From Software has shown their Shadows Die Twice at the E3 2018 conference by Microsoft. You can view the reveal trailer below.
Not what i was expecting from Fromsoftware but it looks fantastic, the movement/grappling looks so slick and i like the brighter but still gritty visual design.
Day one purchase for the Xbox One X best version for sure!
Haha don’t get me wrong, I’ll be playing Bloodborne 2 as well, assuming it actually exists. Would be nice if it came to Xbox as well though since my PS4 Pro isn’t nearly as powerful, and the controller is trash. Bloodborne is a good enough game to buy a PS4 for. Was a little worried with Bloodborne being only on PS4 that this game had a possiblity of being there too, glad to see it on Xbox!
@skull521 No that would be the pc version..... Like every multiplatform game.
Sony owns the Bloodborne IP, you wont see it on Xbox or PC
Honestly, this is close to my dream game. It seems to combine what I love from two of my favorite franchises--Tenchu and Dark Souls--into one incredible game. I love stealth, I love deep challenging combat, I love the mystical feudal Japan setting. Yeah, this is more exciting than Bloodborne to me. It hits all the right notes. And it being available on the PC is brilliant. Now I can be free from the low stuttery framerates and play it with improved visuals and fidelity.
With that controller? Chill.
"looks 10x better than bloodborne" Shame, must be like a stake through the heart for you knowing such a masterpiece like bloodborne is a PS4 exclusive. Hopefully bloodborne 2 will be announced and im holding thumbs that it will drive you mentally insane, resulting in you being admitted to a mental institution where you belong lol, which will be awesome because then we can finally not see your worthless, brain cell killing comments on here as well:)
Yeah, I was not expecting the Japanese setting. Almost like FromSoftware is looking Nioh right in the eye, and saying like, "...yeah, what of it?" Looks really, really awesome to me, personally.
Well, after the first Shadows Die Twice trailer I was nearly certain it was set in feudal Japan. I just wasn't sure whether it would be a Tenchu revival or a new IP altogether.
@19 seconds I was like...Nioh?!? That’s one of my armors, heh Still surprised Activision’s getting in on the Soulsbornes. It’s such a departure.
Yeah, that caught me off guard. But there's money in Souls games, so I guess it makes sense.
Yup that is the only thing that worries me. I have full confident in From Software but Activision not so much. But I would love to be proven wrong. Also this may be a dumb question but is this Xbox exclusive or will it be on other platforms? I am pretty sure since Activision is producing it will be on multiple platforms. If not then I will definitely be borrowing my friend's Xbox.
It’s on PS4 too, no worries. Big PS4 logo pops up at the end, bottom middle of the screen.
As I expected, it's not BB2. Consider me hyped! I love japanese folklore.
Yet.... Sony’s is tomorrow...😉
I'm expecting DMC5!
It looks INCREDIBLE!
I'll be buying this day 1 for PS4.
Day one for me on Xbox
Day one for me on PC. Then I'll probably get it for my PS4 Pro later on just to support the developer, help the game succeed, and send the message that we want more games like this.
Day 1 for me on switch /s
The resurgence of samurai games makes me believe that Onimusha is making a comeback. This one in particular gives me that Tenchu vibe which makes it unique with that Soulsborne gameplay. I was expecting Bloodborne 2 to be announced at Sony's presser really, but this one looks awesome. This and Ghost of Tsushima will definitely scratch that samurai itch I got since Nioh!
"This one in particular gives me that Tenchu vibe which makes it unique with that Soulsborne gameplay." Good combat was the one thing Tenchu lacked. With this being from FROMSOFT, I get the feeling that the combat will be hard enough to encourage stealth where possible but fun enough to not be game breaking when open combat becomes necessary. The thing is, they showed as much stealth as they did action, so its kinda hard to tell where they are going with this one.
This seems to have a tighter more focused story than the Souls games as well.
@morganfell, what you said rings true, though it makes me feel a little alienated since I have become accustomed to the way Soulsborne narratives have been told--you know less handholding. Still, this is cool!
I don't think there is more handholding but rather more character background, more reason to get you to invest in your actions. There seems to be a frame work to the action. My problem with past souls games is my character just seemed to be a nobody. A blank slate. For people likl me that enjoy story driven experiences this is quite welcome.
looks intersting. still looks like a Soulsbourne-style game with enhanced mechanics
Looks amazing, but I’d prefer a bloodborne 2. Nioh has this style covered
Nope. Nioh's combat is awesome (the best in the genre in my opinion) but it doesn't do stealth or traversal like this game. I vastly prefer what this game seems to be over Dark Souls or Bloodborne, as much as I loved those games.
Best thing shown and I'm pretty sure nothing will top it in Xbox conference.
Absolutely the best thing shown, shame the crowd whooped and hollered more for generic titles.
surprised by activisoon publishing
Same here. I'm a bit nervous about that but i looks great for sure.
Looks better than Nioh.
Looks great. Can't wait.
Pass. No thanks.
You so lame
It's not an exclusive right, so you need to downplay it and act like it doesn't interest you. Aren't you one of those guys always downplaying The Witcher 3 too? blackblades is right, that's lame.
Sigh... i thought onimusha.. please capcom
A lot of uptake on the Japanese themed games more recently, and i like it, just a little worried for Nioh :P can't wait to see Ghost of Tsushima tomorrow.
Hell yeah. With Sekiro Shadows Die Twice and Ghost of Tsushima making appearances, this year's E3 is already the best E3 for me that I can ever remember. I'm insanely hyped for both games. And getting Nioh last year was a treat. I'm really happy about the revival of Japanese themed games. I've been hoping for this for years.
Hopefully Activision doesn't taint from. Looks amazing though!
So basically it's Samurai Souls. I'm pretty hype for it considering Nioh didn't really fill that void for me.
Love it,for me the best of the show along with Cyberpunk.
My inner BloodBorne hype, how dare you. Yet.. looks dope? I am so conflicted.
This was my favorite announcement hands down, I thought it was Onimusha for a minute.
Oh my god this looks amazing. The combat looks fast and fluid. I'm absolutely interested in the world too which is what Fromsoft does a great job at. One of my most anticipated games for 2019 now.
This and Cyberpunk 2077 were the stars of this MS conference, everything else was kinda meh I think, still I have to give credit to MS for trying to show more single player experiences than those effing annoying MP games.
So many hack and slash games this gen. Love it.
That was fantastic but I thought they said they wanted to get away from the Souls style gameplay. Still buying it day 1.
Looks pretty badass
Im still in shock how did Activision get to be with this game!If From Software is the IP author this game was most likely pitch to Bandai Namco,Sony...how did Activision got this makes my head spin.
I never cared for these SoulBourne type of games because the attacks, camera angles and movement aren't at all cinematic. THIS looks like the first BB type of game I'll buy because they are ACTUALLY giving it flare, as opposed to the usual stiff, archaic animations. Substance is great, but finally....this genre has been given some style.
Instantly smiled when the gameplay kicked in. I love the character design and dig the narrative shown thus far. This'll be a must have.
They want to shut down Nioh huh?
60fps done correctly here. Most games just make it too fast and everything looks like its running in fast forward. They took the time to extend the animations here. Day 1 PS4 Pro purchase for me. Well done.
When I started watching the trailer, thought for sure it would be Onimusha remastered HD in 4k... lol Still excited for the game tho, MS E3 way better than last year..
Did I see Activision publishing? Shit.
This game has me so excited. Seeing it and knowing who it's coming from (Software). It's all about the pedigree.
Playstation had Nioh and now Ghost of Tsushima and Sekiro. Playstation is definitely the best place to play.
