In an exclusive coverage by a certain gaming publication, it featured some new gameplay of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It showed the new location called Hirata Estates.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice video featuring Hirata Estates
The main character in the video approaches the Hirata Estates from an elevated plane and then quickly descends towards the enemies below with the help of the grappling hook. Dan Tacka and Suriel Vazquez, commentators on the footage, talk about it with their first impressions.
It was made clear that game developer FromSoftware will be relying all the time on enclosed corridors for sneak attacks from hidden enemies. The grappling hook will be the most important tool to use in the whole game.
The footage confirmed that the main character can swim and in a fast pace too. Most of the movement in the game is actually way better compared to its predecessors: Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
The Hirata Estates is actually not an area found by completing the main questline in the game. It can actually be accessed by a magical bell. There are several mini-bosses in this location and there is a boss that looks like a butterfly hag.
The game will launch on March 22. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
