E3 2018: FromSoftware Unveils Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at Xbox Briefing

During Microsoft E3 2018 Xbox Briefing, FromSoftware revealed Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the studio's first original IP since Bloodborne in 2015 and the full title of the game teased by the studio at last year's The Game Awards show.

Sekiro will be published by Activision, indicating a multiplatform release even though Microsoft got dibs on the world premiere at its E3 press conference. The newest game from the "Soulsborne" franchise creator seems cut from the same third-person-action cloth as Dark Souls and Bloodborne, set in what appears to be feudal Japan.

Players control a samurai from an important bloodline who has been resurrected to enact revenge. The reveal trailer indicates a fast pace a step or three beyond Bloodborne's frenetic combat, as well as a bevy of weapons such as a whip and—no surprise—swords.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is being developed by Activision and will be released sometime in 2019.
