Not only that, but Sekiro is to receive a free update in October, which will implement a selection of exciting new modes and features. The first, called either Reflection of Strength or Gauntlet of Strength (the English translation on the site uses both titles), allows players to take on bosses they've beaten either individually or in sequence - effectively, a boss rush mode.
The free update for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice rolls out on October 29th. While Gauntlets of Strength look to be single -life challenges that will put your skills to the test. Of course, if you die, you start all the way back at the beginning of the gauntlet. With this new update, that will change with the addition of Wolf's outfits. "Whether you're familiar with Sekiro or have yet to try it, we hope you find some enjoyment from this update", From says. The other one you get by completing the game once.
Three new outfits are also going to be supplemented into the October update. "All outfits are purely cosmetic in nature: They are accouterments to your achievements within Sekiro", says FromSoftware. This is more or less the same thing as Dark Souls' "ghostlike apparitions" - players will be able to transmit ghostly images of themselves lasting approximately 30 seconds alongside a message. How to defeat a boss or some other feat of strength that can be uploaded for everyone else to watch. Fear not, the skins have zero gameplay effect and are just for show. If another player views and rates a Remnant, the owner will have their HP recover for free, saving them from using Sculptor's Idols or Healing Gourds.
It's nice to see that Fromsoftware is still providing updates for Sekiro, and have added the boss rush-lite more. Still, there's one piece that everyone is still waiting on and that's the eventual DLC that was teased in the good ending.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and soon to be on Google Stadia.
