We’ve organized our Sekiro guides into a few categories. No matter where you are in the game, our goal is the same: to make Sekiro understandable without spoiling anything. In the same way Sekiro is friendlier but not exactly friendly, we want to make it easier, not easy.

EXCLUSIVE: Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth reteam in this exclusive Men in Black: International image

There were many things to like about Thor: Ragnarok, and chief among them was the chemistry between unlikely allies Thor and Valkyrie, aka Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. Thompson’s Agent H is the new recruit (essentially the equivalent of Will Smith in the original), and Chris Hemsworth is Agent H, the more seasoned recruit that she’s paired with. This sci-fi franchise expansion will no doubt heavily utilise the charisma of its two leads, and you can see them together below in the exclusive
