This week is the launch of FromSoftware’s new IP Sekiro Shadows Die Twice and they’re not going to let you forget. With just days away, they release a new trailer concentrating on a combination of story, the prosthetic arm, combat and progression.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Gameplay Trailer Released
The latest trailer combines a number of areas that has been covered in previous trailers but this time goes into a little more detail in terms of combat mechanics. It firstly outlines the story behind Sekiro, as he is taken in by the The Owl, later gaining a new master, a young boy known as “The Divine Heir”. Appointed to him to protect as he is part of a rare bloodline, meaning he is hunted by the Ashina clan.
The video goes on share more about the Prosthetic Arm that Sekiro uses, and can be used with a range of tools or weapons which include grappling hook, axe, spear and Flame Vent. Each providing versatile ways to fight an enemy. You can also use Shuriken or Fire Crackers to aid you in confusing or stunning your opponent. We also get a see the Loaded Umbrella in action, which is whipped out at a moment’s notice.
The trailer lets us observe more of the combat that players will face, putting emphasis on the importance of strategy in this shinobi game. What works in one fight will not necessarily work in another. Using deflection is one option in fighting an enemy, wearing down their posture until the opportune moment presents itself, letting you inflict a shinobi Deathblow.
FromSoftware also shares more about Resurrection in Sekiro, while death is inescapable in some fights, the way it is treated in the game has its consequences. Once killed, Sekiro becomes vulnerable, making it possible for him to lose important resources or even other possible outcomes which could prove detrimental.
