Story Trailer, System Requirements for From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Outed

From Software's Dark Souls series has become one of the hallmarks of gaming in recent years, spawning multiple formula-copying titles with their own takes and settings. However, it has become clear that no one developer has mastered From Software's mix of cruel difficulty. I'd say From Software has mastered an almost alchemically concocted technical prowess in animation mechanics and timing, mixed with pattern recognition, attention to detail, reflexes, and the cherry on top, immediate, repeatable gratification on finally overcoming that damn Ornstein and Smough pair.

The latest story trailer showcases Japan's Sengoku period in the 1500's, a period drenched in conflict and the blood of samurai, with Owl taking on an apprentice from the remains of a battle. As with almost every samurai tale, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be making use of a plot centered around recovering one's honor. According to From Software, you'll be able to use "deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities while you blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head-to-head combat". I'm already fully aware that the title is misleading: you'll die more than twice by the time the credits roll. You can start counting your deaths and victories come March 22nd, when the game is released for all platforms (via Steam on PC).

First Official Screenshots of Dark Souls: Remastered Released

Bandai Namco has revealed some official screenshots of Dark Souls: Remastered that will launch on May 25 for PCs and consoles. While the original was limited to 720p resolution, PC players will be able to enjoy the remastered version in native 4K resolution at a frame rate of 60 FPS if they have the necessary hardware to run it, of course. Unfortunately, Bandai Namco hasn't officially released the system requirements for Dark Souls: Remastered. However, the overall textures, lighting, and effects have been improved in the remastered version. The level of quality should be similar to that of Dark Souls 3. The minimum system requirements for Dark Souls 3 were set at an Intel Core i3-2100 processor, 4GB of memory, and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card. We can expect similar system requirements for Dark Souls: Remastered.
