Two players can join up to tackle missions together. One player acts as the host and summons the second player by offering up a special item (an Ochoko Cup) to the in-game shrines. The second player then searches for games to join from the mission selection screen.
The Abyss Mode added in the "Bloodshed's End" DLC supports up to three players online. It is the only mode in the game that allows for up to three players simultaneously, and you must purchase the DLC in order to play it. All other missions are limited to one or two players, max.
In the age of samurai, a lone traveler lands on the shores of Japan. He must fight his way through the vicious warriors and supernatural Yokai that infest the land in order to find that which he seeks. The gameplay bears a striking similarity to the Dark Souls series. Combat takes place in real time and features various weapon types such as katana, spears, axes, bows and Tanegashima rifles. The player can switch between three main stances for any melee weapon: 'low' which is fast but weak and has an effective dodge ability; 'mid' which has the best blocking techniques but is neither fast nor specially powerful; and 'high' which causes the most damage with slower movements.
