Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Update 1.04 Fixes Blazing Bull Boss Fight

From Software’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice received a silent update over the weekend which addresses issues in the Blazing Bull boss fight. Sekiro fans will know how hard the Blazing Bull boss fight is. One of the reasons why it is so difficult is that Blazing Bull differs from other boss fights in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

The boss also serves as a fresh change of pace from the strategic enemies players come across before the Blazing Bull. He is mindless and will take advantage of every opportunity to attack you. The difficulty was so much that many players found themselves wondering how to defeat the Blazing Bull.

After the previous Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice 1.03 update, many players reported encountering problems during the Blazing Bull boss fight. There were several issues reported regarding Vitality / Posture.

Of course, FromSoftware was quick to send out a Tweet letting fans know about the problem and that they are doing everything they can to come up with a solution.

The solution was a silent update Activision and From Software released just yesterday without any prior notice. Perhaps the reason for this was that since the issue was minor and didn’t need a huge update, FromSoftware didn’t want to make any fuss about it.

FromSoftware also posted the release notes on their website regarding the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice update version 1.03.

Release Notes:
