S E K I R O: S HADOWS D I E T WI C E FromSoft­ware pop­u­larised the genre of Souls- like games and blazed a trial for spin-offs such as Nioh and The Surge af­ter a wildly suc­cess­ful Dark Souls tril­ogy and the Gothic, Love­craftin­spired Blood­borne.

So, when it was an­nounced that the next game was not go­ing to be a Souls se­quel, it drove peo­ple mad. Sekiro: Shad­ows Die Twice is set in feu­dal Ja­pan in the late 1500s. You play as Sekiro—a dis­graced and dis­fig­ured shi­nobi who em­barks on a jour­ney to res­cue his young mas­ter, who’s been ab­ducted by a samu­rai. FromSoft­ware does away with tra­di­tional char­ac­ter cus­tomi­sa­tions to put gam­ing skills to the test.
