Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Looks Brutal and Awesome in 16 Minutes of Gameplay

Watch a novice ninja try his hardest to "git gud" in the latest game by the team of sadists behind the Dark Souls series, Demon's Souls, and Bloodborne.

FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice debuted the first look at its gameplay at Gamescom 2018, and DualShockers was allowed to record a nice chunk of gameplay from the PC version of the game.

The demo allowed me to go toe to toe with a few rank-and-file enemies armed with a variety of weapons, and two minibosses.

The game actually felt a bit easier than the Souls series, at least in pure brutality. That being said, skills play a larger role in swordplay, with blocking and blade clashes becoming much more important, and the apparent lower difficulty is mostly due to the fact that stealth is a very powerful new tool at our disposal.

Suffice to say, I enjoyed the game a lot. 

You can enjoy the gameplay below, and see me gradually git gud (ok, ok, closer to half-decent). If you want to see more, you can check out a smaller chunk of gameplay directly from Activision.

The game releases on March 22nd for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
