Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, FromSoftware’s new Dark Souls-style game set in feudal Japan, was just released on Friday, March 22. If you’re between consoles right now but still want to get in on the shinobi action, Newegg has you covered. The retailer is throwing in a free copy of the action-adventure game with the purchase of a new Xbox One console with promo code EMCTWVV56.

The code applies to both Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles, which are currently available at a $50 discount, as well as console bundles. The game retails for the standard $59.99, so you can save at least $110 with this deal. (You’ll save even more if you pick up a bundle with multiple games, like the Metro Exodus bundle.)

Newegg did not list an end date for the promotion, but indicates that it’s a “limited offer.”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice lives up to FromSoftware’s brutally hard reputation, but proves that the studio is capable of branching out. From Polygon’s review:

It’s a company known for making notoriously difficult games like the Dark Souls series and Bloodborne, and Sekiro shares that lineage. It’s full of masochistic challenges, but it’s also definitely not a Soulsborne game. It’s something new, something intriguing — and a brutal and definitive statement refuting the idea that FromSoftware is a one-trick pony.
