Sekiro: Shadows Die is FromSoftware‘s new IP (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Armor Core) and will be published by Activision. It will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 22nd, 2019.
The game is based in Sengoku Era Japan. You play as the “One-Armed Wolf” whose goal is to save his master and destroy his life-long enemy. You can equip several prosthetic arms which give you unique weapons or equipment to battle enemies such as an ax, a grappling hook, and an umbrella shield(?)
While many people know FromSoftware for their work on the Dark Souls series, Sekiro will be much different. There isn’t character customization or armor but the map is an open-world! You will play as a shinobi and will have active swordplay combat. Rather than a stamina system, you will a “posture” system. A more detailed review of the gameplay changes is below by VaatiVidya.

After the amazing success of the Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, Activision is now remastering the Spyro trilogy (Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, Spyro: Year of the Dragon) from the PlayStation. Known as Spyro Reignited Trilogy, the game is for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The release date is September 21st. The game was originally created by Insomniac Games (Ratchet & Clank, Jax, Infamous, Spider-man). Developer Toys for Bob is handling remastering duties for the Spyro trilogy. They are known for their work on Skylanders.
Similar to the Crash Trilogy, the game is being remade from the ground up. The game will feature all new assets, lighting, controls, and some characters will have “creatively re-imagined with additional flair.” The game will also have improved control. Although the PlayStation 1 Spyro games are classics, the controls can be improved. The soundtrack will also be a re-imagined version of composer Stewart Copeland’s soundtrack.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy will cost $39.99.
Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey, co-founders of Call of Duty series developer Sledgehammer Games, are both stepping down. After working on Call of Duty: WW2, they will be stepping down to focus on a new role in Activision that is not yet determined.
Schofield thanks Activision for the opportunities as Sledgehammer Games started under their company. Their main focus was on Activision’s shooter franchise but Schofield and Condrey had worked on excellent previous games such as Dead Space and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. Activision has stated that the two will focus on “executive duties” which is separate work from game development. Aaron Halon, a co-founder of Slegehammer will take over the two’s position as lead developer.
Call of Duty: WW2 received a lower score than Modern Warfare 3 and Infinite Warfare but the work Scofield and Condrey was generally received well. Despite this, WW2 sold twice as much as Infinite Warfare.
“Activision has offered me the opportunity to focus my energy on something I’m very passionate about, exploring new game ideas for the company,” Schofield said. “It’s something I just couldn’t pass up.”
“I’m proud of what we accomplished together, it has been the greatest experience of my professional life. I am looking forward to starting a new chapter of my career with Activision,” Condrey said.
