Sekiro adds new outfits and boss rush mode in free update

For so long has Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's One-armed Wolf been running and jumping around in the same drab clothes, it's about time he jazzed up his wardrobe. In the new free update that dropped yesterday, From Software have done exactly that, and added three new outfits. They're not just giving them to you that easy, though. To unlock two of them, players will need…

Sekiro is getting a free update this October, adding new outfits and a boss rush

Surprise! FromSoftware's most recent very difficult action game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is getting a big free update on October 29th. Because of who I am as a person, the immediate thing I'm drawn to in said update is the fact that there are some cool new outfits for everyone's favourite Shinobi. But there are two other very exciting things on the way, too -…

You can play Sekiro in multiplayer using this new mod

Unlike its Souls siblings, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has no multiplayer. No wrong'uns invading your game to murder you, no friends helping you or hanging out. If you'd like that, good news: a new mod is out, adding multiplayer in both cooperative and antagonistic flavours. It's an impressive achievement, even if the mod's creator does warn it might be a little rough. It's nice to…

Check out three Sekiro players attempting modded co-op

So I've not actually played Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It's not strictly because there's no co-op. Given that I've played all three Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, I suppose it's not not because there's no co-op either. Behold! Modders have come to my rescue. Here are three players attempting to fight through a section all playing as the One-Armed Wolf.

Let us wish a blessed Good Friday to all the Catholics in the house. Now, get out. Your fish-sharing magician cannot compete with these 9 videogame characters who see death as nothing but a passing nuisance. These 9 heroes of reanimated flesh.

The modders creating accessibility modes for notoriously difficult games

Whether or not famously difficult games should have an optional easy mode has long been a point of contention. But many already do, albeit unofficially, thanks to modders taking things into their own hands. Take the fella who goes by "n00bplatformer", for example. He recently created an “Assist Mode” for run 'n’ gun action game Cuphead. It makes simple tweaks to some of the game’s…

Feature: The deadliest dance of all

Have you played… Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice?

Rarely have I felt so powerful as I did the second time I defeated Lady Butterfly in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. During my first playthrough, Lady Butterfly was the boss that forced me to really learn how to play the game, to spend time internalising all the movements and steps of the intricate dance of metal and death that makes the game what it is.…

The 8 coldest monsters in PC games

I have spent the winter holidays making a list, checking it twice, trying to find who is naughty on ice. But unlike the popular red-clad demon of the north, my list is reserved for terrors, demons and critters larger than 4 feet tall. I’m talking about cold monsters. They’re very chic this week. You see, while Nic has been battering majestic species of endangered giganto-moose…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very best gaming monitors for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your path to…

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Sekiro’s new Boss Rush mod lets you scrap with any boss, any time

A new mod for From Software's slasher lets you cut straight to the point. Swords, yeah?I haven't gotten around to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice myself (it's the lack of a fashion endgame, I'm afraid). But I'm told it has some absolutely killer fights, what with all those stylish parries and flying head kicks. The sort of combat I imagine you'd want to just dive back…

Yes, yes, it's me. I know, I know, but calm down. While it's obviously very exciting to have a celebrity as handsome and excellent as me writing you some Steam Charts, I'm still just a regular ordinary guy underneath it all. I leap into my trousers both legs at once, same as anyone else.
