Also releasing for PS4, Xbox One and PC, the update will allow players to take on previously defeated bosses in one-off battles accessible through any Sculptor’s Idol and tackle multiple bosses in single-life boss runs called Gauntlets.
The new messaging system, Remnants, will enable players to help one another overcome tricky obstacles or locate hidden locations by uploading 30 seconds of in-game activity accompanied by a written message for other community members to play back. If messages are watched and rated, the messenger’s HP will recover.
The update will also introduce three new outfits, including Tengu and Old Ashina Shinobi, two of which will be unlockable through Gauntlets, with the third available to players who have completed the game once.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sales have cleared five million units since the game’s March 2019 release, publisher Activision said on Wednesday.
