Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is less than a month away from launch. Developer From Software has revealed a few gameplay trailers but still, there is a lot of mystery around the game. Now, some new Sekiro Shadow Die Twice gameplay footage has leaked revealing EXP points meter and possibly a new Smoke ability.
The leaked Sekiro Shadow Die Twice gameplay footage has been taken down. However, one ResetEra user managed to grab a small clip from the video which you can see below.
It’s a short clip that reveals the protagonist stealth killing an enemy which results in the enemy exploding into smoke. It’s unclear if this an ability that allows players to keep their stealth kill streak going or a counter to players’ stealth attacks.
Given that how the player escaped, it’s most probably a skill to help players to keep their stealth streak going. The leaked Sekiro Shadow Die Twice gameplay also revealed the EXP meter indicating that the game will feature character progression much like Bloodborne and Dark Souls.
Furthermore, judging from fan comments Sekiro will also allow players to hold more than 15 White Spirit emblems. White Spirit emblems are required to be consumed in order to use Prosthetic tools.
Not only Sekiro is the first game from developer From Software to feature a direct story but, is also the first game to feature HDR. With the launch of PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, HDR has been a huge deal and developers are not going to ignore it.
Also, the game’s protagonist will have dialogues of his own. But don’t expect them to be elaborate as he will only say a few lines here and there. “He’ll say a few things here and there, but yeah, he won’t bore you to tears with constant monologues”.
Despite the game featuring a direct story, From Software has confirmed that the story will largely be a “fragmented experience”.
Having a fixed protagonist allows us to base the core story around him and the main characters around him. We hope that the initial story, at least from the outset, will be easier to grasp and understand. But our general philosophy hasn’t changed. It will still be a fragmented experience that the player will have to piece together themselves.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice is ab action adventure game in development at From Software. The game is scheduled to launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
