Low FPS On One Of The Monitors

If you have more than one monitors and are experiencing low FPS on one of them then it is likely that one of your monitors is not using HDR. If that is indeed the case then your FPS will be lower. If you are interested in playing the game with HDR then a quick fix is to disconnect any monitors that do not support HDR.

Keyboard And Mouse Issues

If you have connected an Xbox controller or any other controller then mouse and keyboard might not work as intended. If you need to use your mouse or keyboard then you will need to remove the Xbox controller or any other controller that you might be using.

Game Won’t Run With HDR

If the HDR setting is enabled in the game and you have a monitor that supports HDR then you still might not be able to play the game with HDR on. To fix this, Alt+Tab out of the game and then once again back. Now when you turn HDR on it should work as intended.

Invalid Platform Error

If you are facing this issue on PC then you should delete the Sekiro.exe file and then check the game integrity. Turn off steam and restart your PC. This should work in most cases.
