FromSoftware announce that Sekiro Shadows Die Twice will be receiving an update this October adding new content which includes new outfits, arena, remnants and more.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Free Update Adds Arena, Outfits and More

Sekiro is getting an update this October 29th, adding more to the shinobi action title. Details of what additions will come to the game have been outlined on Activision’s official blog. There will be several new features which include the ability to re-challenge bosses, tackle boss gauntlets, perform player movement recordings and more.

Arena & New Challenges

Players will be able to use The Sculptor’s Idols not only for a place to heal but also to take on new challenges with Reflections of Strength and Gauntlets of Strength. This place of reflection let’s the “one-armed wolf” relive memories, taking on a re-match against previous foes.

Reflections of Strength let’s players re-match against defeated bosses through the Sculptor’s Idol. There is also the addition of Gauntlets of Strength, a sort of arena mode which will pit players against a number of challenges. If you die, you will have to start over, making your way through the challenges all over again.

New Outfits

Sekiro will finally be able to adorn some new garb, with the addition of new outfit choices. There are three coming with the update which include “Tengu” and “Old Ashina Shinobi” styles. Two of these new outfits will need to be unlocked by completing Gauntlets, while the third outfit will be unlocked after beating the game once.

Outfits are purely cosmetic, there for you to show off your achievements and make you look a little cooler.

Remnants – Asynchronous Feature

Another new feature are player recordings, allowing players to record movements and text of them taking down an enemy that lasts up to 30 seconds. This can be then uploaded for other members in the community to playback and learn from others, and gain some major insight on how to take down a particular foe. From the image shown on the blog, this looks to be in the form of a Sekiro type shadow which you can watch play out the moves needed.

If your Remnant gets watched and rated by another community member, it will grant you free HP recovery, allowing you to jump back into the fight much quicker and without the use of the Sculptor’s Idol or using a consumable item such as the Healing Gourd.

Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is available to play on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game will also be coming to Stadia on October 29th.
