Coinciding with its first hands-on availability to the public at Gamescom, Activision has finally released the first official gameplay footage of FromSoftware’s next action title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Most of this gameplay is meant to show you many of the new aspects of Sekiro compared to FromSoftware’s past games. Being able to jump around and slingshot your way to higher ground is drastically different than before and adds a whole new level of verticality and planning to the game. This footage also showcases the ability to use stealth to take down enemies as well as an extended look at the combat stylings you’ll become familiar with over the course of the game.

It’s also worth mentioning that this is the same gameplay that I saw played in front of me in a meeting at E3. The only difference is that my demo ended with the presenters showing me one of the game’s many bosses. Still, this video is basically identical to what I saw so if you read my preview of the game after E3 and were wondering about where my impressions came from, then here you go.

The new gameplay footage is attached below and I highly suggest that you check it out. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is slated to launch on March 22, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
