Developer Shift Up debuted an exciting new trailer for its upcoming action game, Stellar Blade, along with a confirmed release date of 26 April 2024. The PS5 exclusive will deliver some impressive visuals and fast-paced combat that will surely appeal to fans of games like Bayonetta, Devil May Cry and Nier Automata. Additionally, PlayStation also revealed the two different editions, the standard and Digital Deluxe, that players can pre-order very soon.
Stellar Blade was initially revealed all the way back in 2019 under the working title Project Eve. It was also originally announced as a multi-platform release for PS4, Xbox One and PC but it looks like it will be exclusive to PS5 on release – other platforms could follow soon after if it’s a timed exclusive deal with PlayStation. In 2022, it was re-revealed and officially titled Stellar Blade, teasing its now-missed 2023 release window.
The good news is that fans won’t have to wait much longer for the game as it launches on 26 April. The latest gameplay trailer provides a closer look at not only the combat but the RPG-lite mechanics like skill trees, upgrades and different battle tools that the protagonist Eve can use.
As for the editions you can purchase, the standard edition of Stellar Blade will cost $69,99. We’re currently waiting for local listings to be updated as well.
