Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was one of the surprise announcement at E3 2018 and it was developed by none other than From Software.
"the reasons why they settled on a partnership with Activision was because they would be able to provide a lot of support to their development and it could help them work on their titles in ways that could help them get new references or information from outside places. This is why they decided to settle with on a Western publisher after years of working with Japanese publishers like Bandai Namco and Sony."
Bring on the overpriced dlc!
because they're allergic to money i guess
That doesn't even make sense
makes sense for me, i don't buy activision games, i buy the ones that interests me (like actually this and spyro trilogy) only as a used copy
So then you're allergic to something with Activision's name on it. From Software isn't allergic to money. The game will sell regardless of whether you want it or not.
Activision won't tell them what to do so there is no need to be worried about them. Proof of this is that it's coming to Steam and isn't exclusively on Blizzard's launcher on PC like other games published by Activision these days.
It's not coming to battle.net because they don't own the game or company. They own destiny and they own call of duty. So naturally it is going to be on battle.net.
If this game helps them make other non-Activision games, then more power to them. It'll help them build their international network.
They saw that Bungie was able to release multiple games with virtually no content that then were finished with DLC packs and thought "hey that looks good to me!"
Well when I saw Activision I got a nice Tenchu vibe from it so I'm ok with it. Don't they still own Tenchu? Maybe there's going to be a tie in we don't know about yet.
Haha yeah, for us old time Tenchu fans it probably feels pretty familiar. As far as I understand it From Software has owned the rights to Tenchu ever since they bought them from Activision. It's interesting that they both were involved with the Tenchu series and now they're working together to bring Sekiro Shadows Die Twice to gamers.
I would love to see some kind of tie in with Tenchu. Beyond that I'm still hoping we'll one day see the return of Rikimaru and Ayame in a new adventure.
While the game looks promising - and it's From Software after all- wasn't the trailer kind of low-res on alot of textures ingame ?! It looked part PS3 and part PS4 game mixed up at quite a few scenes. It's possible games like God Of War and Detroit have spoiled me hehe. Ghost Of Tsushima is a day one and this game might come around the same time as Nioh 2 so I'm not sure From Software gets another day one buyer on this game. In the end I will own them all but I rate them 1) Ghost Of Tsushima 2) Nioh 2 3) Shadows Die Twice but it depends of how they (and other games) releases...
I can't agree. I didn't see any obvious low resolution textures, even though every game has some (yes, even God of War). Overall I thought it was easily From Software's best looking game yet. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Ghost of Tsushima are equal in terms of my anticipation. Nioh 2 is second. I simply think the former two games will have more depth to both the world and in terms of gameplay variety, as well as offer much richer visuals. Nioh does have incredible combat though. I'm excited for all three, simply put.
I saw the trailer on my friends (crappy??) PC but now I'm home and is watching a 1080p trailer on my 4k TV and it looks much much better. But still, if I look closely some parts seem to be lacking a little for a 2018 title but it probably just due to "work in progress" I guess. But with a HUGE backlog and all the great games that are coming in the next 6 months or so, I can wait until Shadows Die Twice is released and check out reviews and so on and decide later buy/no buy* ;) *no buy is probably more "buy real cheap on a summer/blackfriday/christmas-s ale" hehe The Backlogproblem™ ;)
You guys remember Ninja Blade? A remaster to that or sequel would be nice.
