The secret boss inside the demo version of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has been revealed. Thanks to Gamecores, we have information on the secret boss that most of players who played demo version missed.
The boss is called headless, literally, he has no head. His attack weapon is a sword imbued with some sort of dark elemental magic. His attacks are slow. His offense has various methods. He creates black smoke around you that gradually slows you down, making you prone to attacks easily.
Second, the black smoke fills up a purple bar, that is actually a fear bar. If it fills up, you will not be able to attack the headless. Third, if he attacks from behind, he deals bleed damage and can kill you in one shot. Even if you revive to fight back, he will repeat and strike you down again.
The secret boss also creates his copy making his offense an easy bet. He attacks from up close also from different elevations.
The hard thing about secret boss ‘Headless’ is that whenever he repeats attacks like this, he replenishes his health. Whenever, his health drops, he attacks like this periodically.
We will know more about this once FromSoftware puts Headless into spotlight or when the game releases. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice releases on March 22, 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platform.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Dark Souls game are very much different from each other in a lot of aspects. Dark Souls combat mechanics are not agile and limited to two or three combos. On the other hand, what we have seen so far in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, it suggests the game is very much fluid in combat, the player can jump and vault over at certain places. Even, you can resurrect.
