From Software, the studio behind the critically acclaimed action RPG, Dark Souls, is currently developing on two unannounced games as confirmed by its president, Hidetaka Miyazaki.
According to Miyazaki, the two games will bore all the elements found in their other games such as Dark Souls and Bloodborne, calling the two “From Software-esque” games. However as much as he is excited to talk about it, the two games are still on their development stages and need a little more time before any details are further discussed.
As of now, the two games remain a mystery. Although fans are speculating that one of them may happen to be Bloodborne’s sequel, especially after a Bloodborne Easter Egg was found in the studio’s VR adventure game, Déraciné. However, Miyazaki denied the rumors, stating that the Easter Egg was added in-game all because the developers were big fans of the game. However, fans are still hoping that a sequel was indeed in development until the names of the two games are finally announced in public.
Aside from these two mystery games, From Software is also busy and working on the release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice this coming March 22. The game is an action-adventure that follows the story of a shinobi named Sekiro as he takes revenge on an Ashina samurai who severed his arm and kidnapped his lord. Armed with a prosthetic that allows various tools and weapons to be installed, Sekiro sets on a journey to rescue his lord and kill the samurai. The game is set in a late reimagined 16th-century Sengoku period Japan.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is said to have no role-playing or multiplayer elements. It will feature third-person view gameplay and will feature stealth elements that will require the player to kill enemies in a range and remained undetected. The character, Sekiro, will also be given the abilities to use various tools that can help him in combat and exploration which includes a grappling hook and torch.
The game is published by Activision for Microsoft Windows gaming PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
