Releasing tomorrow Friday, FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is one of this month’s highly anticipated title. If you’ve ever liked Dark Souls series, Bloodborne, or Tenchu – by all accounts Sekiro will be right up your alley. Thus far, early reviews are exceedingly positive.
Being a Japanese developed title, discounts are always modest for these type of games during release week (even though it is being published by Activision) – and thus you won’t be able to find any major deals during release week. Having said that, you can scoop up a modest 8% off discount on Sekiro’s Steam key at digital retailer GMG for PC gamers.
For console gamers, unless you have the soon-to-be-defunct Best Buy GCU, the only real “deal” on the game is a pre-order bonus offer from GameStop where you’ll receive a physical trinket in the form of a katana replica letter opener. While we generally prefer straight-up cash discounts (or reward points) as pre-order incentives, this is honestly a pretty nice item for early adopters. No other retailers online are offering any additional bonuses for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – so yay GameStop.
In terms of pre-order bonuses of the digital variety – as far as we can tell all authorized retailers will include the bonus of a digital artbook and a digital mini soundtrack. It’s not much, but these are always preferred over exclusive content that is locked behind pre-orders. If you do decide to go with GameStop for the katana letter opener, make sure you grab the physical copy of the game as the digital download is NOT eligible for the offer. In general, pre-order will be valid until the actual street release date which is sometime tomorrow morning.
Pre-load is live for the PC version of the game and you should receive the Steam activation code for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice immediately after purchase.
