Why You Should Be Excited to Play Sekiro on Friday

We’ve had two amazing Fridays in a row for gaming and were about to get a third. First, Devil May Cry 5 and then The Division 2 just a few days ago. Now, for the third week in a row, another one of our top picks of 2019 is set to release: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Sekiro launches on 22nd March, bringing more heart-pumping shinobi action than you can shake a katana at. Here’s why you should be excited to play this new action-adventure masterpiece.

What Is The Story In Sekiro:
Shadows Die Twice?

FromSoftware, the creators of the Dark Souls series, bring you an all-new story and world to explore in this action-adventure. You’ll play as a battered and broken shinobi warrior known as the “one-armed wolf”. As the story begins, you find yourself on the brink of death, but today is not the day you’ll die.

The time has come to hone your skills, reclaim your honour and take vengeance on those who betrayed you. Set in a beautiful reimagining of Sengoku Japan in the 1500s, Sekiro will put you in the middle of a constant battle between life and death.

Your Mission: Vengeance And Restoring Your Honour

Your mission is what keeps you alive. You were charged with protecting the descendant of an ancient and powerful bloodline and you failed. After leaving you nearly dead, the ruthless Ashina clan and hordes of other monstrous enemies will attempt to stand in your way as you seek to rescue this young master and regain your honour.

Stealth, Ninja Combat and Prosthetic Tools

Tight, intricate combat is at the heart of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. As the one-armed wolf, you’ll wield an arsenal of ninja techniques, combat acrobatics and vicious prosthetic tools. If you’ve played the Dark Souls and Bloodborne games, you know that FromSoftware is a master of refined swordplay action.

In Sekiro, stealth is much more of a focus and a vital tool in your shinobi toolbox. Eavesdrop on conversations or creep up behind your enemies to execute deadly backstab attacks. In Sekiro, you can kill before they even know you’re there.
