Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Mod Adds Easy Mode

Months after release, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice eventually gets an apparent easy mode, thanks to latest mod.

When developer From Software launched action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One teaming up with publisher Activision in early 2019, it received immense praise aside from criticism for extreme difficulty.

Though majority of players and hardcore gamers have embraced it, mainstream critics and game journalists were asking for an easy mode. Their prayers have finally been answered as a new mod has arrived to add an easy mode.

Currently available at Nexus Mods, Sekiro The Easy mod will not completely make the game easy but help people make more progress. Without altering enemy behavior or positions, it makes some simple changes to lower game difficulty.

It provides attack buffs to protagonist one-armed Wolf and thus, helps taking down enemies quicker. Players are also given infinite amount of in-game currency Spirit Emblem to access abilities and weapons while removing fall damage.

Item drop rates and buff duration for weapons are increased along with timer of Puppeteer Ninjutsu technique to backstab opponents. There are other mods to balance out some features but Sekiro The Easy packs a couple of them into one.

Newcomers who are on the verge of giving up trying to get killed over and over again in Sekiro can at least try out this mod and receive significant perks to at least get a hold of things since the mod addresses more than a single issue.

Players would still have to learn how to overcome every in-game challenges and tackle enemies since it doesn't affect any of their intelligence but offers you a better fighting chance against odds that seemed to be unconquerable until now.

It has only been months that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice came out and From Software is already in full swing with their upcoming project Elden Ring, which have Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki on board with Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin.

One of its greatest aspects would be featuring a cross-play support for over consoles and PC platforms when in multiplayer mode. Also, Modern Warfare would get rid of a traditional paid Season Pass system for CoD, which is pretty cool.

Call of Duty 2020 Will Be Black Ops 5

Activision puts developer studio Treyarch in charge for Call of Duty 2020, which would seemingly be Black Ops 5.

Through a series of leaks and rumors, next title from first-person shooter franchise Call of Duty for 2019 is almost confirmed to be Modern Warfare 4 due to Infinity Ward being involved and former developers are coming back once again.

Meanwhile, publisher Activision is already up to something for next year with developer Treyarch, which is likely to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 5, giving developers a year less to deliver next installment of Black Ops sub-series.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 Almost Confirmed

Recently, Activision has sidelined studios Raven Software and Sledgehammer Games for handing over the ongoing project to Treyarch to rush its development cycle up to speed while aiming at a 2020 release window right now.

As a follow-up to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 that just came up about seven months ago, developers at Treyarch will have a tight schedule to pursue in order to deliver next Call of Duty game for 2020 after this sudden shift.

RELATED: Call of Duty 2019 Will Be Revealed Soon

Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer and Treyarch has been following a three-year development cycle for annual Call of Duty releases from 2012, rotating their roles each year to work on Advanced Warfare, Black Ops and Infinite Warfare sub-franchise.

At this point, Infinity Ward is most probably busy with long-awaited return of Modern Warfare. Activision was working with Raven and Sledgehammer on a CoD title that is set during Cold War era and most likely to feature Vietnam.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Operation Spectre Rising Update

Now that Treyarch is put in charge creative leadership for BO5, Raven and Sledgehammer would still remain as support studio. Their work so far on the project would be transformed into a single-player campaign mode for veteran fans.

Return of story mode would be welcoming to players who were critical of Black Ops 4 for its lack of a campaign. Currently expected to arrive on fall of 2020 for upcoming PlayStation and Xbox consoles, BO5 would probably be a cross-gen title.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Adds Alcatraz Blackout Map

Only downside for studio Treyarch is that they have only two years to finish it instead of three and that would eventually led to major crunch time for developers who are already annoyed working brutal overtime hours for BO4.

Though Black Ops 4 saw a best-selling digital launch on CoD history, its sales number for physical copies were lowest among other series titles and didn't generate expected revenue margin that Activision was hoping for.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Leaked

Based on these facts, the publisher is currently considering taking a free-to-play approach even though they were against that idea once. Upcoming Modern Warfare 4 may embrace this new revenue model and offer similar component.

According to insider report, staffs from Raven and Sledgehammer were in constant argument over development of Cold War-themed Call of Duty 2020 throughout the past year and now, those guys are about to act as support for Treyarch, which is pretty concerning.

Though there is no solid evidence for which sub-series from first-person shooter franchise Call of Duty will come out for 2019, all hints are pointing towards the release of much anticipated title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 now.

However, some recent information strongly suggests that some new project related to Modern Warfare is coming and developers at Infinity Ward are currently looking forward to a 2019 launch window that will be revealed very soon.

Recent changes in LinkedIn profiles of five former Infinity Ward developers show that all of them have returned to their former home. The studio brings back Mark Grigsby as animation director, who worked on first two MW games back then.

Alex Roycewicz, Geoff Smith and Joel Emslie came back as game designer, multiplayer design director and studio art director respectively. Even Infinity Ward founder Zied Rieke himself has returned in position of gameplay director.

Grigsby was behind popular knife melee attack mechanics of MW and worked on its weapons design. Roycewicz and Smith on the other hand were responsible for some unforgettable multiplayer maps like Overgrown and Wetwork.

Emslie came up with memorable Call of Duty character like Ghost and designed items like the ghillie suit. Rieke had the idea of original team deathmatch spawn logic and flashing health regenerating system that continue to influence COD.

RELATED: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Adds Alcatraz Blackout Map

When Activision fired company co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella, these five talented employees left Infinity Ward to join Respawn Entertainment, where they would work on successful titles like Titanfall and Titanfall 2.

After working for Respawn and before coming back to IW studio, Rieke joined Naughty Dog in 2013. Due to their reputation of creating compelling narratives, ex-developers are hired to craft a solid single-player campaign for newest Call of Duty title.

Infinity Ward has concluded MW story arc with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 back in 2011 and even in a regular cycle of a new Call of Duty game releasing every year, fans have been eagerly waiting to get back at it till this day.

First there was some leaked info about MW4 on Twitter back in January and then some renowned NFL star confirmed of having some hands-on experience with next Call of Duty game after attending an event by publisher Activision.

From 2007-2011, Infinity Ward has been developing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series and given how each year Activision tasks a different studio to work on next Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 4 is likely to be on the corner.

Although neither developers nor publisher companies have given any confirmation to these unofficial clues, we can get an announcement in May or expect to get a bigger reveal at E3 2019 with more information and maybe even gameplay footage.

Whether or not 2019 Call of Duty turns out to be Modern Warfare 4, we probably will not have to wait too long since their yearly announcement for each CoD title usually comes in May and we are only a few days away from next month.

Though both Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 titles were very well-received from last two years, BO4 failed to catch traction it was aiming for with its unique Battle Royale mode Blackout despite its overall success.
