The update is expected to release on October 29 for all platforms and will introduce fresh gameplay features and cosmetic items. Leading the new features are the Reflections Of Strength and Gauntlets Of Strength.
Reflections Of Strength, which can be accessed through any Sculptor’s Idol, will allow players to jump into rematches against any previously defeated boss. These battles will also act as training towards Gauntlets of Strength, additional single-life challenges that will test the player’s skills.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s update will also include Remnants, a feature that will allow players to record up to 30 seconds of gameplay. This allows gamers to show an epic takedown to others or warn of dangers ahead.
Similar to the message mechanic in the Dark Souls series, Remnants can also include text messages and uploaded online. Other players who view Remnants can choose to rate to recording, gifting the owner some health recovery in return.
Three new cosmetic items will also be available in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Two of the costumes can be obtained through completing Gauntlets of Strength and the third is rewarded after completing the game once.
FromSoftware recently announced it’s working on a Demon’s Souls remake. It has been confirmed that the game will feature “beautiful shadow effects and ray tracing” and that “players can choose between two graphics modes while playing: one focused on fidelity, and one focused on frame rate”.
