Is there a Sekiro Demo?

Players have been able to try the game at several game shows including Gamescom and Tokyo Game Show, and at special retailer store events organized by FromSoftware and Activision in Japan and the United Kingdom.

Press and Influencers have also been able to capture footage and share their impressions in advance.

More information can be found in the Alpha, Beta & Demo page.


Is Sekiro a Souls Game?

"Souls" and "Soulslike" games are an often-contended characterization, and the similarities or differences might be accepted as belonging or not depending on personal judgement. Sekiro is not a traditional RPG and puts emphasis on the "Action" tag of "Action RPG" . The game has no character creation, stats or the expected weapon/build variety of the Dark Souls series. However, players can expect to see multiple Endings and Skills and Skill Trees for customization.

The Story of Sekiro will be told in a familiar souls-like approach via items and hidden aspects, but players can expect for it to be somewhat more straight-forward as there is a set character with clear objectives.


Does Sekiro have Multiplayer?

Sekiro is a single player experience with no online coop, pvp or even asynchronous interactions. FromSoftware has stated that they wanted to focus on polishing the combat and the overall experience, which made sense as a single player game.


What is the Resurrect mechanic?

Sekiro will be able to spend an in-game currency to revive once before being sent back to the Sculptor's Idol (Checkpoint). Unlike Dark Souls, players will not lose their accumulated XP when they die, and there's no concept of "Soul Retrieval" or "Bloodstains". This mechanic does not make the runs easier, as it is very limited and players must gather more resources to use it again.


How do I ...?

      As of 11 March, it doesn't look like resources are required to resurrect. Just getting enough kills to unlock and recharge your main resurrection charge, or getting a 2nd free charge from a Sculptor's Idol will do it. The if you have 2 charges, then use 1, the other remaining charge will be locked until you kill enough enemies. This could be anywhere from killing 10 lower level enemies to just 1 high level enemy.
