12. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
The latest offering from From Software, of Bloodborne and Dark Souls fame. Just like those offerings, this is a hard as nails action-adventure, but this time set in an ancient samurai mythos. There’s also less role-playing and levelling up: this is stealthier, story-driven quest. A grappling hook lets you zip around and sneak up on your kills. Single player only, you won’t be able to summon buddies to help you in a game some reviewers have said is the hardest From Software release of all time. Depending on your relationship to the Souls series, this news may excite or terrify you.
