Developer Point Blank and publisher 505 Games’ upcoming Soulslike action RPG Stray Blade might not be the sort of visual beast that’ll take your breath away, but the game has looked promising in all that we’ve seen of it so far. A new trailer has now been released, focusing on its story, and sure enough, it continues to look intriguing.
Stray Blade is set in the valley of Acrea, a once-peaceful land that has now become a war-torn place of death. The protagonist finds himself bound to the valley, and to break the connection, he partners with a magical beast companion called Boji, with the two deciding to work together so they can not only leave the valley, but also uncover its history and discover what led to its current state. The trailer also offers several glimpses of combat, enemies, and a number of different locations- check it out below.
Stray Blade is set to launch for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC sometime in 2023.
