Sekiro: Shadows Twice has sold a lot for publisher Activision. How much is a lot? Try five million units worth! As part of that announcement, Activision has also announced that a Sekiro upcoming update is set for October 29, and will introduce new features to the game.

Players will get the Reflections of Strength and the Gauntlets of Strength in the update.
With this update, you will be able to take part in Reflections of Strength; re-matches against any previously defeated boss that can be accessed through any Sculptor’s Idol. These Reflections may help in preparing for Gauntlets of Strength, single-life challenges that will truly test only the bravest warriors… or the most foolish.
Sculptor’s Idols will also offer the ability for players to change Wolf’s outfits!
Sculptor’s Idols will also offer the ability to change the Wolf’s outfits, with three to become available with this update, including “Tengu” and “Old Ashina Shinobi. Two of these outfits are unlocked via Gauntlets, while the third is unlocked just by beating the game once.
All outfits are purely cosmetic in nature: They are accoutrements to your achievements within Sekiro.
Finally, there’s also a new feature called Remnants, which involve the community somewhat while making sure it aids players too.
Remnants are recordings of what a player does in-game for up to 30 seconds at a time and are available for use after the game’s tutorial. After a player records their Remnant – whether it is an epic takedown of an enemy or a flawless demonstration of a tricky movement technique – it can be uploaded along with a written message so that other community members can play it back. Through these Remnants, one could hope that they or others may gain the knowledge and further insight to overcome their current obstacle. For those seeking ultimate guidance on traversing treacherous areas, or seeking hidden alcoves or curious cubby-holes, these records may prove a blessing from the gods.
If a community member watches and then rates a Remnant, the owner of it will have their HP recover for free, allowing them to get back into the fight quicker without the use of a Sculptor’s Idol, or consumable items such as Healing Gourds.
Once this Sekiro upcoming update is out, we’ll let our readers know.
