What Can We Expect from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice?
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a single-player adventure with plenty of action set in Japan. The timeline is the Sengoku period, and you will be playing as a shinobi whose lord was kidnapped by a samurai. During that attack, you lose a hand, but you managed to get a prosthetic instead. The prosthetic allows you to install gadgets and tools on it with the goal of making it easier to get your revenge.
You are probably wondering whether the game will be similar to the Dark Souls franchise. There might be some similarities, but differences are obvious. Sekiro doesn’t feature any RPG or multiplayer elements since it is an exclusively single-player game. The game will be played from a third-person perspective. You will have the chance of utilizing stealth abilities and using your katana to kill opponents with a single hit.
You can pre-order Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice today via its official website. The price of a standard edition is set at $59.99 while the collector’s edition is charged $89.99. The website also allows you to stay tuned with the news regarding the game.
