Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – Gameplay Overview | PS4


Welcome to a vision of Japan unlike anything
you’ve experienced before. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
is set during the closing years of the Sengoku period. It’s a time of near endless
conflict and bloodshed. Journey into
this unforgiving world shaped by violence and discover what secrets await
in the shadows. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice follows the story of a shinobi known as The Wolf. As a young boy
roaming the battlefield, he’s taken in by The Owl. What’s the matter, stray? Nothing left to lose. The Wolf is assigned
to protect a new master known as The Divine Heir. You will pledge your life
in my service. As you command. The boy is the descendent
of a mysterious bloodline, making him the target
of the Ashina clan. Leave this to me. So the noble shinobi
stands in our way. You must never forget
the shinobi code. If your master is taken, bring him back at any cost. What is this? The Wolf’s prosthetic arm
changes how he fights. This mysterious shinobi tool
can be outfitted with an arsenal
of powerful items, like the grappling hook. Use it to explore new areas or gain a tactical advantage. Break shields
with the loaded axe, drag enemies closer
with the loaded spear, or set them ablaze
with the flame vent. Stun and confuse enemies
with shuriken and firecrackers, or deflect heavy attacks
with the loaded umbrella. Mix these powerful tools
with your sword, define new ways
to kill ingeniously, and tip the odds of the fight
your way. Combat in Sekiro:
Shadows Die Twice requires strategy,
and the same tactics won’t work against every enemy. A master shinobi must be
both aggressive and versatile. Deflection is just one way
to turn an enemy’s attacks into an opportunity. Each deflection will deal damage
to an enemy’s posture. Keep it up, and the enemy’s
posture will break, leaving them vulnerable. Use this critical moment
to land serious damage with a shinobi death blow. Enemies at times
will use perilous attacks that cannot be blocked. In these situations, you’ll need to make
a split-second decision. Will you risk great harm
to yourself and attempt
to counter the attack? Or will you use this moment
to fall back and prepare for your next move? Success against stronger enemies will come down to learning
their distinct tactics and responding with
your own unique offensive and defensive maneuvers. You’ll also find
that certain situations allow for a silent approach. Use your blade
for a quiet takedown. Or eavesdrop to gain vital
information about your enemies. In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you won’t survive
every encounter, but death is not always defeat. The Wolf has his limited ability to return from the dead
using Resurrection. After resurrecting,
The Wolf is vulnerable. If he’s killed, it will mean
losing valuable resources and potentially other,
more personal consequences. Performing a shinobi death blow or resting at a Sculptor’s Idol will allow The Wolf
to resurrect once again. [EXPLOSIONS] With each battle won, you’ll begin to unlock
new skills that help you fight and defend. You’ll discover shinobi tools
that expand the capabilities of your prosthetic arm and find materials
like gunpowder to upgrade them. Your journey into darkness will be fraught with challenge and surrounded by death. But if you execute
different strategies in battle and leverage the powerful tools
in your arsenal, you can rise to any challenge.
