Steel yourself, because Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the latest hard-as-nails adventure from the Dark Souls masters at From Software, is only a couple weeks away! The hype machine is definitely ramping up, as a number of new previews and some fresh footage has popped up online. First up, here’s a look at a new area, Senpou Temple, courtesy of the folks at GameSpot. Said temple is located in a dense, forested area that looks a lot more green and lively than most From Software stuff – we see some gory combat against a series of agile monks, a bit of stealth, and showdowns with a couple minibosses. Check it out, below.
Meanwhile, From Software also shared a glimpse at one of the game’s bosses – a giant grotesque-looking white serpent. Not looking forward to tangling with this guy!
Haven’t been keeping up with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice? Here’s a quick rundown of its backstory:
In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf”, a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you on a perilous quest to regain your honor, not even death itself.
Explore late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a brutal period of constant life and death conflict, as you come face to face with larger than life foes in a dark and twisted world. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head to head combat in a bloody confrontation.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice leaps onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 22. Are you sharpening your blade in anticipation?
