From Software announced on their official Twitter that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be released March 22nd, 2019. This release will take place worldwide for PS4, Xbox One and PC. We also got our first look at the collector’s edition which you can check out after the jump below.
The pre-orders are live for the collector’s edition which boasts a good variety of physical collectibles as opposed to in-game cosmetics like we’re used to seeing in most upgraded editions these days. That steelbook looks especially sleek and things like maps and art books are always welcome. If the soundtrack is anything as impressive as previous From Software titles, the soundtrack inclusion will be pure gold. For the statue and trinket heavy collector, you’re covered too with a 7-inch statue and Sengoku era game coins.
Gamescom 2018 will be happening this week, August 21-25. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is among the playable titles at the event where fans will get their first chance to try out the title. This will hopefully lead to the first solid gameplay footage that we can expect since the reveal trailer back at E3. There was a closed door demo shown to press at E3, but we haven’t gotten any extended look at how the combat or the level design will function. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice features a grappling hook of sorts for level traversal, which means the world design will have to differ dramatically from other From Software titles. The combat is also largely different, with a stronger focus on perfect parrying rather than perfect dodging like the Souls series.
You can check that E3 trailer out below if you haven’t seen it yet, and stay tuned here for more coverage of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
