Activision has announced the release date for FromSoftware’s upcoming title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, as well as unveiling a collector’s edition for the game.
Announced at E3 2018, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice showed a complete departure from the dark medieval world found in their Dark Souls series for something a little more Eastern. While we haven’t heard much on the game over the past couple of months, Activision has come out swinging at Gamescom this week with a release date.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be launching on March 22, 2019.
In addition to the release date, Activision has unveiled some information about the game’s protagonist who is also known as the “one-armed wolf”. Players will be able to reconstruct their character with a series of prosthetic tools that’ll unlock actions such as charge attacks and much more.
The game will also feature a selection of special Sword Arts accompanying their regular attacks allowing them to weaken their foes before delivering the final blow. Oh, and the game features a resurrection mechanic that’ll have players resurrecting on the spot.
“We can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice,” said Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision. “Fans will get a taste of the multiple tools available for the prosthetic shinobi arm this week at Gamescom, and will be able to fully dive into the brutal, dark world of 1500s Sengoku Japan when the game launches on 22 March 2019.”
Finally, there’s the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition that’s available to pre-order right now. It’ll offer the full gam as well as a 7” Shinobi Statue, SteelBook, Artbook, a map, digital soundtrack, and some replica game coins.
