If Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice wasn't hard enough for you as is, then FromSoftware has good news for you. A special update for Sekiro is due out later this year on October 29, and will add a special boss rush mode to the brutal action game.
FromSoftware announced the news in a special "thank you" message to fans of the game earlier today. "Rematch previously defeated bosses in single and consecutive battles. Extraordinary foes that once stood in the way of victory can be fought again and again to your heart's content," the update reads.
This sounds absolutely brutal, especially if you're going to fight infamous titans like Genichiro and Isshin Ashina, or the Guardian Ape's many forms. I look forward to seeing who among the Sekiro community can put together the longest boss rush streak.
Additionally, there's an online function coming to the game for the first time. Sekiro quite famously launched without any online component whatsoever, a stark contrast to the way messages are left by players in Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Now, you'll be able to record up to 30 seconds of your gameplay, and share it along with a message for other players to learn from.
Finally, there's a few new looks for the titular protagonist. Sekiro will be able to dress up in several new looks when the update arrives, including Old Ashina Shinobi, and Tengu. You'll have to meet certain in-game conditions to unlock these new outfits, though.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is actually slated to make its way to Google Stadia later this year. There's no release date yet for the port, but we wouldn't be surprised if the Stadia version ends up releasing on October 29, the same day as the new update.
