The highly-anticipated game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is coming later this month, and now developer From Software has released a brand new trailer, which showcases several abilities that our protagonist, Sekiro, is going to have, as well as the dangerous foes he'll face. Check it out below:

The trailer starts with Sekiro battling a giant bull-like creature with a massive log tied to its horns. And as if that wasn’t enough, both ends of the log are on fire. The bull charges back and forth destroying everything in its path, but right before it crushes Sekiro, he vanishes and reappears from the shadow.

For the rest of the video, we see the protagonist facing off against various human enemies, taking them down with a combination of stealth kills and acrobatic maneuvers. We also have a glimpse at some locations in the game, such as icy mountains and ancient fortresses. At the very end is an incredible sequence in which Sekiro battles against a monstrous creature that resembles a Yeti. Even though he got smacked around a little bit, Sekiro finally manages to overpower the beast, stab it through the eye and then take off its head. Sekiro Shadows Die Twice might not follow the formula established by Dark Souls and Bloodborne, but it is undoubtedly going to be just as challenging and bloody as From Soft's previous titles.

In fact, death in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is even more punishing. Every time you are slain, you lose half of your current gold as well as progression point – a resource similar that can be spent to obtain new skills. Moreover, the more you die, the more a sickness called Dragon Rot spread in the world and afflict the NPCs around you. When a character gets infected with Dragon Rot, it'll change how they interact with you, and they might even stop talking to you altogether.

Sekiro will be vastly different compared to Dark Souls

Another difference is that Sekiro actually has voiceover, which gives him a, well, soul. He is a specific character with his own stories and personality instead of just simply be an avatar for players to control like in the Soulborne games. Bosses are also quite different too. Many of them require specific strategies to beat rather than just attacking and dodging. And, perhaps the biggest change of all is that you can actually pause this game.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice launches on March 22 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
