From Software is always known for developing hardcore games and it’s new title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, is another proof to this claim that will take you to a deadly journey during Sengoku era in Japan, where you are tasked as a Shinobi to save your lord from getting killed.
Today, it’s revealed that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice owns the record for the most cocurrent players at launch among all the games that have been released in 2019. It’s reached 108K cocurrent players on steam, surpassing 89K players of Devil May Cry 5 and 74K players of Resident Evil 2 in their own launch days. So, it seems at least PC gamers have no fear to encounter with tough moments, hardcore boss-fights and die-hard monstrous generals in snowy mountains of Japan.
