Activision have today announced the release date for FromSoftware’s upcoming action-adventures title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on March 22nd, 2019. Those who are in Gamescom this week will be some of the first people to get hands on with the game. There are some unique and varied features of the game, which include:

  • Sword Combat: The core combat in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is measured by an intense clash of steel. Players will take command of special Sword Arts to supplement their regular attacks, and tear down enemy defenses before sealing the final blow.
  • Shinobi Prosthetic: Players can equip and switch between a variety of unique Prosthetic Tools to find the weakness of a formidable enemy. Additionally, tools such as the Grappling Hook can be utilised to bring an extra dimension to exploration and traversal throughout the world of the game.
  • Resurrection: Used as an opportunity for a tactical retreat or to deceive an enemy and go on the counter-offensive, this new combat strategy allows players to resurrect on the spot, even after a hasty death.

Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision stated:

We can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Fans will get a taste of the multiple tools available for the prosthetic shinobi arm this week at Gamescom, and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500s Sengoku Japan when the game launches on 22 March 2019.

A Collector’s Edition is also available to pre-order which includes the following:

  • Full Game
  • 7” Shinobi Statue
  • SteelBook
