Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Free Update Now Live, Adds New Modes and Skins

Sekiro's latest update adds new boss modes, skins, and a replay share function similar to systems found in Bloodborne and Dark Souls.

Though it came out back in March 2019, it's quite pleasing to see Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice getting continued support from From Software. The latest free update for the game is now live across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.

The update brings a significant content expansion to Sekiro, including two new modes: Gauntlet of Strength and Reflection of Strength.

Gauntlet of Strength is essentially a boss rush mode, only giving players one life to defeat the Sekiro's challenging bosses, while Reflection of Strength lets players fight previously defeated bosses repeatedly.

Considering other From Software games required you to replay them entirely to experience these boss fights again and again, these two modes are certainly a welcome addition.

That's not all From Software has included in this update though. On the cosmetic side, there are new equippable outfits, two of which are available by completing these new challenges. These outfits and can be changed at Sculptor's Idols. A third outfit is also available, earned by beating the game once. 

Finally, similar to the Illusions in Bloodborne and Dark Souls, a new replay feature has also been added, letting players share recordings of their ghosts to help others with challenging boss fights or uncovering secrets. Should you wish, written messages can also be attached to these to add additional clarity. For further updates on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, stay tuned to GameSkinny.
