Stray Blade is an action role playing game developed by ‘Point Blank Games‘ and published by ‘505 Games‘. Stray Blade is said to be coming out 20th of April 2023 on the Xbox Series X, PS5 and pc. X35 Earthwalker took notice of this game. He will be the judge. Looks like Stray Blade is bringing a big adventure. Let’s take a look.
Stray Blade has a not so simple story with some stuff in mystery but in terms of an action rpg, you know what to expect for sure concerning this story. So here we go. This all taking place in Acrea the lost valley. You died in this place though. Time passes, not stated how much but you also somehow came back to life. What’s the catch? You can’t leave this place now. Yep… you are stuck here.
Now Acrea the Lost Valley can be described as a forgotten place. It’s wild with the greenery and clearly overgrown. If you couldn’t tell by now, there’s some powerful stuff about this place or going on. They’re legends about this place. Players must restore balance to this land. There’s stuff going on in Stray Blade. So be prepared.
We didn’t even talk about the characters in Stray Blade. You play as ‘a rouge adventurer’. Looking like master shifu’s cousin from kung fu panda. Small red panda like animal. Your ally? The Xhinnon wolf… Boji. This dude looking like a menace as you can’t see his face, just darkness. He got real armour. These are the two characters. Your mission is to get out of Acrea.
There is a variety of foes from humanoid wielding weapons to straight up creatures. Some large creatures as well with big swings to take you down. Players will need to get optimal with their attacks, manage their guard, time their dodges in order to defeat these enemies. These battles do look difficult as in you can die quite quickly if you mess up. Acquire skills for you to use in combat, watch your weight as you equip gear, craft what you need to be prepared. There’s definitely quite a bit going on.
We checked out some Stray Blade gameplay and it’s what we expected. It does remind us of Lord of the Fallen. Stray Blade will force players to get good at it. Casual players should be on their guard. There’s even a parry which obviously will give an advantage for the success of the technique. Very colourful game for sure. We do like what we see. Graphics and visuals have had a big step up from 2022 gameplay trailer. Details game has been stepped up.
Overall Stray Blade looks like a good game. We aren’t impressed and have seen enough to pull us in yet. We definitely want to see more. We truly hope Stray Blade takes full advantage of the world they have created. This is a forgotten lost land. It has legends about it and mysteries. There’s greenery everywhere. You can put almost anything in this world and setting. So don’t be average with this. The developers ‘Point Blank games’ have done a good job so far but we need to see more. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for this game. Now Stray Blade may have a forgotten land but one thing that can never be forgotten is… the ‘Earth Walk!’
