Game Overview

Sekiro Game Overview

FromSoftware, the makers of the acclaimed Dark Souls and Bloodborne games has worked with Activision to release an exciting new game that takes place after the Sengoku period in Japan.


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes place in the Tohoku region and follows fictional events during the period of warring states. The main character is an assassin who has lost his arm, having what is called a “ninja arm” grafted in its place. As a result, he is called the “one-armed wolf” Sekiro.


Plucked from the battlefields during the Sengoku period when he was just a child, Sekiro is a shinobi who goes on a quest for revenge on the samurai who kidnapped his lord and severed his left arm.

Taken from Activision’s website:

“In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf”, a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death. Bound to protect a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, you become the target of many vicious enemies, including the dangerous Ashina clan. When the young lord is captured, nothing will stop you on a perilous quest to regain your honor, not even death itself. Explore late 1500s Sengoku Japan, a brutal period of constant life and death conflict, as you come face to face with larger than life foes in a dark and twisted world. Unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head to head combat in a bloody confrontation. Take Revenge. Restore your honor. Kill Ingeniously.”
