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.
