Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has quickly become one of the most appreciated souls-like games, despite being just the latest in a long row of similar titles created by From Software.
Despite being highly praised, the game is lacking multiplayer options, which means you can’t play it in co-op and/or PvP, and that’s it for all the platforms – PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
However, there’s a way you can work around this limit. Here’s how to do this and enjoy some games with your friends — or against them.
Play Sekiro Online
To play some Sekiro online, you’ll be required to have a PC version of the game, and install a mod that allows you to do so in a few steps.
Modder LukeYui has created a mod for that purpose, which is already available even though in an unpolished beta state, you can download it here.
If you’re interested in the topic, you can check the best Sekiro mods we’ve selected for you, and try and see if they fit your playstyle right away.
LukeYui explains that he wanted to “make it as familiar as I can to Souls games’ online mode, but as I’m not a professional game development company, it’s not going to be exactly the same.”
The mod offers support for up to 6 players – 1 host plus 5 phantoms – and introduces both PvP and Co-op.
PvP allows you to use your prosthetic tools and combat arts to defeat opponents and grapple through the world and snipe each other.
Co-op makes you play with your friends, and approach enemies and bosses with them so to make the game a little easier and more varied.
In case you’re wondering, we’ve listed the Sekiro bosses from the easiest to the toughest, said that easy bosses are quite a rarity in this kind of title.
The mod is also introducing Invasions, and this means you can access other players’ worlds – if they allow you to do so via a dedicated option – and challenge them without any further warning.
This happens through simplified matchmaking, which makes it so that invaders and phantoms will always be adjusted to the player’s local level.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice wasn’t born as a multiplayer game, but thanks to this mod, you can at least apply some online features and take advantage of the title with your friends.
