Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was plunged into controversy recently after users found out in-game purchases may be “optional”. This is however not true after official confirmation was made by FromSoftware’s Public Relation representative. No microtransactions in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
FromSoftware, the video game developer behind Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, is not a company known for going along with microtransaction practices. However, the publisher of the game is Activision, a giant in the west that is no stranger to microtransactions. This raises a lot of alarms when fans found out about the “in-game purchases optional” box in the PlayStation Store.
COG Connected sent and received an email from Wiebke Vallentin, the PR representative of Step-3 who works with Activision on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, stating, “There are no plans for microtransactions in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice”. Fans sighed with relief after it was stated that it seemed to be an “erroneous tick box” and it is going to be fixed.
Stealth-kill Everyone You See
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action-adventure game where you take on the role of a warrior that was left for dead. He was saved and was given a prosthetic arm that will help him in his journey to protect his young lord. The game has a unique form of combat in which enemies can be executed with full health under certain conditions. Players even have the option to stealth through most of the gameplay, executing everyone who gets in their way, if they wish.
The game is scheduled to be released on March 22, 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-orders are available now in the form of a standard edition and a collector’s edition. You can get a replica of the game coins, a map, a digital soundtrack, a 7” shinobi statue, a collectible artbook and a SteelBook® by purchasing the collector’s edition.
