Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Sells 5M; Getting Free Content in October

A post on the Activision Blog reveals that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has sold more than five million copies since the launch of FromSoftware's samurai action/adventure. This also announces plans for a free update expected on October 29th to bring new content and features to the game. Here's a bit:
Since the release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice on March 22, 2019, over five million copies of FromSoftware’s epic adventure set within a mythical feudal Japan have found its way into the hands of a community that welcomed the challenge of becoming the “One-armed Wolf.”

On October 29, FromSoftware is releasing a free update for all players that will introduce several new features to the game. These include the ability to rematch bosses, tackle boss gauntlets, perform player movement recordings, and more.

$33 from GMG.

But yeah that's pretty close to what you said and I get your point. A lot of games you see those sweet 75% sales after a while.
Keep in mind though, selling that many copies, presumably they feel no pressure to reduce the price, especially since it's only been out a little over a year.

Oh man did I love Sekiro! And I'm not a huge souls fan. Loved The Surge (1), though.
I tried Ng+ briefly, but it felt easier than the first playthrough, so I didn't bother. Hoping this content will bring me back to the game!

I'm a huge Dark SOuls fan, but I didn't like Sekiro, you couldn't get creative with the gameplay. You had to play how they wanted you to, which was just too frustrating for me. I love the challenge of DS1,DS2,DS3 but this just feels like a slog.

Plus the combat wasn't my cup of tea, the whole clanging swords business to damage enemies instead of, you know, damaging them directly didn't feel good .

And then you take out the coop and the RPG elements, and then meh, I' rather just play DS3, So I made a Ninja character in Dark Souls 3 instead, that was my sekiro hah :-)

Is there an easy patch for this like with Dark Souls? I love the world but I suck at games.

I suck at the Demon/Dark/Borne games too but I found the default difficulty to be enjoyable in Sekiro. I haven't gotten far enough through yet to know the full extent of the battle complexity but the curve doesn't appear to be as steep as those games.

Loved Sekiro and platinumed it on PS4 along with all the other SoulsBorne games. It's hard to imagine going back to it though without any online co-op/pvp or actual new areas to explore though.
