Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an action-adventure game that is notorious for being insanely tough and unforgiving. It follows the story of a Shinobi who goes on a journey of revenge on a samurai clan. The game is yet another offering from FromSoftware which is known to create titles which have challenging difficulty curves (remember Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition?). Although this game has received widespread critical acclaim, it still remains one of the hardest games ever.
Shadows Die Twice only had the single-player option but now fans can get excited because a new (and much-needed) multiplayer mod has been developed.
The mod is named Sekiro Online and it is created by Luke Yui, an independent developer. It is an unofficial mod which adds PvP and co-op play to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Upto 6 players can play the game with one host and five phantoms. The previously felt lack of an online mode compelled the developer to create one of his own. On the mod page, Luke Yui writes, “The PvE experience is similar to playing Dark Souls with 5000 ping.”
The Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Multiplayer Mod is in early public beta so there will be bugs, crashes and other instability issues. But rest assured that you will receive regular patch updates.
An important thing to remember is that the network progress is synced, so if the boss gets killed (even if you are a phantom or a dark spirit), this will be applied to your world. There is no impact of boss deaths or progress on matchmaking.
Also note that when the mod will update, the previous versions will no loner be supported. So if you are using v1.00, you can’t match with someone else playing v1.01. Make sure that all joining players have the mod installed in order to play, as well as the Steam game version on PC.
Here are some of the features of the Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Multiplayer Mod detailed on the mod page:
- Supports up to six players
- Includes PvP and Co-op
- You can invade a person’s world as a vengeful spirit and fight
- Phantoms and invaders will be adjusted to the player’s local level
- You cannot pause the game
Since the game is so tough to beat, maybe this multiplayer mod of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will help players create a better strategy to defeat all the deadly foes. Will this help players beat the enemies easily? Only time will tell.
