Everything we know about Sekiro’s major October update

With this update, you will be able to take part in Reflections of Strength; rematches against any previously defeated boss that can be accessed through any Sculptor's Idol. Sculptor's Idols will also offer the ability to change the wolf's outfits, with three to become available with this update.

With Sekiro: Shadow's Die Twice surpassing over 5 million copies sold, From Software has made a decision to gift all players with a big update, which will arrive for free in October.

The update is expected on October 29th, which is very interesting timing considering next-gen consoles are rumoured to release just a few weeks later. This has been something that several fans of the game, including myself, have been asking for. Should you die during one of these challenges, you'll have to start all over again.

There are already mods that do this, of course - the Sekiro boss rush mod does exactly what it says on the tin, and there's even a mod that turns every single enemy in Sekiro into the final boss. While it probably doesn't detail everything that's coming in the October 2020 update, it does hit the major points. The other one you get by completing the game once. "All outfits are purely cosmetic in nature: They are accouterments to your achievements within Sekiro", says FromSoftware. Remnants more or less are recordings of a player's activity for up to 30 seconds. How to defeat a boss or some other feat of strength that can be uploaded for everyone else to watch. However, the Gauntlets of Strength are the long-awaited boss rush modes which many have been clamouring for in a FromSoftware game for a while. If you create a remnant and someone rates it, your character's health will be refilled for free. Especially since the studio is now working on Elden Ring, and many had figured they gave up on the title.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
