Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is From Software's Samurai Action Game, Coming in 2019

Eido-n't believe it.

From Software and Activision made a surprise announcement at today's Xbox Press Conference after announcing the two are working together on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Microsoft premiered the first real look at Shadows Die Twice during today's Xbox presser. The new game developed by From Software is set in a Japanese setting, a departure from the western medieval fantasy of the Soulsborne universe. Check out the debut trailer below.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was first revealed at The Game Awards 2017, though the cryptic teaser didn't reveal much other than that it was a From Software project. The studio has become one of the most critically-acclaimed developers after a string of hardcore action RPGs like Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

We expect to see more of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice later this week so check in with our E3 2018 guide for all the latest details and updates.
