The Wolf is happy.
Activision and FromSoftware have announced that Sekiro Shadows Die Twice has sold more than a whopping five million units. To commemorate, they will be releasing a massive free update that will add three new features: a boss rush mode that will let players replay any boss in the game; new costumes for the game’s protagonist; and a way to send online messages to help other players, similar in style to other Soulsborne games.
Sekiro’s new boss rush mode will let players battle boss-level enemies individually or consecutively in the Reflection of Strength and Gauntlet of Strength modes, respectively.
Players can also change the Wolf’s appearance with three new outfits, two of which are Old Ashina Shinobi and Tengu. Two of these new outfits can be unlocked via the Gauntlet modes, while the third will be unlocked by beating the game.
Last but not least, the update will add a new feature called Remnant recordings. These recordings of gameplay, up to 30 seconds long, will send a phantom-like version of the Wolf to other players’ games and can be paired with a message.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice’s free update will be released on 29 October 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The update will also coincide with the game’s launch on Google Stadia.
