Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is a game that requires little introduction and so it is not a difficult task to estimate the level of anticipation, for this upcoming title. That is why fans will not spare even a moment if any type of details pops up, regarding it and apparently it has.
According to the producer at Activision, Robert Conkey for the Dark Souls series fans, this game will be an “immediate familiarity” for them.
Shadows Die Twice made a really good appearance at Gamescom 2018, there speaking with Shacknews the producer of the game shed light on the combat, weapons, and how the character progression works in Serkiro Shadows Die Twice, and in particularity, he compared it to FormSoftware’s Souls series.
Conkey relating to the Souls series said that fans will clearly notice, how the characters and enemies move and will find it quite similar to Dark Souls.
If you’ve played Dark Souls, you’re going to feel some immediate familiarity with how the characters move, how the enemies move, and things like that.
However, he also added that for the fans it would also be a little difficult, in order to immediately adapt to the playstyle because for a lot of players it would be, a kind of refined version of the game style they already are familiar to. In fact, it would be more of a learning curve for them.
But there’s going to be a large learning curve. […] It’s funny because a lot of players who are used to those titles have a pretty tough time at first because there are so many new things to get used to. Robert Conkey said.
Now when he was asked the question regarding the game’s similarity with the Soul’s series, he immediately responded saying that both of the games are pretty different. However, he said that since there are a lot of new features and changes in style, these game are pretty different.
Like the attack in mid-air, really changes the dynamic of the combat. Still, he also added that for the Souls fans, Serkiro Shadow Die Twice will certainly feel a lot similar.
Following that the producer also shed light on some details regarding the moves and abilities in the game. The loaded axe which you must have seen in the new trailer and the sword that can be set on fire. As well as the shurikens, which serve in a from of ranged attack options.
Talking about the game’s player progression he said:
more centered around gaining and upgrading your arm tools as well as new abilities for your character.
With all that said, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is an amazing title in the works, in which its Resurrection Mechanics are one of the aspects, which will certainly not seize to amaze the fans.
