Stray Blade – launches on Xbox

Stray Blade, the fantasy indie action-adventure with a fresh approach to intense combat from global video game publisher 505 Games and developer Point Blank Games, raises steel for launch on Thursday, April 20th, 2023 for Windows PC platforms (Steam and EPIC), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.

Embark on a journey to Acrea the Lost Valley, a once peaceful valley torn asunder by war and death. Navigate a vibrant, ancient world wrought with destruction as a resurrected adventurer who perished in the ruins. Travel alongside Boji, the Adventurer’s Xhinnon Wolf companion responsible for their second chance at life, and uncover the forgotten treasures lying in the deepest corners of a world altered by the Adventurer’s actions.

Now eternally bound to the land they wander, the Adventurer must build a lasting bond with Boji to regain their freedom. Discover lore to advance Boji’s craftsmanship and create powerful new weapons to master a hyper-responsive combat system. Balance quick reactions with adaptable strategies to affect the flow of combat and subsequently change the world. Watch time continue to march forward with each failure.

Approach death with a defiant grin. Explore an approachable cycle of life and death until the valley resembles its halcyon days. Thanks to explicit in-game indicators for combat, Stray Blade focuses on fun instead of frustration. Witness the world-altering effects of the Adventurer’s actions by revisiting areas — but do not be shaken by the greater challenges lying in wait.

Restore peace to colorful city ruins, frozen caverns, curving canyons, decaying throne rooms of towering god-kings, and other overgrown areas buried by time to restore peace when Stray Blade launches on Thursday, April 20th, 2023 for Windows PC (Steam and EPIC), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S for £39.99 GBP, with a 20% launch discount on all platforms from now until Thursday, April 27 6pm BST.
