Sekiro Shadows Die Twice issues pc

Here we have it, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, was released a few days ago. To those of you already familiar with From Software’s already impressive track record, with titles such as Dark Souls or Bloodborne, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the newest title is action packed to the brim.

We’re back to gear upgrades, skill-trees, and let’s not forget, ability customization to fit your play-style.

Just a few hints about the game: Sengoku-period Japan, a shinobi with a mission and katana-action button mashing.

So, fellow players, let’s all get immersed in the journey of the protagonist, Sekiro, dubbed “the one-armed wolf”.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice bugs and errors

1. Audio issues

While every journey of a thousand slashes begin with one move, several users have pointed out to numerous issues related to the game.

On various threads on Steam, there were complaints in terms of sound bugs.

Sound bugs – Low voice, cutscene voices off etc..` anyone else having audio bugs? Can’t hear wolf, and sometimes everything is SO LOUD. Nothing to do with in-game settings, audio just seems messed up. Anyone know how to fix?

2. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice crashes

Other users have reported crashes when running the game.

Does Sekiro have a crashing problem? Want to know if it’s just me or if it’s a known issue. My Save data just got corrupted and I’m…relatively♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥since I was actually making a decent amount of progress after getting making progress against the boss within Ashina castle.

3. Low FPS

Some have reported frame rate drops while playing the game on later levels.

Unplayable due to slowdown late game. Ever since I beat the guardian ape and returned to the besieged version of Ashina castle, I’ve has the game slow down to 20 or even 10 frames per second regularly. Now the game slows even in other areas too.

4. Controller won’t work

There are reports of controller issues.

I then attempted to use my Xbox 1 controller with the wireless adapter, as well as directly plugging in with the micro usb, but it was still not working at all (I’ve confirmed that it does work with other games). I figured that there might be something up with my Xbox one controller drivers, so I disabled them all. This didn’t fix my issue, as I was still unable to play with my keyboard and mouse due to the camera spinning.

No game release is perfect, there’s the occasional hitch here and there.
