Sekiro is already an incredible single-player experience, but sometimes even battle-hardened players feel like they could do with some backup.
Enter Sekiro Online, a mod for the PC version of the game which adds both co-op and PVP features to the game (via DSOGaming). Mod author LukeYui explained they tried to make the online mode as similar as possible to the Souls series’ online features, although it’s obviously not quite as smooth – seeing as it started as a pet project and is still in early public beta.
Running through P2P connections rather than a central server, Sekiro Online can support up to six players, with one player hosting and the other five appearing as phantoms. Along with co-op and PVP the mod also adds the Souls series’ invasions feature, which allows the player to enter an unsuspecting player’s world “as a spirit of vengeance” to fight to the death. To add some balance to this, invading players and phantoms will be adjusted to the player’s local level, otherwise things would get a bit unfair if an advanced player came in to repeatedly whack you. Although I guess that would be fitting for Sekiro.
