Unfortunately, Sekiro lacks vanilla support for DualShock controllers. This means that if you do decide to use your PlayStation controller to play Sekiro, you’ll have to get accustomed to the Xbox button layout.

Bloodborne Combat


FromSoftware has been known to develop many unique and highly regarded games in the past, and Bloodborne is no different. This mod completely reconfigures Sekiro’s combat system to resemble that of the highly regarded PlayStation exclusive.

Similar to Bloodborne’s combat system, deflecting attacks are useless with this mod enabled, as the combat is heavily focused on dodging attacks. In addition, landing hits on enemies will also allow you to regain health.
