Marvel's Blade announced, coming from Dishonored developers

I didn’t see this one coming. Arkane Lyon, the studio that brought you Dishonoured and Deathloop, has just taken to The Game Awards stage to announce their next game, Marvel’s Blade.

It’s been a very exciting night so far. Santa Monica Studio and PlayStation showed up to announce that God of War Ragnarök is getting a free DLC expansion, titled Valhalla, that’s set to release next week. SEGA stopped by to announce new Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio entries, plus we finally got a release date for Team Ninja’s Rise of the Ronin. Neil Newbon won the Best Performance award for his role as Astarion in Baldur’s Gate 3, and Hideo Kojima stopped by to announce his very confusing upcoming Xbox exclusive, OD. We’re here to talk about Marvel’s Blade though, so let’s do it.

Take a look at the trailer for Marvel’s Blade below.

Everybody’s favourite vampire hunter is getting his own AAA release. Marvel’s Blade is in the early stages of development, but we did get a juicy trailer showcasing the character. Seemingly the game boasts a similar aesthetic to Deathloop. Devs have described it as “a single-player, third-person game set in the heart of Paris.”

The project is being made in collaboration with Marvel Games who said in a blog post that Marvel’s Blade would be “mature”, so don’t expect to see any watering down of the character. The game is set to feature a brand new story. We don’t have any kind of release window seeing as, like I mentioned, the game is in the very early stages of production. Still, it’s all very exciting.

Bill Rosemann, vice president and creative director of Marvel Games said, “In honour of Blade’s 50th anniversary, we have found the perfect match for the Daywalker in Arkane Lyon, a studio of uncompromising artists who continually push the boundaries of game design and innovation. In addition to their award-winning talent, it’s their personal passion and bold vision for our half-human, half-vampire iconoclast that makes this collaboration a perfect fit.” It sounds like the big Marvel game Xbox fans have been waiting for.
