FromSoftware has (finally) announced updates to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

In an announcement posted to the Sekiro website yesterday, FromSoftware announced several free additions to Sekiro_, including the ability to replay bosses, change your outfit, and leave online “remnants,” a system comparable to the message system that’s standard in FromSoftware’s other major franchise, “_Dark Souls”:/memes/subcultures/dark-souls.

We are humbled by all the #Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice players around the world! For your continued enjoyment, we will be releasing a small update on October 29, 2020 to challenge, help, and reward fans.
Free for all players. Learn more here

In typical FromSoftware fashion, the update left some details vague. For example, the update says a “Gauntlet of Strength” mode will be added to the game but doesn’t offer a description of what that means. Vaatividya, YouTube’s resident dulcet-toned FromSoftware expert, speculated that this may refer to a boss rush mode and further speculated that the update would bring a “no-death” challenge to Sekiro. He also pondered on the fate of Sekiro DLC or a potential sequel.

Since its release in March of 2019, there’s been no news on possible downloadable content or a sequel, both of which seem very possible considering the open-ended nature of the game’s “true” ending. Furthermore, Sekiro won Game Of The Year at the 2019 Game Awards and sold over 5 million copies, so the critical and commercial desire for more Sekiro content is clearly there.

Online, the announcement stoked the embers of fans desperately craving more Sekiro content.
