Return from death and take revenge on those who wronged you

Enter a dark and brutal new gameplay experience from the creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an intense, third-person, action-adventure set against the bloody backdrop of 14th-century Japan.  Step into the role of a disgraced warrior brought back from the brink of death whose mission is to rescue his master and exact revenge on his arch nemesis.

Exploring a vast interconnected world, you'll come face-to-face with larger than life foes and gruelling one-on-one duels. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic weapons and powerful ninja abilities to bring down your adversaries and combine steal and verticality to deal death from the shadows.

Key features

Deep, intense combat

Master in-depth sword combat, enhanced by prosthetic arm attachments that augment and change the way you fight.  Combine these skills with stealth and grappling hook traversal to overcome the toughest adversaries.

A story of betrayal

Become a highly talented shinobi - the 'one-armed wolf' - and, after suffering defeat at the hands of a shadowy Ashina samurai, reawaken to your fate, take back your master, and exact revenge on your enemy at all costs.

Rewarding exploration

Explore vibrant environments inspired by Japan's blood-soaked Sengoku period and make use of all of your tools to uncover secret areas, new items, optional character interactions, and hidden enemies.

Know your enemy

Dark, supernatural forces shape Sekiro's vision of Japan's embattled Sengoku-period - while expert swordsmen and archers swarm the Ashina lands, far greater dangers lie waiting to be discovered.

Lady Butterfly

Lose yourself in her illusion.

The Chained Ogre

Can you see the rage in his eyes?

The Great Serpent

Visit a den deep within the valley.
