Shadows Die Twice Development Camera
Most games in development will have some kind of free camera. It’s a super useful development tool for making bullshots, but it’s a mode that is usually muted before a game is released.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is pretty normal, in that sense. But what is a little less normal is to be able to see the debug mode in action.
Australian Dev and Souls fan Lance McDonald got his hands on a pre-release copy of Sekiro. And as a guy who knows so much about the inner workings of Souls and Transmitted by blood engines, it’s no surprise that he was able to reactivate the developer’s free camera.
While more and more games nowadays give you access to some sort of free camera in photo mode, the distance you can move around is often severely limited. The development camera is a lot better, and allows you to fly wherever you want.
This is the kind of thing that Limit breaking series on YouTube uses to uncover all kinds of secrets, and that’s what McDonald’s himself used to uncover clues and goodies lurking inside Transmitted by blood and the Souls games (among other techniques).
(There are no spoilers in the video below, in case you’re wondering.)
Unfortunately, McDonald’s didn’t provide any advice on how others might unlock it on their own. It’s good to know, however, that the mode is there waiting to be unlocked. And you can bet on screenshots and the like Souls fans are going to have a blast when they do.
