FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice coming from Activision

Dark Souls and Bloodborne creators team up with Activision for new game

FromSoftware’s next game is called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the developer is working with publisher Activision to bring the game out.

Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki is helming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which will give players control of a “hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis.”

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice debuted during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference today, offering a look at the intense action game. Sekiro will take place in the Sengoku period of Japan and looks to follow FromSoftware’s style of intense combat action and difficulty.

Shadows Die Twice was announced (or rather teased) at last year’s The Game Awards in the form of a painfully brief teaser. At the time, it wasn’t clear that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was the name of the game or a hint about what it was. Fans speculated that the game was a teaser for a Bloodborne sequel or a return to one of FromSoftware’s other games, like Tenchu, but it turns out it’s an original game.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is coming in early 2019 to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
