Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a single-player action-adventure RPG for PC, developed by FromSoftware and published by Activision Blizzard. The game is set in Japan, during the 1500s’ Sengoku period. Players’ will travel the feudal land as Sekiro, one-armed samurai warrior and face dangerous foes, both in combat and stealth action. The game is scheduled to hit the stores in March 2019.GameplayIn Sekiro, the players take control of the main character named Sekiro, or “One-armed Wolf”, a lone samurai warrior. Unlike in previous FromSoftware games, the player cannot influence the appearance of Sekiro.In combat, the protagonist uses two katanas. Players can switch between them, but they cannot be dual-wielded. Sekiro also has a prosthetic arm replacing his missing limb. The Shinobi Prosthetic, as it is called in the game, can be fitted with various attachments, which serve different purposes. Grappling hook allows climbing into elevated areas to search for items or stealthy plan attack from above, axe can be equipped to shatter enemies’ shields, flamethrower lights enemies on fire and can also be used to ignite players’ katana, and many more. Equippable tools can be upgraded by different means, such as finding crafting materials or spending skill points.Sekiro’s combat mechanics are based on what developers describe as “battle of postures” system. Instead of directly attacking the opponent and dealing damage, players must throw their foe off balance and break their guard. By attacking the enemies’ defense stance, the player fills in a gauge visible in the top of the screen. When the gauge is full, the player can break the guard of their adversary and deal a lethal strike with their sword. In most cases one strike is enough to kill the enemy, however, there are some, who require more effort. These foes act as the bosses in the game. The same mechanic that players use on their enemies can be used against them. That’s why Sekiro emphasizes constant offensive, filling the enemies gauge to dispose of them quickly, and not letting them retaliate.Defeating enemies and bosses rewards the player with experience, which later gives skill points. The skill points can be spent on upgrading various aspects of Sekiro’s abilities divided into three skill trees: Shinobi, Samurai and Prosthetic Arm.Stealth in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is an important aspect of gameplay. Players can enter stealth mode to quietly sneak on unsuspecting enemies and kill them without alerting others or eavesdrop to gather information. Players can use elements of the environment, such as patches of tall grass to hide before enemies’ eyes. The hiding spots in Sekiro are described as dynamic, which means that they can be negatively influenced by foes, for example by burning grass. Enemies alerted to players’ presence will come to investigate. While doing that the marker above their head will be yellow. When the marker turns red, that means Sekiro was spotted and players must get ready for a confrontation. Story and CharactersSekiro: Shadows Die Twice is set in 16th century Japan during the famous Sengoku period. Japan is split into warring kingdoms, where feudal lords waged brutal battles with the help of samurai warriors. The main character of the game, Sekiro, is one of such samurai. Sekiro’s master, a young feudal lord, was kidnapped by the Ashina clan, and the samurai himself was disfigured and left for dead.Now he sets out on the quest to regain his honor and rescue his master. Sekiro is armed with both, a traditional Japanese katana sword as well as a prosthetic which allows him to equip various helpful tools which he can use in his travels and during fights. Because of his severed arm, the samurai is known as a one-armed wolf who seeks revenge on his attackers.ReceptionEarly impressions of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice for PC were very positive. After its reveal at E3 2018 critics praised the game for innovative gameplay mechanics and climate of Sengoku era Japan recreated in the game. The game is considered a huge hit, drawing comparisons to other series from this studio, namely Dark Souls. Players especially love the difficulty level, combat and overall climate of the game.
Max Rockatansky doesn't have an easy life, but nobody does out on the wastelands left after a nuclear war. Mad Max is an intense, harsh, and brutal journey for vengeance and a relative peace of mind. A third-person brawler with robust progression of both man and his trusty car, Magnum Opus. Will you brave the lawless wastes ravaged by bandits and destructive sandstorms?Vast and beautiful wastelandThe wasteland of Mad Max (PC) is a dried out sea, with shipwrecks and naval infrastructure spread all over it. Drive to a massive tanker repurposed for a garage, help people squatting in an old lighthouse, and investigate crevice’s left behind when the sea evaporated. And it's all open for exploration!Despite the harshness of the environment, the dawns and sunsets paint the setting in rich colours, making it one of the most picturesque images of post-apocalyptic wastelands in gaming.Intense car combatIt wouldn't be a proper Mad Max game without exciting car chases, and it delivers! Drag enemy drivers from their seats with a harpoon, shoot the exposed fuel tanks with your shotgun, slam into them with all the force of a front-mounted plow and more. High-speed chase scenes and vehicular combat are the true meat of Mad Max gameplay, and becoming a road warrior is satisfying, rich in explosions, and frequently bloody.Brutal brawlingMax has no time for fancy moves. When he gets out of his car he delivers powerful punches, crippling kicks, and stunning grapples. Add to this some old-fashioned shivs and limb-breaking and Max becomes the kind of opponent his enemies were unprepared to handle.Engage in dynamic combat promoting carefully planned combos, devastating counter attacks, and killing foes with their own weapons. Just be careful: Max can dish more than he can handle, and he'll die easily if you aren't careful!Sabotage and infiltrationTake down bandit bases through any means necessary. Snipe their spotters, detonate fuel tanks or pipelines, eliminate the war criers, tear down the gates and disable flamethrowers. Every base is a puzzle, and the solution is premeditated destruction and murder.And the best part? When you eliminate the bandits, you get to reap benefits from the place!Robust progressionGather scrap on your travels to upgrade Max's inventory and the Magnum Opus. Create leather jackets, pouches, and fashion brass knuckles from wrenches and screwdrivers. Put spikes on your car to prevent boarding parties, upgrade rims to shred enemy cars' tires, and install various V6 and V8 engines. They are but a few of the upgrade options, and you can pick and choose which upgrades you want active at the time. But be mindful: all car upgrades come with a drawback. Can't have heavy armor and top-notch acceleration, after all!

The ‘crafting’ feature allows the player to collect materials falling from the sky in crates during their turn, and make use of them in the same or opponent’s turn to create special kinds of already offered weapons. The crafted piece can be used in the next turn of the player, as the production of weapons takes time.Vehicles in Worms!Additionally, for the first time in the series, the developers gave the worms access to vehicles, which allow them to conquer the arena even faster. Now, you can become the pilot of a helicopter, or a driver of a tank, a Rocket League car or the Mech walker.

Additionally, the return to the formula of classic Worms games, while presenting new features keeps the game fresh and makes the PvP gameplay one of the best modes.
