The Cheapest Copies Of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice In Australia

It's a new From Software game. And it's launching on all major platforms simultaneously this time, too.

First of all: Sekiro is available on PC! I'm actually surprised by how many people on social media aren't sure about that. Maybe it's just because people are thinking it's another Bloodborne-type scenario, or the PC versions of From Software games don't launch at the same time as consoles, so they've never played a From Software game on PC.

Either way, you can get a PC copy come Friday. So that's the first thing. Secondly, yes this game will be as hard as balls. That's what I've heard from everyone who's played it thus far. But did you really expect any different?

Most importantly: no online multiplayer to screw up your game. This is a fully solo game, with a properly working pause button and no need to worry about PvP hackers.

Let's get into the price wars, starting on console.

PS4 / Xbox One

Here's the scoreboard:

Amazon Australia competing strongly, as you'd expect, but The Gamesmen have made a huge play as well. They don't have the scale or reach of some of the bigger brands, so they have to pick and choose what titles they fight hard for, and this is a great pick.

But if you're after something nearby that you can grab, JB are doing a decent deal as well. Big W and Target really aren't in the running this time around, and EB are doing EB things as per usual.

PC

Here's what you can expect to pay on PC:

Not as many offerings here as The Division 2 pre-launch, but The Gamesmen, Amazon Australia and JB are offering solid prices on all platforms, which is a positive. For a deeper look into the game's gameplay, here's some B-roll footage from Paul and Chris a little while ago.

    Amazon listed the PC version as 'Download Only' not physical which I assume is 'Steam' but the listing doesn't say.

      The listing here is physical, but with Amazon Prime so shipping would be a day-two days max.

        I wish there was an option for digital delivery, or even for Amazon to send you a picture or something of the code from the case. Amazon often has the best price, but I hate that I'm wasting time and effort sending a DVD case across the country just to get a code.

          yeah a DVD case with a Steam code, plus Amazon generally send its 1-2 days before release date so you usually get it on the release day (but I live in Melbs so it doesn't have to travel far).

          I mean, it doesn't seem to be an uncommon practice for whatever reason (possibly the seller offloading accountability if someone doesn't get their code).

          Had this happen with my Anthem preorder - JB sent me my 20-character Anthem code in the DVD case wrapped in bubble-wrap, sealed in a 5kg soft-parcel packed with a cardboard box (to give it some structural integrity, I guess); that same day, they also emailed me the other 20-character code with the preorder bonus...

            Yep, just had the same thing with Amazon. They emailed me the preorder bonus (three times!) but package the (pretty much) empty DVD case like its the Ark of the Covenant itself!

    Ooh, Amazon dropped their price? They used to have it for $69. Guess JB put the pressure on them.

      Actually last week (or maybe the week before that) it was $52, so if anything it's gone up in price at Amazon.

    I'll be waiting for reviews. And also will be playing Rage.

      I'll let you know how it goes! I was meant to get a code recently, but I'm pushing for a PC code (makes streams etc. easier) so might not have a better idea until next week.

    Can't wait. Just a heads up for PC players keen to play on Friday steam has the release date marked as the 23rd so possibly won't unlock till Saturday.

      We were wondering this - has there been any confirmation? Can't seem to find any information.

        The store page says it will unlock in 1 day 9 hours, so if that doesn't change, should be 2am on Saturday (NSW time).

    As broke as I am, I’m not giving money to amazon.

    Pre-ordered my copy of Xbox last week on some crazy Harvey Norman promotion for $49.40 with pickup at my local store, dank.

    JB catalogue in today's paper has it listed at $79?

      It's $64 on their web site. They describe a JB exclusive "pre-order" version which includes a digital artbook and soundtrack. Maybe that's the difference?

        Ahhh yes, correct you are. Thanks!!

          Also just got an email saying JB's $64 price is launch day only, after which is presumably goes back up to $79. So keep that in mind too if you were thinking of buying there.

            Ahhh thank you Zak, you're really going above and beyond. Legend.

    So, all major platforms, except Switch.
