Modder ‘thefifthmatt’ has released pretty cool mod for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. As its title suggests, the Boss Rush mod adds a separate game mode in which you can fight bosses and minibosses in any order, and as many times as you want.
Players are able to select bosses and minibosses from the Dilapidated Temple Sculptor’s Idol. Moreover, players win money and XP from bosses and minibosses to get items and upgrades.
According to the modder, an enemy counts as a boss if defeating them gives you a Memory. Boss names also have a different in-game appearance than miniboss names. Furthermore, most of the minibosses in the game are also available in the mod through an optional miniboss menu.
Going into more details, from the Dilapidated Temple Sculptor’s Idol, players can select any boss or miniboss and be transported straight to that fight. If they are victorious, they can continue to any other undefeated boss or go back to Dilapidated Temple. You can replay all bosses and minibosses and a fight will restart in case you die.
This mod includes over 2000 new lines of in-game scripting, 1000 param edits, and 1000 map changes. Naturally, newcomers should not be using this mod in their first playthrough. As the modder suggests, players should use the Boss Rush mod in order to re-experience the game in their second or third playthrough.
