Take revenge. Restore your honor. Kill Ingeniously.
Developed by FromSoftware (Soul series) and published by Activison, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action-adventure game that will be released on the PS4 and XBox One next week. You play as a shinobi named Sekiro as he attempts to rescue his lord that was kidnapped by a samurai. The gameplay of Sekiro is what’s interesting. Strategy is key. You need to use different tactics against a variety of enemies. These enemies can use what is called a “perilous attack” they can’t be blocked. You have to decided, counter or retreat and prepare for a follow up attack.
After his defeat the “wolf (main character)” receives a prosthetic arm. This arm can be used to break shields, throw shuriken, deflect attacks, etc … You can use stealth as well. If you can go undetected it will allow you eliminate enemies quickly. Death is likely, but you can resurrect yourself. However, you will be vulnerable when you do. Winning battles will be how your character progresses. The game was based on the Tenchu series. The good news is that this game focuses on single-player instead of tacking on multi-player. However, FromSoftware created the difficult (in my opinion) Soul and Bloodborne series and it seems like the Sekiro will be taxing as well.
