Today, during the PlayStation LineUp Tour at Tokyo Game Show, a new trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was shown.
The beginning of the trailer shows the protagonist, the character players will take control of, lying lifelessly on the floor. It then transitions quickly into gameplay flaunting the game’s traversal mechanics like the wall jump and the grapple hook.
We also see some combat, which deviates from the systems we are used to seeing in From Software’s previous titles like Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Instead of using stamina to dodge enemy attacks, a new mechanic known as posturing is introduced. You will choose a stance and try to disrupt your opponent’s posture in order to land a coup de grace.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was teased during the Game Awards last year. At Microsoft’s E3 press briefing, the game was revealed along with a trailer. In August, Activision (the game’s publisher) released the first official gameplay footage which was the same gameplay we saw during E3. You can check out our preview to see what we think of it so far.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 22, 2019.
