E3 2018: FromSoftware Unveils Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at Xbox Briefing

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice

Activision has announced Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for Xbox One during Microsoft's E3 2018 showcase, a samurai-based adventure developer by Dark Souls studio From Software. A slick new trailer for the game was shown during the Xbox briefing, showcasing brutal combat and swordplay.

I watched a demo of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in an Activision hotel suite this morning, and will have impressions for you later this week.

Sekiro E3

When the game was originally revealed during The Game Awards, it was thought that it could be a sequel to Bloodborne, the PlayStation 4 exclusive. Recent From Software projects, including the Dark Souls trilogy, were published by Bandai Namco.

The main character also has a prosthetic arm, swinging huge blades while using a hookshot type device to get in closer to enemies. That was one tool at least that was seen in the trailer, so it lends some credibility to the details. "With Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice many FromSoftware team members, including myself, are thrilled to be exploring themes of Sengoku Japan and ninja for the first time".
