Basic System Mechanics
Both the hero and the enemy will have a “posture gauge.” This posture gauge can be filled by parrying attacks. Once the enemy’s gauge is full, Sekiro can then perform a deathblow which instantly kills the enemy, no matter their HP.
This marker indicates how alert an enemy is to the player. If an enemy’s sign is gray or yellow, it is easier to deal an instant kill attack.
|Gray||Beginning to notice peculiar movements|
|Yellow||Starting to look for the player|
|Red||Engaging in combat|
Similar to the bonfire in the Dark Souls series, the Sculptor’s Idol can be used to recover health and act as a checkpoint.
A system where the hero can resurrect himself by consuming a gauge filled up by defeating enemies. Resurrection can be done at any time, so use this mechanic strategically.
