In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, From Software distances the endurance-oriented RPG action gameplay that he popularized with Demon's Souls, the Dark Souls and Bloodborne trilogy. If you think your Soulsborne gaming experience will make your stay in Sekiro easier, think again.
There are many similar themes to be sure. Although Sekiro takes place in a more realistic context than Lodran or Yharnam, Ashina is still a society on the brink of complete collapse and is home to a host of nightmarish monsters and divine figures. The playable protagonist, Wolf, is also a stoic and unwavering character, whose ability to return from the dead is the only reason he is able to defeat the powerful enemies he encounters.

The similarities end almost there, though. The fight at Sekiro is focused on posture rather than stamina, for example, so it is essential to send back enemy attacks to success. New attacks are unlocked through experience as opposed to found weapons. There are many other differences – you can even swim in Sekiro. From Software has designed a completely different game, and it can be a bit difficult to understand everything. As well as, without the cooperative multiplayer mode, you will have to fend for yourself.
