During its E3 press conference, Microsoft teased the next game from the studio behind Dark Souls and Bloodborne: It’s called Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. If you’re familiar with FromSoftware’s previous work, you have a good idea of what to expect here. The beauty of ancient Japan is portrayed in a way that’s dark and brooding, yet still lovely. There’s also a ton of blood and gore, as the main character, a ninja with a powerful prosthetic arm, sets out on a path of revenge.

“Looks like death is not your fate just yet,” an ominous voice proclaims.
Unfortunately, the trailer Activision and From Software showed during the Xbox event didn’t provide a ton of detail about gameplay, other than there’s loads of sword fighting, grappling hook acrobatics and some huge bosses. We’re sure to find out more this week at E3, including what the heck you’re fighting for. What we do know is that the game will arrive in 2019.
