A new gameplay video for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is now out. It shows off many of the key elements of the game, including gorgeous environments, the deep and involved combat, and enemies big and small.
The PlayStation YouTube channel has released a new Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gameplay video. It contains about twelve or so minutes of footage; interestingly, it’s the exact bit that we got to play at this year’s Gamescom. And, yes, I am very salty watching the crew of PS Underground breeze through enemies that I barely managed to scratch. But, that’s besides the point. The video does a great job of showing off a lot of different gameplay features that I had no idea even existed, such as dodging into attacks and certain enemies being vulnerable to certain arm attachments.
There are several things that grab the most attention: the combat, the enemies (especially bosses), and the environments. The bosses, like in all From games, are imposing, terrifying creatures. The Corrupt Monk really stands out in its strange grace and grotesque beauty. Oh, and there’s also a gigantic snake that can kill you in an instant, so that’s kinda fun. The environments are as gorgeous as From has ever made, because this time around, the color palette is much larger than before. There are so many bright colors and deceptively serene vistas, it’s awesome. And, of course, the combat. It is similar to Soulsborne on the surface, but it has way more bells and whistles that completely changes the feel. I’m really looking forward to this one.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is coming out fairly early next year; on March 22nd, to be exact. You’ll be able to play it on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. While you’re waiting, you can check out the gameplay video below, as well as our Gamescom 2018 Sekiro gameplay impressions.
