suggested retail price of $59.99. We'll surely have more to report on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice as details trickle out over the course of E3. Keep an eye on PCGamesN for more news coming out of E3, some of which may just include further Sekiro knowledge.
