Sekiro’s Gamescom 2018 demo will let you play the following features (via Activision):
Sword Combat : The core combat in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is measured by an intense clash of steel. Players will take command of special Sword Arts to supplement their regular attacks, and tear down enemy defenses before sealing the final blow.
Shinobi Prosthetic : Players can equip and switch between a variety of unique Prosthetic Tools to find the weakness of a formidable enemy. Additionally, tools such as the Grappling Hook can be utilized to bring an extra dimension to exploration and traversal throughout the world of the game.
Resurrection : Used as an opportunity for a tactical retreat or to deceive an enemy and go on the counter-offensive, this new combat strategy allows players to resurrect on the spot, even after a hasty death.
The publisher also announced Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Collector’s Edition which comes with:
- Full Game
