After word of an update was announced back in July, we haven’t heard much on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice until now. As a refresher, the update will be available on October 28 and all of the changes will also be available in the Game of the Year Edition.

The free update will include many new features and content. Reflection of Strength allows players to rematch with bosses that have previously been defeated. A boss rush mode will be included as well titled Gauntlets of Strength.

Remnants is a new way to share your experience with other players online. Players will be able to record up to 20 seconds of gameplay and then share it along with a message to the rest of the community. Push Square noted that it might be an evolution of the messages that can be found in Bloodborne and Dark Souls.

New outfits are also coming to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. At Sculptor’s Idols, players will be able to utilize some of the alternative outfits that have been unlocked by beating the game or completing achievements in the new Gauntlets of Strength mode.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

The new update will be available to download on October 28 at 10 am PDT/5 pm GMT for free.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is currently available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. There has not been any word on if the game will receive next-gen enhancement, but the game will still be backward compatible with the Xbox Series X|S and PS5.
